We Must Have Cream for Sunday

Long before I finally got to visit Ireland last August, I wanted desperately to go. This desire found its way into several stories, including today’s RieTales story, “We Must Have Cream for Sunday.” That explains the setting, but not the content.

I love mining little bits of trivia for ideas. I wrote a song based on something I saw on the internet about Queen Elizabeth I and the bards of Ireland.  (This isn’t the exact thing I saw, but it is interesting and much more detailed.) Soul of a Harper is still my favorite song I’ve written.

A few years later, I had a calendar with a bit of trivia every day. One of the pages had an Irish legend I’d never heard before. I wish I had kept the exact piece of paper, but I didn’t. I wrote a story about it instead. 🙂 Again, I can’t find the precise legend online, but it is related to this one. Instead of butter, it was cream that was made in this highly unusual fashion…
