My Irish Heritage

My Great Aunt...Margaret Francis Flahavan



May your pockets be heavy—
Your heart be light,
And may good luck pursue you
Each morning and night.


And Luck pursuing you is a heck of a lot better than my Aunt Margaret!

(You can't say I didn't warn you...)

Love the picture...what a hoot!! Thanks for the good old Irish Blessing!! I have a similar picture from WAY back of a Great Great something or other who was dressed in a bathing suit showing her knees with a poem that says..."I can show my ankles, I can show my knees, I'm a free born American, I can show what I please!"
