Yes, Dino48,

Children have a tendency to keep us on our toes. My wee one Loves  curved twigs and Mamo's { Granny in Irish } fashion beads.
She is either gonna be a water diviner or a fashion icon big_smile.
I haven't heard of UYK in a long while. I guess his kids keep him occupied also.. We did have some great banter here for so long on Chordie.. It surely kept me going through some very rough times. I would be in touch with some of the guys and gals on  { dare i mention F B ! They { Chordie have a link there also.}.

Be kind to you and yours sir. Life passes in the blink of an eye.. I just linked this on Face craic  [ as we call it }. So i shall share with you also.
I love this lady Mary Gaulthier " Sings and writes the best songs. She is also magic in live concerts. I have had the pleasure..
Oiche Mhaith ! { goodnight }


Thank you Dino48.

I have a wee grand daughter 18 months old now. A pure pleasure and such a joy in my life. I decided to take time out,
to  mind her, which i do full time most of a week. Evenings i usually spend with family on face Book. Its about all the energy i have left at the end of a day.. I am not complaining though, i love the bones of this wee doll.

I am sure at some stage i will get back here. Its all about time and how to share it at the moment.. Not to mention " Age" hahahaha.

I went to see this guy last night live here in Dublin Ireland. . He is older like us all but, was still  soooooo wonderful... I love the man.

  Warm hugs to you Dino48.

SouthPaw, you have the best mischievous facial expression . i've ever seen on any musician in the video.. Believe me when i say," i've seen a lot" ! No wonder you're wee men are so happy and at one with themselves. What a gift to give to you're wee ones.

Love and light as always to you.. I will listen and comment to the rest of your Videos tomorrow.. I really should be in my leaba { Bed } now. There ya go sir, keeping Old Doll up late.  big_smile

Oiche Mhaith from the Emerald isle.


I have just finished my usual seasonal flowers. Late this evening as, we had a family funeral today. I went to Facebook to wish you a Happy Birthday, which led me here to read about this awful happening..In that split second in time, you and yours became part of this  sad horrific story unfolding before your eyes..  Please know this Pix. You gave that young girl  who died, the treasure of compassion and comforting words in her last seconds of life.The fact that she didn't survive will never alter your care and attention to her when she needed it.

Use the same care and attention now for you, your beautiful wife and family. Lord knows you all need some gentle time after such an ordeal.

As for the man cleaning the gun ! His path in life has forever changed also. His mind and spirit, now full of dark shadows because of one single mistake. Mistakes can happen for us all... For that man "That's one heavy burden to bear for the rest of ones life..

I could ask the question, " Why would any person need such a powerful gun ? ".. I have a childhood friend who was a painter and decorator. He was working on an old house many years ago now as a young man. He found a old gun in a  press,  pointed it at his workmates, then pulled the trigger. He blew the head off his workmate.. He would have had no idea of guns or ammunition. His workmate died instantly. My friend although still alive, has lived such a tormented life.. There are no winners were guns are concerned, just death.
I hope with time the images you all captured today can be erased.
My love, hugs, and deepest sympathy to all concerned.

Old Doll.

Thank you so much to all.

My apologies for only getting back to this item now. I've been busy.

When my son heard this piece it was played on a resonator. I am assured by him, it would be most welcome
played on any type of guitar.

He has tried to locate same on the web with no Joy. Thank you Russell for your attention to same. I, we, appreciate your time. It would be most welcome on 6 string..

Dino 48, I have had some work done to my eyes. But i need more surgery in January 2012..
Papaguitar,  Thank you ...I miss you all, but i also have a beautiful new grand daughter to take up what spare time i'm left with lol..

She " Mia " is such a great joy to me. I love shopping for her, with her,and spending quality time whenever i can with her..At the moment shes my greatest joy in life..

My warmest wishes to you all.


Old Doll.

Failte to all my Chordie friends..

My son has asked  "can anyone here record this piece for him..


Looking for a favour.   Could you ask on Chordie is there anyone who could play and record this piece on a resonator guitar, to do a cover of this  link ?


They played it on a resonator guitar at the wedding last week as the bride walked down the isle with her Dad.  It was superb!

Its a long shot, but  i, and he, would greatly appreciate same.

Hugs to all from the Emerald isle.

Sincere sympathy for your loss Zurf.

I also lost a dear friend 3 weeks ago. He " Ken" never smoked or ever touched alcohol. Never said a bad word about anyone in his young life.
I have witnessed a lot of deaths { friends and family } over the last 5 years. I cannot explain why Ken's death has left such sadness
in my heart, with the  question " WHY Ken Lord ".

Indeed Bolleauxp.  Sure isn't that the truth ! Your  still warm and above the ground still. Your sons are so right. lol

I do believe we go through stages of change with ageing. Having reared my Sons investing time and energy { with pleasure i may add } i'd forgotten how to just be me ! Going through the emotional stuff of letting go was very difficult for me. Now i realize it was also about not wanting to confront being on my own { as such } again. Coming from a large clan i rarely am alone, but my central core gets very lonesome at times.  Theres a waiting feeling ! But as i said "For what "

The rain has just started to pound the windows here this morning, Even the wee birds are running for cover lol  They{ the birds } are professionals at adapting, while we mortals, continue to make life a struggle for ourselves.. We need to observe them  and learn.

I wish you a blessed day. Thank you for taking the time to comment.

Its very much appreciated

I always get a lump in my throat watching the aged veterans on Rememberance  day.

They gave so much of themselves for there countries. Not a selfish bone among them.

Lessons to be learned from there strength Eh !
