No Humour When There Is A Cure!

May your Blessings out number
The Shamrocks that grow
And may Trouble avoid you
Wherever you go!
-Irish Blessing


Hollys Horrorland Challenge  was to create something RED for this Green Day, celebration.  My
extensive reading lately has awaken new awareness toward many myths.  ( oh, and the boring radio channel I suffer through each morning at 6:30am )

Oh the blarney ....St. Patrick was welsh, ship wreaked and taken ( rescued?) to Ireland at 16, then we may? assume! ( yes I know)  who got ahold of his future.  Grown and bound to duty, chased those disobiediant snakes ( pagans) out of Ireland. 

Cheers! better than burning them at the stake!

                                 What do you get
                                 When you cross
                                 Poison Ivy 
                          With a Four Leaf Clover?
                        A Rash Of Good Luck!!!

  1. That wonderfully red hair and the snake around her waist are purrrfect!

    Love the Irish saying. Great to add to this challenge. I, too, was surprised by what I found while reading about the Saint. So many different myths--and reasons behind the lack of snakes. But we already know this, mythology is a beautiful, bottomless pit that keeps on giving because we add our bits to it.

    May you, too, get "A Rash Of Good Luck" today!

  5. I too have always been baffled by St Patrick's day, and how many people STILL point out that there are no snakes in Ireland lol
    And did you know that archaeological evidence shows there was a huge community thriving on the west coast of Ireland in the iron/bronze age? Wonder if they were the "serpents" he drove out? *scratching at my rash* :D XXX
