Just had to mention this. We have a wonderful, funny, servant friend who has 4 girls. She told them she was going to the church last Sat. for the hanging of the greens. They asked her what that was and her husband put his finger to throat and made a cutting sign across his neck. His girls were nervous all week about their mother going to this hanging.
And they had good reason to be nervous. There were plenty of hangings going on, and the greens were not happy about it. But the executioners were, and it all turned out very pretty.
thanks for reading,
