St. Patrick's Day is not a Costa Rican celebration but North Americans who live here usually try to mark the occasion. This year, we were fortunate to be invited to Jean and Bill's bash and everyone had a great time. There was Irish music, the weather was of course fantastic, and there was food galore. Thanks very much, Jean and Bill.
I'll post a few photos of the occasion but, first, Scruffy has something he wants to say:
For those who may not know, Scruffy appeared on our road one day a few years ago - collarless, confused, lame and apparently abandoned. He eventually decided to adopt our neighbors Rose Mary and Tony as his new guardians. They had him neutered and checked by the vet. Now he is famous in Costa Rica and elsewhere. Rose Mary supplies him with colorful bandanas to wear and here he is in his St. Patrick's Day best. He's a small dog with some obvious terrier background.
Here are the other photos.
