The Blarney Stone....

Yup, Pam Myers said said something to me about kissing the Blarney Stone. Kissing the Blarney Stone either gives you the gift of gab or eloquence ...I wonder which one she was referring to. Well...I didn't but my husband did. Here is a picture that was taken by someone at Blarney Castle...this picture was then sent to our home address which the picture came in this nice folder with Blarney Castle pictured on the front of the folde



I myself didn't kiss the Blarney Stone. Being I am an Register Nurse...think have the tendency of thinking about germs. There was no way I was going to kiss the stone when I thought of all the others before me. Also I think it was mentioned that back in the day it was used as a latrine.




Here are some more pictures of Blarney Castle in County Cork that I took/





In picture one you can see the view from the top of the castle. The next picture over is the castle in the distance. The picture below left show where the fireplace was...that is my husband in the lower corner...so the floor was gone..it was wierd I remember seeing that fireplace above us. In the other picture you can see some of the rooms that were label..note again...no floors.


In the last picture is my snowflake I tatted of Rainbow Brite HDT from Pamela Myers my good Irish friend. http://tatsakoolchallenge.blogspot.com/

My middle son kissed the stone when we were there. They do spray disinfectant between visitors. LOL! He was the one who had Blarney castle on the agenda and wanted to kiss the Blarney stone so when he then decided he might back out, I insisted he do it! I didn't want him to regret not doing the one thing he wanted to do. I have a photo somewhere - I need to organize and scrapbook those trips...badly.
