Well Amigos, across the Pond in Ireland today the votes are being counted and it’s all over but the pints in the pubs – the Irish are the first country to vote Yes in a popular national referendum to make it legal for same-sex couples to marry which means all eyes at Casa de Canterbury are smiling!
I heard the old woman Slow telling Pretty this morning she was sure her ancestors on the Morris side were from Ireland and Pretty said that was news to her and why hadn’t she ever mentioned that fact before…she had remembered Slow saying they were from Wales – not Ireland, at which point Slow huffed and puffed and said well they had been in the vicinity anyway. That’s so like Slow – she likes to take credit for everything.
The Red Man sends Paw Snaps and Twirls to all his Irish Sports fans in cyberspace and awards them the Royal Order of the Pawmetto for voting to take their place on the right side of history for equal rights for everyone including the gays!
The Red Man must have kissed the Blarney Stone in a prior life because he has had the gift of gab forever – he would kiss it again today if he could. That’s how happy he is!
Party hearty, LGBTers and your Amigos wherever you are this weekend and celebrate the victories you’ve earned.
Get me outta here Percy…I have to go ask the interweb if Chief Justice Roberts is a wee bit Irish…now that would be lucky.
I am thrilled at the news! Yet I remain sad that in the U.S., that it’s still a fight. I will never understand why people argue and and get riled up over something that is ultimately none of their business. There are real threats in this country, love is a good thing.
Yes, thanks so much Robin a/k/a plgcm…I have spent a lifetime of wondering about just that question…I have decided some people have a problem discerning what is their business and what is not. Sometimes it must be easier to concentrate on somebody else’s business. I also remain sad about this. 😦

“slowly” it gets better and better. Love from across the pond
Yes…it is slow…but it does come…love back to you from The Red Man and his pack at Casa de Canterbury
