HOLLENBECK: Celebrating the wearin’ o’ the green year after year

March 21, 2011

Let’s just say this is better late than never, and I’m referring to St. Patrick’s Day. Hope everyone had a happy holiday.
Because of other obligations, the regular group I’m a part of that has been attending the St. Paddy’s Day parade in Hot Springs didn’t get to be there this year.
That was a disappointment, but if you’re Irish — really Irish — you have to have fun on the holiday wherever you can find it.

For example, I am always looking for material to write about so I asked my bride “What did you do for fun as a kid growing up in Ohio?” She pondered for a moment and responded “We rode our bikes, had sleepovers with friends and played in the crick.” She immediately noticed my inquisitive puppy head tilt and said “What?” I responded “Crick? Like creek?” Giving me the now familiar DA facial expression, she said “Yes. Have you not heard that word before? That’s what we called it in Ohio.”
