Our Ter

Our Terry looking as beautiful as ever. She should be on the cover of Vogue. If I am not mistake this is a Barbour bedale coat, so welcome to the world of country living. All you need now is a pair of Hunter boots and they might let you in to the palace for a spot of horse show attendance.
Beautiful shot.

Riding Lesson In Indio California.

These were some of the happiest days doing what I really loved to do. The instructor here was a young californian rider who was super good. I didn't realize how much she had taught me until I got back up to Seattle and started riding with my friends who told me how much progress I had made while I was with Melissa.
The horse is a thouroughbred off the racetrack. Her name was Penelope and she had a weak back so I couldn't sit as I could with other horses. I rode her in a show and she did very well. I was pretty much still a novice rider but I did well.
She was a difficult horse for me to ride in the beginning.

The Backyard

JP, Dad, Gerry McInerney and I think Linda with of course the Phyllis one getting in the picture. Must have been around 1960 or so. Gerry McInerney was a friend of mine who got me the job in Jervis Street Hospital and I think I was still working there when this photo was taken.

Thanksgiving 2011.

Looks like a lot of fun was had by all. Thank you to Faith and her family for having my family with you. Pictures of Abbie, Max, Nick, Oona, Sean and Jamie.

Macca At 64 And Looking It..............

Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm sixty four.
Seems like yesterday that this was unthinkable.

A Question For The Girls

The question is about our Paul.
Every girlfriend that I have ever brought home has fallen in love with our Paul. Eva, 30 years later still talks about Paulo is if he was her long lost love. Cathy from France absolutely adored Paul. She was swept off her feet. Cathy from Wexford is still in love with Paul. The man is a babe magnet ! You put Paul into a room of wonderful girls and they sit and chat with him as if they had know him all their lives and are ready to divulge their most secret of secrets. We just sit and watch in amazement. I just couln't get over Eva.... she just adored him and still does.
When Woody Allen was asked what he would like to come back as he said " Warren Beatty's fingertips". How would he feel about Paul?
The question to all you girls is .......... how does he do it. He is quiet and unassuming........ what is his secret ? Teach us !

Be Thankful For Small Mercies

They need to take some lessons from the english police. David Cameron wanted to bring the american police to Europe to teach the English police crowd control. I don't think so.

22nd Of November 1963

Now the years are rolling by me
They are rocking evenly
I am older than I once was
But younger than I'll be
That's not unusual

Carolyn Playing Scott Joplin

This is Brendan's very talented daughter Carolyn. She's been in Switzerland and hadn't played the piano for a year but she made short work of this piece.

Remembering Smokin' Joe

Philadelphia's own Smokin' Joe. Lived here in Philly and was regular personality around town. Graham met him when he was here. He is lying in State at the stadium in Philadelphia for the next two days. Great Boxer.
Good post Colin.
Smokin' Joe as they called him was one of the bravest and most tenacious boxers in recent memory. He had the stamina to go so many rounds with Ali and he never gave up. He was a fighter in every sense of the word.
If you want to watch and rewatch these great fights I recommend this DVD. I watch it regularly and as a matter of fact I think I will watch the Frasier/Ali fight tonight. Great sportsmen and great boxers; both of them.
There are three great fights on this DVD.
