Top O' The Mornin' To Ya

Eastern Bluebird

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all my Irish friends.  Of course, that includes everyone, right?  Everyone's got a bit of Irish in them, especially on St. Patrick's Day.  We're all wearing our green here and our thought bubbles are in the shape of shamrocks.

We're thinking of heading to the Kennedy Center this evening for a performance of Irish Dancing on the Millennium Stage.  Every day, at 6 pm, there's a free performance, and tonight's is in honor of the holiday.  There's a link that you can click to watch it live, if you are so inclined.  Look for us in the audience!  I'm hoping that the Smarty can leave work in time to join us.  You can't get much more Irish than dancing a jig at the Kennedy Center, can you?

The bluebird up there doesn't have a thought bubble, like the others in the series.  He was a little shy, and somehow adding "chiti WEEW wewidoo" to a thought bubble comprised of cut-out-magazine letters didn't hold much appeal.  So.  He got a wash of gouache, instead.

I think he'll look gorgeous in a cut paper collage, don't you?  I know just the blue paper to use...
