Perfect: Patrick's birthday on St. Patrick's Day!

For all of you who follow him here on Authors Den

You get a picture of the guy and why I married him.

He has not an ounce of shame or inhibition to hold him back

He loves a good time, a beer or two, and is willing to take some flack.

So today's his birthday, hip hip hurray! add a cheer or two

An Irish jig, a Blarney stone, please toast him with your crew,

The guy who lights up many a life with his Finnish wit and wishes,

A leprechaun in disguise. Here's to a pot of gold. . All my love, your Missus

Sure and if he gets the pot of gold, his Missus will have her share. This is cute, and nicely written. The one who knows him best is the one who can tell the story.

Oh, this is just too perfect! Happy Birthday Patrick!

He's a remarkable scholar and forever finding humor in everything and as you say he's a heroic husband ;-) so...there is no other word, at least not in English, to call him other than Saint!
I hope you both have a wonderful party today and that warmth fills the house.
