Time For St. Urho!

And feel free, as you imbibe, to chant with St. Urho:

Heinäsirkka, heinäsirkka, mene täältä hiiteen

It’s never too late to save those wine grapes!

I wore my purple jacket and my Finnish friend put on St. Paddy’s day beads and we hit downtown St. Paul together. Bah, still not much going on there on a Sunday.

Oh well. The spirit was willing even if the crowds were weak . . .
