Mancat Monday

Well, it’s Monday again!  I’m going to report on our weekend.  Saturday we did nothing at all but lie around.  It was nice to do nothing and snuggle with mama while we did it.

Mama was at IrishFest all day yesterday.  She had her corned beef sandwich and Irish coffee, and had a good time listening to the music and watching the dancers.  Here’s a new group at the festival, called Kintra:

Bagpipe rock, anyone?

They had dancers and even some female bagpipers!  They had everyone rockin’!

There was Celtic Canine demonstrations, and mama loved on these huge woofies:

Irish Wolfhounds

There were Setters and various kinds of terriers there, too.  Agilities went on all day.

Then there was the main reason to go to Irish Fest–the Trinity Irish Dancers!

Halfway through the festival is a parade, with more traditional bagpipers.

The festival isn’t just about music and food, though.  There’s the cultural village which showcases all the contributions that Ireland has made to society.  This year there was a exhibit of “The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe” where you could actually walk through the wardrobe and into Narnia.  There are also genealogists that can help you trace your family.

And here’s mama near the end of her day there–hot but satisfied!

When mama got home she took a cold shower and we had a long nap together.  She still has fiddles playing in her head!
