|10:36 am - Pagan gods, rosaries, and gold coins!|
Man, that Freyr guy is a no good cheat, isn't he?
Couple finds gold, puts cash in a box, builds an altar to "Fray", prays the rosary for nine days, loses everything.
Okay, so maybe it isn't Freyr's fault. It could be that this "Fray" character is just an impostor with a similar name. Or maybe Freyr doesn't like rosaries and so he laid the smite down on the guys who came up with the plan and turned their money into newspaper.
What really gets to me, I think, is that the con artists were. . . Hispanic, probably Columbians?
Rosaries and northern European gods and Columbians? I can see A relating to B, and B possibly relating to C, and A and C certainly relate, but as a triangle of relationships, well. . . I'm sort of at a loss.

I am SO SORRY... with Mekare being sick and not being able to walk... I have been rather... busy..
I hope it didn't screw up your rite this weekend.. :( I just remembered today...
please don't hate me... :(
I managed :)
However, I could still use it for the next rite. Turns out there's no mistletoe for sale in the entire city :)
But seriously, it worked out alright :)
okay... again I apologize..
I will cut it as soon as my Hubbie gets that ladder out..
then I will send it to you...
though to be truthful I need your addie again... i seem to have lost it.. somehow..

That sounds very similar to the whole "cursed money" scam, which is frequently used on Hispanic people.
Just goes to show that greed transcends all boundaries of race, religion, etc.

I think it's like the joke where the punch line is "Throw the money in the air and what God wants, he keeps." I thinks Freyr got what he wanted.
