SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'
You ask...what does BEGOSH AND BEGORRAH mean?
Celtic/Gaelic ~ By God, and all that is holy. It is an personal exclamation of truth, "Be Gosh".  I've seen BEGORRAH spelled with two R's and single R's so who knows? All I can say is, I love saying BEGOSH AND BEGORRAH !
(
take note though -- this saying is not said by Irish people EVER, it is an invented expression.)

 HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY From an Irish Lass !

HOME AND GARDEN

Out of clutter, find simplicity.

Albert Einstein
Obviously, Einstein has never been to my house.
 

There's a dear little plant that grows in our isle,
'Twas St Patrick himself, sure, that set it;
And the sun on his labor with pleasure did smile,
And with dew from his eye often wet it.
It thrives through the bog, through the brake, and the mireland;
And he called it the dear little shamrock of Ireland...
--Andrew Cherry

Lint from your dryer is great for lining nests so put some out in the yard for the birds to pick up. Save it until you get an old toilet paper roll and then stuff it and then put out for the birds.

Jello Cookies
Jello gives these cookies their flavor and their color.
There are so many flavors of Jello at the store,
so the possibilities are endless.
•3/4 cup Wesson Oil
•1 cup granulated Sugar
•1 small pkg. Of Jello (any flavor, this determines
what color your cookies will be)
•2 eggs
•1 tsp vanilla extract
•2 1/2 cups self rising flour

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix all ingredients together.
Roll dough into small balls and flatten with a glass
dipped lightly in oil and then in sugar.
Bake 6-8 minutes.



JOKES AND CARTOONS
Give me a sense of humor, Lord,
Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some humor out of life,
And pass it on to other folk.


A man must have written this joke
Why should you never iron a 4-leaf clover? You don't want to press your luck. --Daryl Stout

Bagpiper at a Funeral
As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a Funeral Director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man.
He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper's' cemetery in the back country.
As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost and, being a typical man, I didn't stop for directions.
I finally arrived an hour late and saw that the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only the
diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch.  I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late. I went to the
side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. I didn't know what else to do, so I started to play.
The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends.
I played like I've never played before for this homeless man.  And as I played 'Amazing Grace,' the workers began to weep.
They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I finished I packed up my bagpipes and started for my car. Though my head hung low, my heart was full.

As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, "I
Never seen nothin' like that before and I've been putting in septic tanks for twenty years."

Apparently I'm still lost... it's a man thing



Paddy was tooling along the road one fine day when the local policeman, a friend of his, pulled him over.

"What's wrong, Seamus?" Paddy asked.

"Well didn't ya know, Paddy, that your wife fell out of the car about five miles back?" said Seamus.

"Ah, praise the Almighty!" Paddy replied with relief. "I thought I'd gone deaf!"



A farmer named McBride lived alone in the Irish countryside with a pet dog he doted on. The dog finally died and McBride went to the parish priest and asked, "Father, the dog is dead. Could you be saying a mass for the creature?" Father Michael replied, "No, we cannot have service for an animal in the church, but there's a new denomination down the road. No telling what they believe. Maybe they'll do something for the animal."

McBride said "I'll go right now. Do you think $50,000 is enough to donate for the service?"
Father Michael asked, "Why didn't you tell me the dog was Catholic?"
