    Not if the 2nd shop has voluptuous redheads in the back as a secondary service...

  15. I'll see your 'Knobs and Knockers', and raise you a 'Mycock's Electrical'.

    Truly.

    London, many years ago. Only time I've ever nearly rear-ended (if you will forgive the term) the car in front. Just couldn't believe the sign as I drove past it.

    Hope you stopped at the distillery when you were up by the Causeway.

    Have fun, and don't forget to come back!
    Best wishes.

  18. My favorite photo from our family trip to Ireland in 1987 was taken as I we were passing through a small town in County Clare. I simply had to stop long enough to get a picture of the combination funeral parlor/pub.

    One thing I found particularly nice were the doors. There were more beautiful wood doors than I have seen anywhere else. I thought it might be because they have to import pretty much all their wood, and their damp climate would make it worth importing wood that can stand up. Teak makes an awesome door!

I started this blog so the child I gave up for adoption could get to know me, and in turn, her children, as well as share stories for a family that lives too far away. So please keep it friendly and kid safe. Posts that are only a link or include an ad for an unknown business automatically to to SPAM..
