Come sit a spell--looky at my St. Paddy's day Shamrocks (see photo)!
Course, most of the year, these is nothin' but weeds. But today, sweet pets, they's jes' lovely.
Did a bit o' readin on Celts today--got a fair bit of Celtic blood meself, you see (mixed with French and Lebanese). Ya'll ever hear what Caesar and Pliny said about the Celts? Said they engaged in human sacrifice and Pliny wrote of their cannibalism. Mercy, but they was an unruly tribe! That is until Patrick came along....they threw him in prison four or five times on account of the Druids didn't care for his trying to civilize 'em.
Paddy was the first to preach against slavery too (432 AD)---since the Welsh was a takin' other tribes for slaves. Eventually the chieftains sent their sons to Patrick for instruction.
Well, in honor of things Irish, I'm a playin' the Chieftains and Phil Coulter. Sure wish ya'll could hear it!
Have a fine weekend....
