Thanks for beautiful thought of walking through the woods to a dinner party!! No heels, I gather, hehe.
My husband had his accident years before we got together. He was only aged 20 and I would have been 14. He was older than I.
I was smart for my age. We got along great. He was the brother of my sister's husband. Easy to meet up !! Family gatherings, weddings....
Thanks for the remembrance of Denis!
I have been to Ireland three times. Once as a 13, spent 5 weeks there with my Mom's people in Galway. Had a blast. It was in 1974, my mom's relatives did not have electricity nor running water. So, for 5 weeks I washed my hair in the clear stream and dried it in the wind. Great! Bathroom situation, well, that did not exist, so I was glad I was a kid! My older sister, in her mid 20's hated it.
I am glad I experienced that life in my lifetime. It makes you appreciate what we have in the US. Other parts of Ireland had electric and running water but my Mom's family did not want it. So...? have no idea why?
Glad you sent a message. As for what I have done in my life, it only has been medical jobs. Now, I took a break and living a happy life taking care of fancy chicken breeds. I am a widow with two college aged boys. I would be happier if my husband did not pass away but...he did so.. He was in the Air Force, had an accident, was paralyzed, developed hep C from transfusions in the Air Force for his broken back. He passed away after a horribly gone wrong liver transplant. If I was a millionaire he would have gotten a better liver..but at the time with two small kids, everything just went bad. That's life.
