A Day at the Fair
Well actually they called it a festival, but "A Day at the Festival" just doesn't have the same ring to it. Another North Texas Irish Festival has come to a close. I'm already looking forward to next year. I tried to get a couple of pictures, but no matter what I did with the EV, flash, etc. I just couldn't get the indoor pictures to come out. I could have taken another picture of the sword guys but why - I have two from last year. So I took this picture of the bagpipers. Yeah, bagpipers - what can I say?
We ate too much, walked too much (yes too much, when your feet hurt and your knees ache - then it's too much). Beverly (that would be Bebo) had a Guiness for you Susan - I hope you enjoyed it. Saw Aefa Clancy and Robbie O'Connell sing - had to, those are two of my ancestor names. Aefa is the daughter of Bobby Clancy of The Clancy Brothers, a great Irish group that I love. Heard Eileen Ivers, saw Irish dancing, and ogled quite a few men in kilts. Bebo even got knocked over by an Irish Wolfhound. Yes, she got knocked over by a dog. She's a little sore, but nothing serious. Anyway, I'm off to bed now.
