The Ould Sod Beckons
Tomorrow will be my last day on the High Plains for a couple of weeks. I'll be heading to County Kerry for an early fall sojourn.
For almost two decades now I have been taking small groups to Ireland for a 'cultural immersion' experience in the Irish-speaking regions (gaeltachts) of the west coast country, and the offshore islands. I've taken a break for a couple of years while I got myself settled out here and now I'm ready to resume my annual trips. I'm looking forward to seeing my friends there, and being in the country again, but I will also very much miss my 'little house on the prairie' and everything around it. The hardest part will be dropping my dawgz off to the neighbor who is going to keep them for me.
If time allows I'll try to post a couple of times from there.
