Street Musicians in Galway

Good morning…. Today’s effort will be a short, slight one, in a manner of speaking. I’m on the road again today, back to Dublin from Galway, taking a train this time, to see something other than the freeway…. I’ve included a few pictures from various spots around Galway; I have lots more to show in later blogs, but, this was what I could get ready for now…. I’ll try to get some more up in a day or so, once I’m settled back in Dublin….

For now, I’ll once again dump y’all down the page with no further ado, and be back to blather at a later date…. I’m having a great time, and blogging is now secondary in my hierarchy of important stuff to do…. So….

Shall we Pearl?….

Okay, ffolkes, that’s all you get today…. I’m off on the almost never-ending search for adequate coffee to go with the morning’s breakfast….

(Okay, short mini-rant: Finding good coffee in other countries, even those like England and Ireland, who do enjoy some good coffees, is harder than it may seem…. One must go to the coffee specialty houses, like Starbucks, or the Irish/English equivalent, to find just a decent cup of French Roast, or an espresso; the normal restaurants and public houses don’t seem to regard it as an important item…. Finding a good cup at one’s B&B is a real treat…. I’m glad the first place I stayed had a proprietor who DID know how to make coffee; she used a Vietnamese style press to make hers…. But, that’s a rarity….)

End of rant, and, end of today’s Pearl…. I’m off into the BBR for new adventures, so, see y’all in a day or two…. Have fun, ffolkes, I sure am….

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. Reblogged this on gigoid and commented:


    I’ve been tapped for babysitting today; yesterday was spent nursing a tweaked lower back, so, no fresh Pearl today. Here’s a travelogue from my last trip to Ireland, in 2015. I hope you enjoy it, though you won’t enjoy it more than I did being there… I’ll be back tomorrow, hopefully having finished the Pearl begun yesterday. Y’all have a good Sunday; I’ll be grandfathering, & am guaranteed to have fun….

  2. Hello gigoid Happy Spring Days to ya.. Hope
    You are Still Getting Out in the Big Blue Room
    And Enjoying the Photos You Bring way Back
    From September of 2015 In Ireland as i’m
    Assuming that was a Trip You Made
    When You Reached 62 shortly
    Before i met You around
    the Start of Winter
    of 2015.. hmm.. not likely
    i would have started Writing
    Open Spaces Electronically Structured
    As Novels then on to even Bigger Spaces
    Structured as ‘Bibles’ if i had not come across
    you on Sohair’s Site and i had not come across
    Sohair on Himali’s Site.. and of course if i had never
    Started Writing Poetry as inspired on the dVerse
    Poetry Trail by a Woman Blogger named Angel
    Mind Retrofit none of this may have happened
    all at for my Personal Journey to Reach my
    Personal Style of Human Potential in
    This Lifetime now.. smiles and
    after that finding out in 2016
    that my Grandfather was
    Actually Born in
    The Catholic
    Priest and smiles These
    Photos and others may be
    as Close that i ever get to that
    Homeland but i already Living in a
    Paradise Much Greater as far as
    Beauty goes but the Culture not
    as Vintage of Course as the Old World of Ireland..
    So Much Diversity Here so much to see sadly still
    So Many Closed Minds and Bodies too Yet with the
    Information Highway there is always Hope that more people
    spark to open
    their Minds and
    Hearts Bodies and really Live
    within no matter what the Outside View Looks like Now..:)
