Just home from the Northeast Louisiana Celtic Festival. Had a great time! It was my first year to go and now I know what to expect (and how to better prepare for next year.) The vendors were exceptionally nice - bought a book (of course) signed by the author...
and homemade soap...check out their Etsy shop - Pastry Moon. My scent of choice was Blooms - not too floral, but just sweet enough.
Saw my first highland cow.
And now, for the piece de resistance (sorry, can't add the emphasis marks) I present you with: Men in Kilts!
Truthfully, the front view was better than the back, but considering they were part of a law inforcement group, I didn't feel comfortable asking for the full monty. There were several groups represented - some with Highland affiliations and others just hanging out in kilts. Did see some of the Red River Pipes and Drums - but didn't get the full performance. Oh, well, maybe next year. My heart probably couldn't take any more excitement - full Highland regalia AND bagpipes? Dreamy!
Capped the day off at Books a Million. Asked for recommendations, but didn't get them in time. Left with two titles by Jon Krakauer. I read Into the Wild and loved it. I picked up Into Thin Air and Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman. They ought to provide some food for thought. And, that is how a Saturday in October should be spent!
