Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!


Wear your green today!

This is my great, great grandfather, John C. Ryan, who was born in County Tipperary, Ireland, in 1833.  He came to America at the age of 2.  This is my claim to being part Irish -- besides my curly, slightly reddish hair and blue eyes.  My maiden name was Ryan.  Thanks Grandpa Ryan!

My almost to be 90 year old dad went out with us to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day... He enjoyed a Green Beer. My maiden name is Neill and it should be O'Neill but they dropped the O, it seems, when coming to America.. Love the pictures for you Saint Patrick's Day post...
