The bride is going to Ireland for two weeks to see family and have a good time. The wife has been there many times since being a little girl when she first went to see the Galway farm with her parents.

I have been to Ireland twice and did a honeymoon there with a teenage girl in May of 1973. I was there with her in 1987.

2017? I was invited to go with the wife's family and friends. I thought that the better deal at my age was to stay home alone with some good cats, a bankroll, a reliable automobile, no bills due, beer and some horse racing.

That lake doesn't exist but four girls are making this trip with a lot of cash. Their ages run from 63 to 82.

The young "hottie" is my teen bride. She'll be doing the driving on the wrong side of the road.

Well, I'm a bachelor again for two weeks. The trip to JFK and back last night through heavy downpours and thunderboomers was a horror and the flight was delayed but it looks like everybody made out OK.

Thanks, Don. I travel to the bathroom in the middle of the night now with a guide cat for my travelling when the lights are out.
