Starting March 11, 2021

"If I traveled to the end of the rainbow as Dame Fortune did intend, Murphy would be there to tell me the pot's at the other end." -Edward Koch (1924-2013), American politician, lawyer, political commentator, film critic, and television personality

Hey, we have to laugh! We thought this quote was rather funny. All kidding (and Murphy’s Law) aside, things are looking up! While you may not find a rainbow with a pot of gold at the end, we have plenty to celebrate, like St. Patrick’s Day, with festivities starting tomorrow!

Plus, we’re getting a nice taste of warmer spring weather to come, when we can enjoy the great outdoors more comfortably. Remember - the clocks “spring ahead” this weekend!

Happy St. Paddy’s Day, and Happy Wanderings!
