Still rambling…now in the UK

Several friends have commented on the lack of blog postings since August 29th…we do have a few to catch up on!

Suffice it to say that on September 3rd we stored the RV in Dallas and boarded a flight to Ireland via London. Tom visited his Mum in Cork and also caught up with a friend there and then on Friday we both traveled south again to spend some time with Adele’s Carrig-on-Suir friends. On the 8th we attended a Horgan wedding where we met up with all Tom’s siblings and spouses – wonderful to think that all 7 remain hale and hearty. Parents of the groom Carmel and Mike Horgan hosted a scrumptious lunch at their holiday home in Wexford on Sunday after which we returned to Dublin. Then on Monday Adele headed off solo to Galway while Tom had a mini-reunion with some of his Rugby referee friends including a 92 year old who returned to work as a Solicitor (Attorney) after lunch…an inspiration!
On Thursday, after a wonderful 10 days of Esther and Jack’s hospitality we flew to Birmingham where Jennifer met us. Now the birthday fun begins!

We’ll be back on the road again in early October with Austin and San Antonio on the itinerary before we head back to California to meet our new granddaughter Sairsha and her cousins Cian and Caleb.
