I hope I'm not the only one that thought that the Blarney Stone was a big rock like this.
Since I was little (which was a very long time ago) I have been fascinated with Ireland and wanted to go. You would think that being so infatuated by Ireland I would have known a little more about it. For example, did you know that to kiss the Blarney Stone you have to be upside down!
I didn't know that until my daughter went to Ireland (without me!) and came back with pictures of her kissing the Blarney Stone.
Okay, I can do the upside down part, but the part about having to lay on your back while desperately grasping onto two iron rails and lowering yourself until your head is even with the stone while someone holds onto you as you gaze at the ground hundreds of feet below, makes me a little nervous. No a lot nervous!
Here is my daughter and her husband kissing the Blarney Stone.
Why do people kiss the Blarney Stone?
Here are a couple of pictures I found online. This one is crazy!
You'll have to let me know... Would you, or have you kissed the Blarney Stone?
Below are just a few pictures my daughter and son inlaw took in Ireland.
This one makes me laugh. What was she doing, where did she land and how did she not break something? Crazy girl!
