"An Irishman walked out of a bar..." and other St. Patrick's Day non sequiturs.

Yesterday Doc, all of 7 years old, said to Grammo, "Tomorrow is St. Patrick's day. I want to go to a bar."

So we went to the pub this morning where they were having a special breakfast with live fiddle and guitar music. He was so excited. All five of us actually got a table in the crowded room and I shimmied him up to the bar so he could order a root beer straight from the bartender. Then they had a full Irish breakfast and I had a beer. The music was good, the food was good and we all had fun.
