The Fall Happenings are kicking off next weekend & we're going to be right there!!! The Newport Waterfront Irish Festival starts next Saturday, clog dancers, bagpipers, classic Irish Imports (maybe I can snag me a new Irish Fisherman's sweater), Pipe & Drum Corps, Irish Tenors, Irish pub fare...Bangers & Mash, Fish & Chips, Corned Beef Dinners, Shepherd’s Pie, Spiral Potatoes, Fried Oysters, Kettle Corn and of course a pint of Guinness. I know it's the last weekend of summer but it's already getting chilly up here at night and if you look really close you can see that the leaves way up at the tops of the trees have already started to change! Fall is on it's way!
Then next Sunday we are going to our friends the Piccerelli's to help welcome their son Mark home!!! He's been in Iraq since last September, he touched down on US Soil the week before last, Mary (that's him momma & my pal) got to see him for the first time last Wednesday....Happy Momma Dance!!!
I've know Mark for a long time now, I've supported his mom through good times & bad. She cried a river when he came home and told them he joined the Army, he's Airborne now!! She was the first one I called when Billy came home and told us he was joining the Marines...she held onto me while I cried my river! Mark has been to Iraq, 4 times...he's getting a well deserved vacation :) after his leave is up he'll be heading back to FB & then onto Special Forces Training....but for a few days he'll be home making his momma crazy & next Sunday I get to get my long awaited Army Hug!!!! We always have a great time when we get together & they'll be making the trip down to North Carolina with us when Ms. Nikky ties the knot!
So that's it for tonight.
Until tomorrow, Be Safe & God Bless...please keep praying for our Military!
