St. Pat's

Big Daddy grew up in Chicago, where St. Patrick's Day is well celebrated. From dying the Chicago River green to the infamous parade (Ferris Buller anyone?!), in Chicago - they know that everyone's Irish on St. Patrick's Day!

So he was really excited when he and his business partners decided to dye the fountain green at one of their developments. One of the partners carefully researched what type of dye to use. Don't want to have a green fountain year round! Just for one day, thank you very much! :-)

They finally settled on a company that supplies dye to not only dye the Chicago River, but also to dye the White House fountain. Fancy!

Here's Big Daddy handing out the dye. Not knowing how much dye they would need, they ordered 6 containers of dye and ended up only using 2.

Pouring in the dye:

It's green!

Happy (Belated) St. Patrick's Day!

May the road rise up to meet you! May the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warmly on your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
