About Me

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Better late then NEVER!

The largest Shamrock in the World at the intersection of Main and the Highway

Here in O'Neill Nebraska, they take their St. Patrick's day very seriously. This is the Irish capitol of Nebraska after all. They have an annual St. Patty's day parade. We learned that this years turn out was the best in History, simply because it was the first time that it was above 40 and not snowing! We took Gracie and met up with the Bourquins and even ran into the sister Missionaries and the Pilgrims... we had a great time!
I was surprised to see such a large color guard with the Band.... it impressed me!

The Famous green horse, apparently the man isn't highly regarded in the community...He is at the bars though!

I am sure you can tell what is going on!?

And I was feeling pretty good with the green food I made that day! That is impressive! Looks like fun!
