Who is Paddy Carr?
It appears that we have more to Sir Bowie's history lesson within our own ranks. Patrick "Paddy" Carr, one of the English Colonist killed in Boston for throwing a snowball at British Regulars (See illustration in previous post), has family roots all the way down to our Honorary Founding Father, Sir Dayvd of Oxfordshire. You see, Sir Dayvd is actually known across the pond as David Carr. Here's his inspiring response to yesterday's post:
"Well that pretty much says it all. Paddy Carr survives the hazardous journey across 3000 miles of ocean only to get shot for throwing a snowball. He'd been more than likely been drinking that 27% proof stuff, and was having a good night out! Still, I'll raise a drink to my old ancestor and praise him for keeping up the family tradition of starting a revolution wherever we go. As the saying goes:
Q. Mr. Carr, what are you rebelling against?
A. Whadya got?
Anyway, let's hope I find plenty of action Stateside next week on my first visit to the colonies this year."
I have informed Sir Dayvd that in case of snow in New York he should refrain from throwing snowballs, unless he wears a red coat. Sir Dayvd is also planning on spreading the cheer, culture and coasters of the Knights of Moleskine, Spirit and Ale as he reconquers Manhattan.
Cheerio & Balls of Snow!
Sir Hook of Warrick
