Happy St. Patrick's Day Anyway

All week long I've planned that today, in honor of St. Patrick's Day, I'd post a photo of my stepfather's Irish mother, Agnes Blair Hofmann. This morning it occurred to me that Agnes wasn't Irish; she was a Scotswoman. What had I been thinking?

Never mind. Agnes is all I've got for today. She was lovely, and my daughters and my sister have never seen her picture, so Agnes it is.


  1. What a wonderful old photo! And hey, she probably spoke with an accent, right??

  2. A Scots accent is almost like an Irish accent, both Celtic.
