Good Monday morning Troopers and Oldtimers ... ..

I hope everyone had a  "Happy St Patrick's Day".  We had a family gathering with Corned Beef and Cabbage, Red Potatoes and Carrots, and Soda Bread. Faux Key Lime Pie for dessert (weight watcher style)

My Brother, Steve, is coming for a visit next week. He wants to see us before his surgery on April 10.

Hope everyone is doing well. Enjoy the day the Lord has given us! Take care!

Toujours Pret!

Just more proof that you can take the boy out of Jersey but you can’t take Jersey out of the boy.
