 Irish Luck
- Remember to  send it back!

I
want this back. It  DOES work.

His name was Fleming,
and  he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day, while  trying
to make a living for his family, he heard  a cry for help
coming from a nearby bog. He  dropped his tools

and ran
to the  bog.

There, mired to his waist in black 
muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and  struggling to free
himself. Farmer Fleming saved  the lad from what could have
been a slow and  terrifying death.

The
next  day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the  Scotsman's
sparse surroundings. An elegantly  dressed nobleman stepped out
and introduced  himself as the father of the boy Farmer
Fleming  had saved.

'I want to repay 
you,' said the nobleman. 'You saved my son's 
life.'

'No, I can't accept  payment for what
I did,' the Scottish farmer  replied waving off the offer. At
that moment,  the farmer's own son came to the door of
the  family hove

'Is that your  son?' the
nobleman  asked.

'Yes,' the farmer 
replied proudly.

'I'll make  you a deal. Let
me provide him with the level of  education my own son will
enjoy If the lad is  anything like his father, he'll no doubt
grow to  be a man we both will be proud of.' And that he 
did.

Farmer Fleming's son attended the  very best
schools and in time, graduated from  St. Mary's Hospital
Medical School in London,  and went on to become known
throughout the world  as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming,
the  discoverer of  Penicillin.

Years
afterward,  the same nobleman's son who was saved from
the  bog was stricken with pneumonia.

What  saved
his life this time?  Penicillin.

The name of the
nobleman?  Lord Randolph Churchill .. His son's 
name?

Sir Winston  Churchill.

Someone
once said: What  goes around comes around.

Work
like  you don't need the money.

Love like 
you've never been hurt.

Dance like  nobody's
watching.

Sing like nobody's  listening.

Live
like it's Heaven on  Earth.

It's National Friendship
Week Send  this to everyone you consider A 
FRIEND.

Pass this on, and brighten some  ones
day.

AN IRISH FRIENDSHIP WISH: 

I hope it
works…

May  there always be work for your hands
to  do;

May
your purse always hold a coin or  two;

May the sun always shine on
your  windowpane;

May a rainbow be certain
to  follow each rain;

May the hand of a  friend
always be near you;
May God fill your  heart with
gladness to cheer you.

and may  you be in heaven a half
hour before the devil  knows you're
dead.
