A stitch in crime saves time….

Day the next 013

Sunset over the Irish Sea, 2013

Good morning…. Well, jet lag, it seems, is NOT stronger than insomnia…. Though not entirely sure if I’m still suffering from it, I am, nonetheless, up again at 0300. Since I did sleep six hours, that should be sufficient for the day….. If not, well, naps are a good thing….

That’s all you get for today, ffolkes. I don’t have a lot of time for blather, not if you want Art…. I’ve a couple or three pix, of the B&B where I’m staying right now, a lovely house, typically European in its age and decor…. The proprietors are, of course, nice ffolkes (they are automatically accorded status as ffolkes, as they provide me with a service I enjoy…), and have been very helpful in giving information.

So, I’m going to try to get the pix processed now, then I’ll be busy until who knows when, taking more pictures, and seeing the sights…. At this point, I don’t know when the next post may get put up, so, keep checking back for new pix and comments…. I’ll try to post in a day or three…. Y’all have fun out there, and stay alert…

Shall we Pearl?….

    There you go…. My lodgings for the first three nights in Eireann…. which, as y’all may know, is Gaelic for Ireland…. See y’all in a few days, ffolkes, if not before…. The BBR is pretty interesting right now, offering a lot to keep me occupied away from the computer…. But, to quote the Arnold, I’ll be back….

Y’all take care out there,
and May the Metaphorse be with you;
Blessed Be, dearest Carole, Mark,Theresa, & Richy
and everyone else, too…

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Which is Why….

Sometimes I sits and thinks,
   and sometimes,
I just sits.

  1. Good morning sir Ned, your digs look comfy, I was interested by your opening gambit from Robert Frost. My Mum , when she was angry or frustrated by any of us children (when we were young and awkward) she would sigh and then say ‘ Go to hell your own way’ 🙂 it brought back memories. Have a lovely day. I would recommend the hop on hop off tour bus, the one with a guide is brilliant the other just has head phones!! Be safe xxxx

  2. Took me time to figure out that it’s derived from ‘a stitch in time saves nine’. My English is getting rusty. Thank you for jogging this memory.
    Is that a public dining room? There’s a lot of tables and seats there.

  3. Reblogged this on gigoid and commented:


    A fresh Pearl is nearly complete, so, with a bit of luck, it should go up tomorrow. To get us there without any stress, here is a travelogue from my second trip to Ireland, spent with “boots on the ground:, so to speak. I hope you enjoy it nearly as much as I did posting it from the Emerald Isle…. See y’all soon, fer sure….
