Thanks Vernon - Here is an Irish version of Donkeys Ears!

Long long ago there lived in Leighlinbridge, Carlow a troubled king. This kings name was Labhraidh Loingseach. He had a terrible secret. He had the ears of a donkey!! To hide his awful secret, he let his hair grow very long.However, he had to get his hair cut every year. To keep his donkeys ears a secret he had the poor barber killed!!

One year, a widow's son was chosen to be the unfortunate barber.The boy's mother pleaded with the king for her son's life.The widow's tears melted the king's cruel heart. The king promised to save the boy's life if he kept the secret.

After the boy had cut the king's hair, he became very ill. His mother took him to a druid. He told the boy to tell his terrible secret to an oak tree .The boy did this and immediately felt better.

At the same time the King's musician was looking for a new harp. He went out and had a tree chopped down from which he made a new harp.That night, the king asked his musician or Bard as they were called to play on his new harp. The bard started to play but the song that came out was "Labhraidh Loingseach has donkey's ears!! Labhraidh Loingseach has donkeys ears!!" Now everyone knew his secret!! However the King stayed in power as everyone was too afraid of him. The good news though, was that no more barbers were killed!

Secrets always find their own way to be heard.

Keep on keepin' on. You inspire us all.

Dear Vernon,
Thank you so much both for coming out to Bull Feeney's and also for your kind note! I am so glad - and relieved! - that your cousins enjoyed the evening. It is certainly true that we need to do all we can to dispel the notion that storytelling is boring. Yow: Heaven forfend! My own mother, who has never heard me tell and sing, has more than once cautioned me against putting people to sleep. And I, a good daughter, simply thank her for her excellent advice and do my utmost to take it. (But I do smile to myself, thinking of the fun we have).

I hope to get back up to Portland before long and will look forwards to a chat, and also, I hope, the chance to hear some of your tales.

Thanks very much for your encouragement.
sending good wishes,
Kate

PS - Whenever I read your name, I think of that wonderful quote attributed to Michaelangelo at age 80: "I am still learning." Here's to that.

Thanks Bro for kind words about my story - life has handed me some GREAT material! LOL - I lived through it , might as well use it, no?
Andrea and I are having blast ! Vernon, why not start a Maine .ning? Why should we massholes have all the fun?
and
Can you "'splain me" about where to best post a discussion like the one on changing photos? I agree, it should be somewhere obvious. Thanks again,
Norah

Vernon! Youse is not foolin' nobody! You know way more about this all the techno stuff than I do and if we lived in the same state we could light the whole damn forest on fire...to make a bad metaphor. Settling down a bit... Seroiusly,
you keep on leading and I'll keep on following you.
It was your stuff on youtube that inspired me to get my act together and buy a new computer so I could post too.
Ciao for now
