St. Patricks Day
In Arranmore the Beaver Island gang was chided by the priest: You're not going to miss St. Pat's, now are ye? No, father, not if we can help it, they replied. For once the weather cooperated, and they were all home in time to dig out their green duds and get down to Main Street for the obstacle race, tug of war, and fish toss. The sun was shining, airplanes flew low overhead, and exuberance was in the airfor that evening the travelers had the chance to show off the tricky steps they were taught by our better dancing Irish twins.
