"Leprechauns, castles, good luck and laughter. Lullabies, dreams and love ever after. Poems and songs with pipes and drums. A thousand welcomes when anyone comes...That's the Irish for you!" ~ Old Irish Saying
The leprechaun made my night, with the exception that I forgot to put my charged battery into my camera and therefore I have no proof. I was at the local coffee shop which had a line-up of bands to entertain me for the evening, and I was the only nerd with my computer. One of the bands was from Dublin, thus explaining the leprechaun. No picture needed. Hmmm...I wonder...was he there looking for a pot of gold? Should I have searched for it? I'll be cheesy and say the pot of gold was the beautiful evening, the excellent music, the amusing crowd, and the almost full moon.
Eventually a couple of friends met up with me and seeing that one of them was 11 years-old, I was challenged to a game of Candy Land and lost. Very gracefully too. I might have finally out grown temper tantrums. Maybe.
