Today, I arrived at the Celtic Festival about 11:00 a.m. I took thirty books and signed and sold 28 of them. As is typical of signings, I met so many really cool people. Thanks to my friend Stuart, I also have some peat I can show kids when I do my Scots-Irish programs. He has to be one of the strongest (and generous) men I’ve ever met. He’s huge in size, and capable of throwing cabers (weighing 125 pounds or more), stones (twenty pound plus for men), hammers (16-22 pounds for men), or trees even, for great distances.

In all, it was a great day. I’ve got a small problem though: I’ve sold all my books I had in stock and so if Pelican can’t get them to me quick enough, I’ll have to drive to New Orleans and pick some more up Tuesday. I guess that’s a good problem to have. More later.
