Going to the dogs!
The 36th Irish Fair in St. Paul, an annual celebration of Irish heritage and culture, was held from Friday, August 7-Sunday, August 9 on Harriet Island. With approximately 100,000 attendees each year, this event is the largest free celebration of its kind in the nation. Despite the light rain, DH and I took a shuttle bus from Union Depot in downtown and spent several hours among many Irish (?) onlookers who were doing what Jim and I were doing: eating, listening to Irish musicians, examining all the Irish items for sale, watching Irish dance and movies. Our favorite spot was the tent that held several breeds of Irish dogs who were patiently accepting the admiration and pets from young and old alike. The two here are, on the left, an Irish terrier and the big fella is an Irish Wolfhound.
DH and I are going to Door County for a few days. No wifi, whatever will I do?!
Speaking of dogs, son Karl will live at our house with our dogs. No animals, whatever will I do?!
