Well, its here. The annual Chicago Celtic Fest. My family and I (which consist of my two sons and I) go to this every year. It is one of our little traditions that we refuse to give up for anything or anyone. Being of Scotch Irish descent, its rare that we do get a chance to celebrate that part of our heritage. So today I am going to take a break from trying to solve the problems of the world and kick back and do my best to have one hell of a great time with my kids. Hope you find the time and the excuse to do the same with your family this weekend. If Hurricane Katrina has taught us nothing else, it is that tomorrow is promised to no one. Love those around you. Forgive those who have hurt you. Give more than is comfortable. Care at the risk of having your heart broken. Change your mind. Admit you were wrong. Try something new. Get out of your rut. And while you're doing it, say a prayer for Angevoix and hers, and I'll say one for you and yours.
How about it?

That picture has me very, very confused. I'm in a delicate condition, Angevoix - what does it all MEAN?!

Absolutely nothing, MCM... I was trying not to think to hard, or really at all. As a result I was nearly swept off my feet by a drunken scotsman selling kilts... Oh well... There's always next year...

You mean next year it won't be "almost"? Well, that should certainly be an interesting post!

I agree with hipchickmamma! Also, my mom used to say those exact words: tomorrow is promised to no one. Ahhh, the Celts. The Irish saved civilization, you know. Have you read that book? I haven't run into any drunken Scotsmen lately but am happy to live vicariously through you!

I have the book Amy, but as with so many others that I own, I haven't gotten through it yet. Yes the Scotsman was quite a charmer... a head of dark curly hair and a boyish smile to match...
