Hop on, hop off, hop on, hop off, etc.

I am a drinker with a writing problem. Today we went to the Guinness brewery and then, as if that were not enough we went to the Jameson Whiskey Brewery. They both gave free samples. (and purchased even more.) We got a certificate for pulling a perfect Guinness out of the barrel. I got scolded for not tipping the glass correctly.
We saw the graveyard where the inventor of the crossword puzzle was buried. The guide told us his headstone was 4 across and 3 down.

We saw an advert for a radio station. It claimed to play music for people who remember when George Michael was straight. AND for people who remember having to push "Record" and "Play" at the same time. We plan to listen to it when we get the car tomorrow.

Anyway, that's how it sounds in this B&B room. Richard is even making the P-P-P-P-P-PH sound that is in old cartoons.
We just got back from a pub called the Porter House where we ate pub food and drank all of their samples of micro-brews. And then some more... Both of the guys said, "I don't want to go to sleep yetttzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Barb is studying maps. I think I'll go back to the book on my Sony reader right now. The Help. Gigi-OUT

Indecent Bumbling Boobs

We are off the barge and back at the La-De-Da Hotel. Tomorrow the boys come. Tomorrow we move to the Egan Hotel. In two days it's B&Bs all the way. John stayed up half the night last night down-loading IRELAND GPS bidness so we won't get lost. The last time I was here I wrote a thing called, "How to make roads in Ireland" and it still stands true today. As I recall it began with -"Place two cars side by side almost touching. Add one inch. Put tar stuff down exactly this wide...." It goes on. of course.

The boat was fantastic. Food? Out of this world. Company? Wonderful. Laughter? Oh, Yeah.--- until we were weak.

Our computer comes with the guys, so there will be pictures. Meanwhile we are at the hotel Bidness center.

Barb just knocked on our neighbors door thinking it was our friends. It was an annoyed guy in a bathrobe. No telling what she interrupted.

Someone suggested we go to a store called Doors and Knockers. Someone said, "I've got your knockers right here." Don't know who...

Some impertinent little thing just opened the door wondering when I would be done so I'm out. Love!

We have no internet on the boat. Richard and John will be here Sunday with a laptop and we'll be more communicative. The cruise barge is great and the weather has been also. The food is M. O. !!!!!!!
We have been to two castles and now we are in Galway and are about to go shopping . I have taken a lot of notes and I'll write it all down here when the boys get here.
But I'll tell you right now that a girl danced for us yesterday while her da played a pennywhistle. The people are great and I hear Pink singing inthis internet cafe.

Love and kisses!
