Merry Christmas!

A very happy Christmas to all who celebrate it and good wishes to everyone.

Connemara back road

I am taking today off, so instead of the usual musings I will simply share a photo that the Missus took on a recent spin on the back roads of Connemara. This would be not to awfully far from the ruins of “White o’ Morn,” the cottage that served as home for newlyweds John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara in the 1952 movie The Quiet Man.
