With St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow, there will be a lot of people drinking green beer and/or Guinness – as depicted on this postcard:
Not that I approve of animals getting intoxicated – so I can understand why the cat is drawing the blinds to hide its alcoholic shame. But St. Patrick’s Day is about having fun, so open those blinds and proudly drink your Guinness!
Oddly enough, this is the only postcard I have from Northern Ireland. Here’s the reverse side of the postcard:
How are you! Viele liebe Gruze aus [Greetings from] Northern Ireland. I really like to work with the kids here from Belfast, even if it is sometimes quite difficult to understand them. We, the international group (from Australia, Netherlands, Spain, GD) is living here together in a church hall. Now it’s Sunday night, and we have just spent our weekend on a camping site at the coast to enjoy this green island. We really have to keep attention not to spend all our money in the pubs of Belfast. Ciao. Mach’s gut.”
Like the plastered pussy, my German pen-pal, and everyone on St. Patrick’s Day – we all enjoy Ireland’s legendary liquid cheer!
