>> On a vacation in Rome , I noticed a marble column in St. Peter's with a
>> golden telephone on it. As a young priest passed by, I asked who the
>> telephone was for. He told me it was a direct line to Heaven, and if I'd
>> like to call, it would be a thousand dollars. I was amazed, but declined
>> the
>> offer.
>>
>> Throughout Italy , I kept seeing the same golden telephone on a marble
>> column. At each, I asked about it and the answer was always the same: a
>> direct line to Heaven and I could call for a thousand dollars.
>>
>> On the way homeward, I stopped in Ireland . I decided to attend Mass at
>> a
>> local village church. When I walked in the door I noticed the golden
>> telephone. Underneath it there was a sign stating: "DIRECT LINE TO
>> HEAVEN
>> 25
>> cents". "Father", I said , "I have been all over Italy and in all the
>> cathedrals I visited, I've seen telephones exactly like this one. But
>> the
>> price is always a thousand dollars. Why is it that this one is only 25
>> cents"?
>>
>> The priest smiled and said, "Ah! But you're in Ireland now! It's a local
>> call".
>>
>>
>> HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!

Erin go Bragh

Or as I used to say to my buddy Adam O'Keefes beautiful sister, "Erin go bra-less!"

And she was a doll in '77'! Hope she's been well cared for!

Re: good St Pat's story

I too had a friend named Erin that I gave the same salutation to yearly on this fine day. One year, the spirits were upon her and she did, God Bless her. Having just finished a fine lunch of corned beef, boiled potatoes and cabbage, I must say my daily blessing and then vote again on Proposition 317

Re: good St Pat's story

I did my patriotic duty as an Irishman yesterday and attempted to drink my bodyweight in beer and whiskey...... No sure of the final score ?
