Dublin July 27, 2006

We took a bus tour of Dublin, went to St. Patrick's Cathedral where the guide got in an argument with several about Protestants (which she called Lutherans).  Then we went to Dublin castle and had a tour. The bus left us off at Nassau st. where we had lunch and went shopping before heading back to Trinity Capitol Hotel to do some packing.

That evening we headed out to Ryan's Pub where we had a wonderful dinner with Irish coffee, whiskey sampling and listening to Bianca and ??? who had a Pub Crawl CD.

Our flight left the next day 10:45 AM!  Dublin airport was a mess!  It was very disorganized.  After we went through customs, we were trapped in a small waiting room which I recall was very difficult for handicapped to get to down steps. There were no restrooms, food or drink.  Our flight was delayed another  hour (we were fortunate that our connecting flight home was also delayed)  It was a great trip other than getting there and coming home!

Between Two Worlds

Most of my life, I've considered it fortunate that I was just ahead of the Baby-boom. Generally, the Baby-boomers were born between 1946 and 1964 after the fathers returned from World War II. It was a huge population explosion that has reverberated through American society.

This blog will be part history, part memories, part reflections of a retired teacher, but active "Senior". I have always felt like I straddled two generations forming a bridge. Sometimes I think like a baby-boomer, but sometimes I'm locked into my parents' Depression era thinking. I'm a dichotomy of two eras. But, I'm always ready to try something new---so here I am dipping my toes in the water of Blogworld.
