Last day of March

J got a late Christmas/St. Patrick's Day combo box from Shoeshine today. It was filled with Irish goodies: a book to learn how to "talk Irish", a bumper sticker, some note cards, etc. But, the crowning glory (pun intended) was this:

When he found the hat at the bottom of the box, he started laughing, oh, ho ho. When I told him yes, Shoeshine had given up the hat for him, he couldn't believe it. All the time I was getting the camera, I heard happy chortling, ho, ho, ho. I asked him why he sounded like Santa when it was a St Patrick's Day hat? I could tell he was happy, but couldn't see if he was smiling for the camera.  Afterward I asked him did he really have part of the beard in his mouth?  Well, yes, he had to hold it in place somehow!

J had the pipe prop, but thought he should have a stein in his hand. I told him the cookie jar was good enough.

And by the way, it's time to put the decorations away.

I'd take the beard off and wear that all the time.
