Why I'm Wondering

I've been reading holiday flight horror stories and wonder why are we going anywhere? Answer: BUSINESS TRIP. And his half is paid for.

It'll be fun. We're prepared. I have a wad of Euros, long underwear, rainboots and an umbrella. And a cashmere sweater because I had an excuse to buy one from Land's End along with the practical things.

So we hope to drink some of this:

And see some of these:

And if I'm very brave (because I don't like things jumping out at me), we could visit this:

Or I visit the homes of some less frightening Irish authors. I had no idea there were so many from Dublin: James Joyce, George Bernard Shaw, Jonathan Swift, Oscar Wilde.

Cheers! See you soon! I have a few posts scheduled while I'm gone -- how unusually pro-active of me!

Have a wonderful time!! Flight hassles be damned, there's nothing like a good international romp to make a security check point worthwhile.

Green with envy... A dream of Prince Charmine and mine is to go to Ireland. We WILL do it, just don't know when. I know you're back now (because I'm way behind), but hope it was more fun than you imagined.
