I Caught A Leprechaun!

This is my St.Patrick's Day 
tale that I like to share every year.

~ ~ ~

You will not believe what I found in
my side yard!  Even I didn't
believe my eyes at first.

 Mr. Leprechaun!

This little guy was hiding
in this patch clover.

Is clover the same as shamrocks?
Well I think it is...
Yes I do!

I just had to get a better look.
I slowly crept closer...
but he saw me! 

And quicker than I could say
"Erin go Bragh" he had all his
gold coins gathered up.

 Well, there was no fooling him
what my intentions were.

But he underestimated just how
quick I could be...

So before he knew it, I had him in my
house and securely contained in my
handy dandy cloche!

Yesiree... Leprechaun under glass.

He was not going anywhere until
he handed over his pot of gold!

I told him I knew my rights...
after all I am Irish!
Yes I am...

So I waited, and waited,
and waited some more...

I waited so long that I started to fall asleep...

Then to my surprise... 
this is what I saw 
first thing in the morning!!!

He had forked over all his gold and left me 
this little rock to remember him by.
As if the gold wasn't enough...


I took that rock right back out to where
I had found him, and placed it smack
dab in the middle of all that clover
to mark this special place.

After all...
You just never know when 
you might find a Leprechaun!

I accidently deleted Debra's comment. So her it is (copied from my email) sorry Debra :)

Doll in the Looking Glass has left a new comment on your post "I Caught A Leprechaun!":

This was such a fun post -- definitely brought a smile to my face! Now you need to tell us how you spent all of those gold coins.

Thanks for leaving the sweet comment about my postcards. It is amazing how tiny some of the handwriting is and how lengthy some of the notes can be on the back of the cards. You prompted an idea of doing a post on the back of card messages.
