Joe's thoughts about Ireland

"If ever asked 'what driving is like in Ireland?', tell them after driving two days I came to the Cliffs of Moher (in the rain).  A decision had to be made - jump from the cliffs, or drive back to Dublin on the other coast. The attendant on duty had me by the arm before I could get over the rock fence.  Good thing thought, Mary probably would have sold my guitars for about half what they are worth.  Gotta learn how to play the Irish whistle which I bought.  Love makes you do 'strange' things!"

Note Joe wrote in my travel journal the morning after the trip to the Cliffs.

WOw when you learn how to play the Irish whistle do an audio entry of that. Glad you did not jump. I take it the driving is worse than in Lexington and lousiville by that remark LOL Lori

It takes a brave, brave man to drive in Ireland - at least that's what my Army Ranger friend told me, after he let his wife do all the driving in Great Britain.

Wow, and I thought driving in Texas was bad! I've never considered jumping off a cliff (even if we HAD one to jump from), but I HAVE thought about turning off the air-conditioning in my truck and perishing quietly among the buzzards.....Jon

I've heard soldiers say its difficult driving in Ireland, then again they were probably under attack at least part of the time...
