I have to credit Dale for the rest
of my Irish posts. She took the time,
and I stole it all.


Sure, ye'll want t' scrall al the
way doon t' see al me new postin's
t' celebrate the great tings about
Arland!  (Beautiful arrangement of
"Amazin' Grace" at the bottom!)


My Favorite Leprechaun

This cutie-pie was once my 5th grader.
I took this picture on H'een, a hundred years ago.  Before he graduated, his family moved 
BACK to their home in Kilkee, Ireland.  He & girlfriend visited me in Dublin the night before Jan,
Jean & I returned to the States.  His
mom, a FB friend, sent pictures of their wedding last June.  Gotta be early 30s.
Where did the time go?

No video with this, but it's great music &
you can read the Irish jokes while listening 
to this YouTube collection.



You Gotta Love the Irish
Paddy was driving down the street in a sweat because he had an
 important meeting and couldn't find a parking place.   Looking up
to heaven he said, "Lord take pity on me.   If you find me a parking
place I will go to Mass every Sunday for the rest of me life and
give up me Irish Whiskey!" 

Miraculously, a parking place appeared.

Paddy looked up again and said, "Never mind, I found one."
Father Murphy walks into a pub in Donegal, and asks the first man he meets, "Do you want to go to heaven?" 

The man said, "I do, Father."

The priest said, "Then stand over there against the wall."

Then the priest asked the second man, "Do you want to go to heaven?"

"Certainly, Father," the man replied. 

"Then stand over there against the wall," said the priest.

Then Father Murphy walked up to O'Toole and asked, "Do you want to go to heaven?"

O'Toole said, "No, I don't Father." 

The priest said, "I don't believe this..   You mean to tell me that when you die you don't 
want to go to heaven?"

O'Toole said, "Oh, when I die , yes.   I thought you were getting a group together to go right now."

This high-spirited Irish drinking song is R-rated
and very earthy.
Listen at your own risk.  You've been warned.

Paddy was in  New York .

He was patiently waiting and watching the traffic cop on a busy street crossing.   The
cop stopped the flow of traffic and shouted, "Okay, pedestrians."   Then he'd allow the
traffic to pass.

He'd done this several times, and Paddy still stood on the sidewalk.

After the cop had shouted, "Pedestrians! " for the tenth time, Paddy went over to him
and said, "Is it not about time ye let the Catholics across?"

Gallagher opened the morning newspaper and was dumbfounded to read in the obituary
column that he had died.   He quickly phoned his best friend, Finney. 

"Did you see the paper?" asked Gallagher. "They say I died!!"

"Yes, I saw it!" replied Finney.   "Where are ye callin' from?"
An Irish priest is driving down to New York and gets stopped for speeding in
Connecticut.  The state trooper smells alcohol on the priest's breath and then sees an
empty wine bottle on the floor of the car. 

He says, "Sir, have you been drinking?"

"Just water," says the priest.

The trooper says, "Then why do I smell wine?"

The priest looks at the bottle and says, "Good Lord! He's done it again!"

Walking into the bar, Mike said to Charlie the bartender, "Pour me a stiff one - just had
another fight with the little woman." 

"Oh yeah?" said Charlie , "And how did this one end?"

"When it was over," Mike replied, "She came to me on her hands and knees."

"Really," said Charles, "Now that's a switch!   What did she say?" 

She said, "Come out from under the bed, you little chicken."
Patton staggered home very late after another evening with his drinking buddy, Paddy. 
  He took off his shoes to avoid waking his wife, Kathleen. 

He tiptoed as quietly as he could toward the stairs leading to their upstairs bedroom but
misjudged the bottom step.   As he caught himself by grabbing the banister, his body
swung around and he landed heavily on his rump.   A whiskey bottle in each back pocket
broke and made the landing especially painful. 

Managing not to yell, Patton sprung up, pulled down his pants, and looked in the hall
mirror to see that his butt cheeks were cut and bleeding.   He managed to quietly find a
full box of Band-Aids and began putting a Band-Aid as best he could on each place he
saw blood.

He then hid the now almost empty Band-Aid box and shuffled and stumbled his way to

In the morning, Patton woke up with searing pain in both his head and butt and Kathleen
staring at him from across the room. 

She said, "You were drunk again last night weren't you?"

Patton said, "Why you say such a mean thing?"

"Well," Kathleen said, "it could be the open front door, it could be the broken glass at
the bottom of the stairs, it could be the drops of blood trailing through the house, it could
be your bloodshot eyes, but mostly ..... it's all those Band-Aids stuck on the hall mirror.

  Happiness starts with a smile...

  …….we all need a good laugh to start our days!
The Contagious Power of Laughter...Too Much Fun 

When you think of riding the subway, laughter and joy aren’t the first words that spring to mind.  It’s a cramped place full of grumpy people either coming home from a bad day at work or are just generally upset.  Yet if you’re lucky enough, sometimes you can find happiness in a subway train.

One such magical moment was captured when a Belgian advertising agency working for Coco-Cola hired an actor to randomly start laughing on the train.

With the tagline–“Happiness starts with a smile”– their new ad aims to bring a bit of joy to everyone’s day.

Just watch and we dare you not to let out a small giggle, too!

This is the Marshall High School classes of 1960 and 1961 Website. What started out as a reunion website evolved into a "Stay In Touch" with classmates website. Each Classmate and our Guests have a personal page that is set up so they can share with us the things that have been going on with themselves and their families since High School.  This is a great place to brag on your children and grandchildren, share your experiences and plans.  Feel free to "link" your Facebook, My Space, You Tube, etc. to your personal page. Insert recent photos of you and your family, add your "since I left MHS" history, etc. 

The site will be updated, active and useful for as long as class members want it to be. Update your personal information anytime you wish, and encourage other classmates to continue updating theirs.  When you enter the Home Page, there is a box in the upper right hand corner that will indicate who else is using the site.  To send an Instant Message to that person, simply click on the box and type in your message.  When they get your message they can immediately respond.   One can also go to the Message Center and contact anyone in the classes and/or our Guests, to begin a dialogue.  

Addditionally, there are website Administrators available to assist with preparation of your personal page, as well as respond to questions you have about the site. They also, check new data entered by classmates to assure that it is admissable. for the class of 1960 and for the class of 1961.
