First a history lesson (pulls on Aviator horn rimmed shades): St David is the patron saint of Wales and his feast day is March 1st, the date of his death. Seems he was the main man for the Welsh when having to deal with those bothersome Normans. He could make the earth rise and scare the tunics off them! And do you know at one time Englishmen taunted the Welsh with gingerbread in shape of Welshman riding a goat. Why a goat, I don’t know. Not the story here.
Well, look who stopped by Command Central to celebrate this special day (and show his solidarity) with us! Cwrw* and deep bowls of creamy Potatoe-Leek soup were on hand for Jeff to enjoy.
A few regulars at “J Perry’s Home of the World Famous Welsh Flag and Wine Bar” started the party early for St Davey this past Friday.
Leaving, Our Hero sighed with relief that we didn’t make him shovel snow like last year! (This one is for Helmut83 )
Thys ys phwntasthyc! Happy St. David's day for our Welsh friends on this forum (and for you as well, BSJ ... a bit of you is Welsh if not by birth at least by wine adoption)!
Well, it even looks as if the Lord Dame himself is feeling in the mood to celebrate this day! Just look with how much tenderness he is holding that dragon, it even looks as if he's going to give him a drink of whatever that bottle contains. He sure feels better there celebrating St. David's than outside shoveling snow (a photo of you doing that would be the icing on the cake, BSJ! ).
Also, I'm glad to see that we aren't the only ones BSJ terrorizes on a daily basis ("Beware of wife" lol )!
Well, I must say the US gang is celebrating St David's Day much better than anyone I know. Even my French teacher (who is French) had a daffodil on this morning and the only other person in the class wearing one was an American *facepalm* I don't blame Damey for hot-footing it over to yours BSJ for the proper experience.
He's looking gorgeous as usual, I can tell you've been treating him well.
(I'll be wanting him back when you've finished with him though, I'm not sure I can allow such abandonment without some kind of punishment )
LOVE that dragon, saw it on the news earlier, it could claw its way up just about anywhere though, be careful not to wave your cwrw or welsh cakes around too much, that sort of snap is irresistible to those scaly critters......
Edit: Pleased to see the younger generation is a) being introduced to J Perry's... as early as possible b) being encouraged to celebrate their Welsh-ness, however tenuous
Also pleased to see the older generation joining in, nice work Mr K
