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.

    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….
