Wow, the former Hamptonians come out of the woodwork! I remember Smitty's barbecue well. My parents still live near Gosnold's Hope Park, near your old neighborhood. We usually visit them every year and a half and our next planned visit is for Xmas this year.
what a great story!
still, leprechauns are cute!
I suppose there might be some malicious ones!
Ever read the Burning of Bridget Cleary? Gives a whole different outlook on the subject of fairies and cutesy little people.
It's a true story btw--happened in rural Ireland in the 1890's.
