U is for Undiscovered

Today we will examine some of the places on my Travel Bucket List.  I hope to visit them before I die.  This is yet another way I keep trying to motivate myself to exercise and lose weight.  I present these destinations in the order they occurred to me as I was daydreaming.

The Luck o’ the Irish to Ya!


by  Lillian Csernica on March 17, 2015

 

Sorry I haven’t been around with my usual regularity.  I had a sudden deadline on a short story that required two all nighters (not in a row, thank God), and then I’ve been wrestling with the depression again.  Sleep deprivation is a terrible thing, but in the end it was worth it!  I can’t talk about it yet, but I’ll have some good news soon.

Here’s to a long life and a merry one.
A quick death and an easy one.
A pretty girl and an honest one.
A cold beer and another one.
May your wishes come true and your truth be wise.  Happy St Patrick’ s Day!
Leprechauns, castles, good luck and laughter.
Lullabies, dreams and love ever after.
A thousand welcomes when anyone comes…
That’s the Irish for You!
May your blessings outnumber The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you Wherever you go.

May your glass be ever full.
May the roof over your head be always strong.
And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you’re dead.
