Without argument, the coolest weapon to ever grace the big screen.
No, I do not have one that will actually cut. I wish. Dang it! But, I do have one that looks and sounds like the real deal.
And then, Christmas Eve arrived. It is a well documented fact that Christmas Eve is MY favorite night of the year. Why?
Simple. Christmas Eve mass in Shattuck. Then, wicked, good food & drink at John Q & Deborah Ann’s house. Family, including some uncles taking part in the festivities.
For most years, our parents try to get all 3 sons the same present. All 3 of us would be happy with a can of blue diamond smoked almonds (aaa-monds or aLLmonds) IDK Does it matter? I love those things.
This year, all 3 boys got a damn stick. Seriously, a stick. They got us a Shillelagh. Yeah. Search the spelling. I dare you. Try—-Irish beating stick. Wikipedia will bring up “Shillelagh”. This year wasn’t up to par as 1/3 of us was dealing with the rona crap. We couldn’t get all of us together.
Our parents got the 3 Kelln boys a perfect gift. What u say? Irish Light Saber. Mom and Dad got them from Ireland. Every time, I walk past this thing, I have to grab it and walk through the house with it. It fits… Perfect. Now, even the lesser brothers have a proper Irish Light Saber.
Since you obviously have spare time, read up on how a shillelagh is made and their purpose.
Have a good one and a better tomorrow.
