Hope everyone had a wonderful time!
Thanks, DNA. And may the same blessings be with you and yours.

When I looked at the words at first, I thought it was something similar to your signature "Grondo grondo to all zarking happy froods" and had a good chuckle, but then I took a closer look at it, noted the lettering order, and Gaelic immediately jumped out at me as its origin. Not that I speak Gaelic, even though by descent, I am German/Irish. I've always had a bit of linguist in me...not necessarily in understanding lots of languages, but simply by being able to visibly or audibly identify them because of phrases, or, as stated before phonetic or letter placement, especially if written out in English characters. I know that Gaelic has its own character set.
