Slainte guys!

I'll be hoisting one for you around 2pm today. Heading to place called O'Tooles. Been friends with the family that owns it for years.


btw-LOL at the coined term "Imperial SWMBO"......

Don't worry, Billy... we'll just drink up the rest of the old keg that has probably been on tap for a few days. You'll likely have a freshly tapped one by the time you get there.

BURP


Mmmmm.. the aroma of stout, corned beef, and cabbage.

(Always a pleasure to see you, Jeff.)

I must say that I wasn't terribly impressed with Hibernian's Beef&Cabbage.

Jeff, SWMBO, and my kids all had fish&chips, and that looked like a better choice.

The Guinness stew looked tastey, too, but SWMBO is cooking up an Irish dinner using some of my stout tonight, so I passed on a mean with beer in it for lunch.



I've got to dig up my family crest and post it. The Walker's are irish. (My dad swears we're from England, but the research I did on the crest and the original Walker's that came over with William Penn says otherwise.)

edit: Ah.. it was right here on my laptop:

I've seen my family crest from England at my grandmother's but haven't done any research. My grandmother was really into geneaology (sp?), but since she's passed nobody knows where her research is?

My father has a Confederate cavalry saber that was found inside a wall at one of our family's homesteads in VA.

My great aunt (still alive) is big into the geneaology thing and has oodles of information. That's the only way I traced things back to William Penn. However, I have no info beyond this (on the other side of the pond) other than the coat of arms.

The three moons represent three sons in the family. The wall across the middle symbolizes that they were guardians/soldiers in the city where they lived.

The image above is missing the motto, but it's: Non sine periculo. (Not without danger.)

Actually... looking over some of the notes I took, the name "Walker" in ireland was brought into the country from English immigrants, so I guess my Dad is ultimately correct, but the coat of arms was not created until those Walker's were residing in Ireland.

At least I know that I'm supposed to be drinking Ales, no matter what.
