Manny’s birthday book – May 11

May 11, 2011

Kate Greenaway's Birthday Book for Children

My grandmother, who I called Manny, had a birthday book.  I’m posting the entries throughout the year, as they appear.

From Manny’s Birthday Book:  May 11 – Megan

“Paddy, oh Paddy, now where do you go,

Stepping an Irish jig, dancing just so?”

“Oh, shure I’m off then, to Dublin town,

To buy wife and children aich a new gown.”

Megan is one of Manny’s many grandchildren – twelfth or thirteenth, I’m just not sure.  When Manny died in 1989, she had 19 grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
