Home Again, Home Again ...

and late with this post!   Sorry about that, I know I said I'd announce the winner of my contest on Sunday, November 4.  Due to a bad cold, the time change, and jet lag, it was a trifecta of tired.  I seriously did not have the energy to post yesterday, which was frustrating, since I wanted to announce the winner.

So, before we go any further, I'll tell you where we visited this time.  As I mentioned, we were flying in and out of Dublin, and we traveled around seeing lots of places.  But besides Dublin, the places where we actually spent a night or two were:

1.  Kilkenny

Kilkenny Castle

2. Blarney

Rock of Cashel (near Blarney - pictures from Blarney are in my camera, 
which needs a new battery)

3.  Limerick

A couple of you guessed, "Cork," and though Blarney in is County Cork, that's not the same as Cork City.

Only Susan aka paintermom guessed one of the places correctly, saying "Galway, Limerick, and Cork."  So she wins the prize!  Susan, send me your name and snail mail address at thekittyknitterATverizonDOTnet, and I can get it ready to send to you.

Thanks to everyone who played along - most of you got close, and you all guessed places we visited on our last trip, so it was not out of the realm of possibility ...


I'll bore regale you with more tales of our trip once I am better organized.  But I would also like to remind you to 


Whether you are a Democrat


or Independent

Voting is a privilege that is one of the most important ways that we can participate in our governmental process.  Don't take it for granted.  And if you don't vote, then don't complain about the results!

I'm glad you enjoyed Ireland. I enjoyed all my time there except the "on the road" time which scared me to death!

Glad you're back, though very sorry about the cold. What gorgeous photos! I can only imagine actually being there. . .
