I’ve been counting the minutes until St. Patrick’s Day so I could share this video with you. Have you seen it? It makes me laugh every time I watch it—which is more often than might be considered normal for a 40-something woman. But I love me some Muppets.
I also love “Danny Boy” because it reminds me of my grandpa, Edward Valentine, who was a true Irish gentleman with a heart of gold. We sang “Danny Boy” to send him on his way Home, so many years ago now. But I still think about Grandpa Ed often and smile whenever I hear this song, even—maybe especially—this silly version.
So Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you and yours. And as Grandpa Ed would say, “May you get to Heaven half an hour before the Devil knows you’re dead.”
