♥For My Grandfather Michael Murphy♥ He worked on the Central Railroad, in Jersey City, NJ (100 years ago). Unloading box cars with a big hook.
He and his fellow workers, sweltered in the summer and froze in the winter! Videos
My Mother told me that when she was a little girl, the young guys who hung out on the street corner of her Montgomery Street; Jersey City neighborhood would always ask her, "Mary Murphy, what nationality are you?"
And she'd always say, "Proud Irish!"
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

One of the first songs I ever learned to sing. I bought my first Clancy Brothers record albums, when I was 11.
My Grandfather Mike, is the one who taught me to love Irish music. He would play the Irish records for me. He played the Darling Girl From Clare over and over and over. Mike really loved me.
My Uncle Timmy Murphy (Mike's Son), is the one who taught me to love to read.
When I was real little maybe 3, I had a fairy tales book as big as myself.
My Uncle Timmy would read it to me for hours.
He'd read a couple of stories and say, "I have to go now." I'd say, just one more story.
He'd read another story and say, "Ok? I have to go now." I'd say, just one more story.
We would repeat this until I fell asleep. This would go on, through many stories.
I knew all the words to these songs too. Even as a young child.
"The strangers came and tried to teach us their ways. They scorned us for being as we are.
But you might as well go chasing after moonbeams, or try to light a penny candle from a star."
♥The Statue Of Liberty; Thanks You All. For Your Activism♥ (Still no news of the Court's decision in Jersey City's case/appeal, to stop the spectra natural gas pipeline. I read nj.com everyday, it should be news)?
Ya, ha, San Antone!
