Happy Birthday Ralph

 

17th March, a very special day for the Irish, those who have a 4 leaf clover in their hand, and for us, to celebrate a family birthday down south.

Ralph, have a great day, I  hope all those girls behaved themselves, no wild parties in the paddock or woolshed, and goodies have arrived in the mail.four-leaf-clover courtesy of internet
