Spinning at the Persian
Tonight Ruth and I stopped at the Persian in Carndonagh for a quick pint and a spin. It was lovely and we drummed up some chat from some of the bar patrons. One kind gentleman even tried to persuade some Scottish tourists to join us. They declined. We tried to convince our new friend to join us as he was truly fascinated by it and kept on telling us about the Aran jumpers his mom made for him and his three other brothers. It was quite possible that he might have had a few too many pints to spin anyway. There is a three pint limit when you are drinking and spinning. :)
