Top o' the mornin' to ya!

Because Peter was  blonde with blue eyes,  an Armenian who had been born in Marash, growing up in the United States, a young man in an Armenian-American community, a young man surrounded by dark eyed, dark haired, dark skinned Armenians,  an Armenian growing up in the Irish neighborhoods of Brighton. . .  Because of his friends and because of his light skin, blonde hair and blue eyes,  the members of the Armenian community always called him "Irish" with a heavy Armenian accented rolled "r".  Perhaps Marash Girl should write the word as she heard it pronounced: Irrrrrish!  Peter's  children (except for Marash Girl who looks like her mother) have blonde hair and blue eyes as well.  Thus Peter and his family  (including Marash Girl) have always joined the Boston Irish in celebrating St. Patrick's Day!  Top o' the mornin' to ya!
