The Cat of Christ Church Cathedral

As we were leaving the evening song service, we noticed this woman preparing a late Sunday afternoon picnic for this kitty. It was very formal and cute.

Dublin Calling ... How the Celebrations of the 40's Began

Always fixated on time ... tomorrow will be the three year anniversary of our departure to Dublin to celebrate Janice's 40th birthday.  The succession of those entering this new age is increasing each year as a whole new group of friends gets ready to join those of us already on "the other side."  Music and places bring back such beautiful memories. 
The famous Ha'penny Bridge over the River Liffey in the background.

This store is part of U2 history.  Buskers take advantage of the location.

Arriving at the airport and taking our first Dublin Bus ride to the Temple Bar area.  It was a cold, Sunday morning and we had somewhat of an idea of how to get to The Clarence.  When we did exit the bus, the streets were made of cobblestones and all you could hear were the Guinness delivery trucks picking up the kegs that were left outside of the pubs from the night before.  This picture ended up being chosen for use in a "Schmap" guide for Dublin in 2008.
