Hail and Farewell St. Patty's Style

decked out in green

We held our third St. Patrick's Day party for the first time in our new house. The parties started while living in Japan and we were excited to celebrate with our friends and neighbors in Pensacola this year.

DaddyO made his traditional corned beef and cabbage. He got a head start on the cooking and began corning the beef ten days early!

DaddyO finished the carport just in time for the festivities and we enjoyed visiting with friends under the twinkling lights.


The party also turned into a Hail and Farewell for DaddyO's squadron. Every few months incoming pilots are "hailed" and outgoing are bidden "farewell". DaddyO said goodbye to a few of his good friends as they move to the to the West Coast and Middle East.
