West Cork

Thank you for all your good wishes for our holidays. We had a lovely time. West Cork is so very beautiful and the first two thirds of the week were sunny. Elby's cousin has rebuilt a beautiful house set in 50 acres running down to the sea. He has a vegetable garden I covet in the extreme and I spent a little time digging, just for the sheer pleasure of it. We had luscious Guinness and yummy beef and a bath next to a real fire...wow. On the last night we had a bottle of Penfolds 407, followed by a Paulliac, a St Emillion Grand Cru and a bottle of Grange. I had a Montecristo No.2 Cigar. No hangover at all.

Pig had a grand time chasing rabbits and our host's mutant corgi/sheepdogs.

Very few photos got taken. Too busy gazing at all the beauty. I did take this one of bluebells


and this one of a grave stone next to that of my niece in Bantry, because I liked his name.


I would love to move there. No cctv. No CSO's.

Damien McBride




I can't believe this man is only 33. He looks 53. Why would the Righteous McBRuin have a total booze hound for advice?

Youtube Video of the day, for Buster

Pig is half patterdale terrier and half boarder [shouldn't this be 'border'? Shouldn't you sign out? Calfy, snogs] collie,

Here is a video of a patterdale in the USA which Pig dedicates to Buster.
