SOLC 2014 Day Sixteen: Our pot of gold

It's the last day of our spring break, and at least two of us in the household had a mild case of the grumps this morning.  Until...
                                                     
Seamus came a bit early this year.




The generous leprechaun normally visits on St. Patrick's Day.  But college girl has to head north at noon to resume her studies, so we were graced with our annual gift of gold a day early.  

This year Seamus left 60 (chocolate) coins scattered around the living room.  College girl and teenboy found all of them within a matter of minutes; noteworthy, because there have been years when the last gold coin or two are found among the Easter eggs.  It's nice of Seamus to always leave an even number of coins so there's one less reason for the siblings to squabble.

And Irish eyes are smilin' once again.
