This morning I brought Taidgh up at breakfast. I do that. I talk about my IUOMA friends, bring them into our life. My family have some pet names, even. I asked about Taidgh's name. Patrick knows a lot about a lot so I expected a satisfactory answer, but he knew nothing. Because I hate not knowing, I consulted Wikipedia:
The commonly accepted meaning of Tadhg is "poet" or "storyteller". An alternative derivation from the Celtic *tazg(j)o-, meaning "badger", has also been proposed.
Well Taidigh is certainly a delightful mailartist
but he is also a poet:
As well as all those goodies, Taidgh wrote me a note. He tells me that he's been busy and is finishing off envelopes so he can clear the decks for other new projects - a 'myths and legends' project! (Note how, true to his name, Taidgh is also a storyteller) and he teases me with: ' I'd love to make you a buoki (boekie, little book?). He asks if I'd mind a first attempt... No TAIDGH I'd be honoured and delighted. You have a wonderful day too, Taidgh, and thank you, they brightened my thawing Saturday.
