Subject: RE: Help: Translation needed: 'Can y melinydd'
LOL! I hadn't thought of the "swine - my wife" problem! Reminds me of a song we used to use in 'folk services' in the 60s about the Wedding Feast of Canna (Cana?) "I cannot come to the banquet, don't bother me now, I have married a wife, I have bought me a cow" except someone in the choir got it mixed up - "bought me a wife, I have married a cow" and DO YOU THINK we could get it out of our heads after that??? We even slipped in performances! Well - it was one way of finding out if the congregation were paying attention.

I'm stumped on the last line so I'll give m'self a wee rest and come back fresh.
