Far and away...


Well I am gearing up for my voyage to Ireland with my Dad on Tuesday..except for this damn cold I caught from Tom, I can barely stand myself I'm so excited.Imagine..me...in the land of wool and Guiness...sounds like a slice of heaven don't it? I think one of the biggest thrills is making it happen with my Dad...for him to finally go to the country he's been hearing about his whole life from all of those relatives with the soft Irish lilt in their voices, must be overwhelming...but I know he will feel right at home and fit in just right with his story telling ability and great sense of humor...Of course I will miss Griffin on all of those wonderful walks we will do and Toms broad smile in the pubs enjoying a pint...but alas we will toast all of those who can't be with us and will return with many stories to tell....until next time...
