Begorrah! St. Patty’s Day has come and gone, and I’m late with this post. O’Sorry!
As mentioned in a prior post, I used to draw a comic strip for a local paper back in the mid 90s. It was about a street musician named Busker.

May the blog posts rise up to meetcha! A belated Happy St. Pat’s to all!!
What do you think? Ever seen a street musician standing in a puddle of tears? Can you listen to Danny Boy without crying?? Hope you’ll leave a comment.
