I'm No Saint...Patrick

Oh happy St. Patrick's day. Here are some lovely (cough, choke) crocheted scarves that I made for a fundraiser. My son is an Irish dancer. It is St.Patrick's Day. You connect the dots. I spent my last weekend at the Irish fair/Pomona Fairgrounds. Last year it hailed and rained all weekend, so this year I thought scarves would be a big seller to raise money for the dance studio. This year it was 90 degrees, sunny and hot. Good for oranges, not good for scarves. We did sell several, much to my amazement. They are fast and easy, just fill in your flag colors of choice. These could be terrific for soccer or hockey too.
About St. Patrick....His claim to fame is clearing all snakes from Ireland. There never were any snakes there to begin with. There were though, pagans. Again, you connect the dots. On St. Patrick's day I do not wear green, I do wear a blue snake drawn on my wrist in memory of the lives lost for religious tyranny.
By the way, the cheese fries (Irish Nachos) at the fair were delicious!

Southern California weather. What can you do?
I protest St. Patrick's Day by wearing no green and making fun of all the phoneys who all are maybe 1/16 Irish or less.
Those scarves look a-mazing, by the way.
