About Me

Still an ardent Irish-American Catholic damnYankee Yellow Dog Democrat socialist after all these years. (cue Simon music) Army brat and wife for many years, now have been on the loose far longer than I was married. After my two red chows died, I took in a mini-beagle cross that I named Molly Maguire, thinking she might need a good Irish name like my original real one. Later she got a baby sister, a smooth-coat JRT I named Brigid after the greatest of the ancient Celtic goddesses. My great-grandfather and his son fought for Michael Collins and barely made it out of Ireland one step ahead of John Bull. They slipped over to Wales for new identities and then forward to the States for a fresh start. That makes me second generation of illegal but certainly justified immigrants. There are precious few people to whose defense I fly immediately, but the list includes Hillary Clinton, President Barack Obama even when I disagree with him - it happens! - and living Irish patriots Gerry Adams and Martin \\\'Mind Your Kneecaps\\\' McGuiness. I pray earnestly for a united and free Ireland rescued from all official British occupation, with every square inch of alleged \\\'ancestral lands\\\' now held immorally and illegally by the invaders returned to the rightful owners. Irish-only rule for Ireland. No foreign masters anymore! I find it passing strange when Brits chide ME about \'interfering\' in Irish politics!

Well, since YOU were there at my side when it happened, I guess that makes YOU the authority,

does it????? My first-hand account versus your uninformed opinion. Of course you win! YOU wouldn't lie, would you? although you feel quite free to call me a liar. Talk about faux intellectual superiority!

Well, 'ahem' alone is insufficient, especially as the first example. BUT your pictures there are

excellent and irrefutable. Welcome or not, I'm now your devoted fan. Yes. I miss Jethro a lot. Like Barney Fife, he's a lot more fun as a fictional character than a real life encounter.

You seem to be under the misimpression that I'm obligated to jump when you bark. Not so.

AND I KNOW WHAT I HEARD AND SAW.

Actually, a friend sent me one link today, so I know it can be found if you care to try. I'm not your errand boy.
