Happy St. Patrick's Day

Tiny Town is all things Irish.  We were settled by Irish Catholics, who built the first mission church west of the Mississippi.  Unfortunately, the tornado took it to the ground.  There is a memorial to it, with a bit of the frame walls.

About ten years ago, they started an impromptu St. Patrick's Day parade.  It is more organized these days.  (And perhaps, not quite as much fun.)

And of course, our high school mascot is an Irish fella.


So, here is your Irish Blessing for 2013:

May your day be touched
by a bit of Irish luck,
brightened by a song in your heart,
and warmed by the smiles
of the people you love.

Always.
