Castles in Ireland

When I went Back to Sligo,

my Cousin drove me up
the coast road about 1/2 mile
to Classie Bawn castle.
Lord Mt. Battens Castle.
From Grannies house you take a left and drive a coast road, very isolated,
then you see this impressive home of Lord Mt Battens. Here's the road.

Donegal castle.
Then we drove to Donegal
for lunch.

Here is
Roscommon Castle

Ashford Castle
County Mayo

Blarney Castle

In Sligo
Clavroc castle

Roche Castle
The woman who built it
tossed her Hubby
out the window.

Crom Castle
west Ireland

I think maybe
this baby is still

Back in Sligo,
I met the Lady
at the Lissadell house
on my visit. The drive way
had forget me not 's everywhere.
I have some here in Maine
and think of that day a lot.

Hoping you all get a chance
to visit North west Ireland
 the land of Yeats, Poetry.
My Cousins Mother's
 Mother is buried next to Yeats.

Those Big Eyes are IN


ARE REALLY IN, TODAY. check this out.

Just send her to a makeup artist,

start a  a political campaign..
 BIG Eyes are really in.
Majestic 12 is the purported code name of a
 Secret committee of scientists.

Majestic-12 +
Missile or UFO Buzzes 
Continental Airlines Flight
On May 29th, 2009, a mysterious object displayed just how much of
a 'threat' UFOs can be; 
alien spacecraft or not.
Check this blog out, He has everything.
Listen up  you guys...

Maybe they have invaded Congress?
The Answer is ALIENS Tee Hee  or Ha Ha

NO Really?

You have to laugh, it's good for you.
I just watched the State of the Union Speech.
President Obama is such a wonderful speaker. I was so upset
at the Republicans and how rude, with snickering like High school
kids.  The ugly faces, He is my President and I truly now realize
that the Republican party is too busy hating to govern this country.
What shame I have that America comes across on TV like this.
Very small minded and nasty republicans.

IF I hit the lottery.
I should be so lucky.
 This I'd get for a
 green house. No pool.

Things, material stuff, they only fill you for the moment. They are not so important anymore. God teaches us in strange ways.

This reminds me of my
 house in Florida, we had a pool.
My Daughter swam every day
 after school. She made the swim
 team in Miami Beach.

 If I hit the lotto,
Money for a nice ice skating ring
in downtown with a Gazebo for music. Then the Kids could skate for free.
It would be a nice sight driving through the town.
The Summer the school band could play at night and people could dance.
Now that is money well spent.

Thinking of all I lost in the fire during Hurricane Andrew.
I had an Antique shop and had closed it and everything was in the house
when it burnt down. Nothing was left.
The baby grand was gone and just an iron harp
lay in the ashes. My whole insides just left my body. I was in shock.
Look on the bright side I had taken my Mother to a lady who would
care for her for 5 days, left for Camden Maine to go fishing.
That morning at 5 AM we got a call from Ft. Lauderdale,
the house caught fire from an electric wire off the power pole.
God was there, I had canceled the trip because the hurricane
was coming, then the news said it wouldn't hit us. We would never
have gotten out of the house. Mom had Alzheimer's and I had
dead bolts on the doors.  Tomorrow the Sun will rise and all
will be in the past. Just get busy surviving.
Love to you all and remember, don't sweat the small stuff.
My Mom used to say, "I cried because I had no shoes, until
I met the man with no feet." Think about that.
