When I visited my Mom last week she was feeling low and did not really feel like going out. I knew she needed to see her friends, so we made our weekly trip to the Tri-Towns Senior Center. When she got on the elevator, there was a life size inflatable Irishman. Mom smiled and asked me to take her picture. She said..........that's all I wanted to do today was "hug an Irishman".
Mom's maiden name is "Mullan". The Mullan ancestors came from Ireland.
