7 January - St. Distaff's Day

Weather - the weather today indicates the weather of July.


Happy, healthy, joyous, blessed, prosperous, whatever-floats-yer-boat New Year!

Once again, the women celebrate Saint Distaff's day by going back to work.  The men have a few more days of vacation before Plough Monday.

So, a good day to resume our labors... like blogging... and researching the history of the parish... and genealogy... and, oh yes, earning a living, however meager. (It is so cold here in the Smallest State, that the Widow would much rather hibernate for another two or even three months.)

Google won't let me download images, so you'll just have to imagine a woman with a distaff here.
