Forever Rainbows!

Are you always looking for that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?

Do you find when you get closer to the rainbow it just keeps getting farther away?

Well stop looking….it is probably right in your own back yard and has been this whole time!

My header pic was taken a year ago while on our way to see the “Little Rascals”.  Traveling down I-15 highway there is plenty of open space and some beautiful farm country.  I actually got this shot with my cell phone and these pics also with my cell phone.  Wow can you imagine what they would have looked like if I had my new camera!

Hope you are all having a wonderful March….2 of my grandsons were born on St. Patrick’s Day, both are 6 going on 7! 

Although I am not Irish…..I still like being kissed!  I really don’t know why that has always been a saying but hey, I am game…kiss me anyway! LOL

Huhoney has always told our children that he is a Leprechaunimage and he has from midnight every March 17th until dawn to find his pot of gold.  We never actually see him  because he sprinkles gold sleepy dust on us so we sleep through the night so he can look without being found out.  If he doesn’t find it he stays human….if he finds it he can return to his Leprechaun land and be with others like him.

Needless to say…..he has never found his pot of gold….image

And when the grandchildren hear him tell his tale, they really think about it.  They don’t want him to find it either.

Our oldest granddaughter Madi actually got in trouble in school when at the tender age of 5 she announced to the class that her Poppy was a Leprechaun.  The teacher then told her there were no such things.  She was very upset and when she got home she cried and cried to her mother (my daughter) about Poppy not being a real Leprechaun.  My daughter immediately got on the phone and called us.  She told Huhoney to tell Madi the TRUTH.  Tell her he was always just telling a story and that he really wasn’t.  So Huhoney said, “give Madi the phone”.

Guess what he told her…….LOL your right…..he told her that her teacher didn’t know what she was talking about because she NEVER had met a real live Leprechaun.  He was a REAL LIVE LEPRECHAUN and if she wanted to talk to him she could call him and he would straighten it out.

Needless to say, my daughter WAS NOT HAPPY WITH HIM but she did not dispute his claim.

The teacher never called.

To sure the deal, he sent her a gold coin.  A real gold coin.

Now tell me…………….Huhoney really is a Leprechaun right?

Hey I believe him!
