Darby O'Gill and Hunting Leprechauns

Today I'm joining Kathleen at Cuisine Kathleen for the St. Patrick's Day Crawl. Join her over there for all the fun!




This is one of my favorite movies of all time. I try to watch it at least once a year around St. Paddy's Day. I don't know how many times I've seen it. This movie has romance. One of Sean Connery's first movies (He's looking good. :)







I have always loved this song from the movie. It's such a happy song. (Who knew Sean could sing) Listening to this song will really put you in the "Irish" mood.


The movie has ghosts....................


But mostly, it's about Darby, whose goal in life is to catch a leprechaun....... After watching the movie so many times, I think I've become an expert on the wee people.



They are very musical...........






They like to drink....................








They can change shapes..............



And, most important, if you catch one, you get three wishes. (There was something else I'm supposed to remember, but I can't seem to think what it is right now.......hmmmm! )


So, be vewy, vewy quiet, cause I'm hunting me a leprechaun. hehehehe





I'll just follow this trail of shamrocks.



Aha! A leprechaun hat. There must be one close by.....





Here's his house. Hope he's home.





I caught you, old boy!! Now

I want my three wishes. #1 I want your pot of gold.

"Granted! It's yours ," he says. "But I won't tell you where it is" Then my #2 wish is for you to tell me where it is!. "It's at the end of the rainbow, of course", he says. Then my #3 wish is for you to take me there."

"Granted" he says.


And look! Here it is!!!!! "Oh I wish I could share this with all my bloggy friends."



POOF! What happened? The gold disappeared! Now I remember what the movie says about the wishes....."Three wishes I'll grant you, big or small, but if you wish the fourth wish, you lose them all."



Yes, those leprechauns are pretty sneaky fellows. hehehehe


Happy St. Patrick's Day! Thanks for stopping by.

I haven't seen that movie in years. I didn't know it was Sean Connery! Guess I was to young to be impressed.

I loved reading this post and looking at the cute pictures.

I see that quite a few bloggers, including me, caught leprechauns this year... I was lucky enough to get his gold!

Talk to you later ;)
