a bit of fun


Sitting in a cafe in Castlecomer, Co Kilkenny, yesterday, my wife and I watched two young women trying to transport what appeared to be two skip baps balanced on top of a wheel barrow. The load slipped left, the load slipped right, the load slipped forward. One held tight on the handles, the other tried to keep the bags in place. The heavy rain didn't help!

Sitting snug behind plate glass eating our lunch we found it better than television. The women saw us watching; we smiled and waved & they smiled back. They clearly knew how funny they must look & didn't take themselves too seriously. If only more folk were like that, the world would be a far more pleasant place.
