Wearin' o' the Green
"Just flew (Google Earth) to Burlington, VT - so nice and green"!
Oh, you want to see green? Vermont doesn't even come close to green. Of course we are the "Green Mountain State" but I've seen photos from and TV shows shot in Ireland and England and holy moly - they've got more green then they know what to do with! Vermont doesn't even know what green is, lemme tell ya.
Green is actually my favorite color, and it's the subject of an old Irish song called "The Orange and the Green", to the tune of blind Irish harper Turlough O'Carolan's "Rising of the Moon"
"Oh it is the biggest mix-up, that ye have ever seen.
Me Father he was orange and me mother she was green".
Then of course there's "Fiddler's Green":
As I walked by the dock-sdie one evening so fare,
To view the salt-water and take in the salt air,
I spied an' ol fisherman singin' a song: He said "take me away boys me time is not long".
Chorus: Wrap me up in my oilskins and blankets,
No more on the docks I'll be seen.
Just tell me ol' shipmates Im takin' a trip, mates
And I'll see ye someday on Fiddler's Green.
Green is a good color, isn't it?
In fact I just opened a bag of peanut
MnM's and the first two candies on top were green.....I am convinced that this is a sign that I must get myself to Ireland. (Aaron, you remember my theory that God has a sweet tooth, right?)....so God must be calling me back to Ireland: my ancestral homeland!
And also....skin flutes and phallic cymbals? Oh dear...I'm afraid I've led the guestbook down an ugly path.
