Unfortunately Tempus I spent very little time in Castlebar.Saturday night through Monday night only.Jean is still there.A friend of mine from Nursing school days flew in from London to see us for the w/e in Castlebar..She is my daughters Godmother.Did run into PJ in Breaffy House.Went up to Croagh Moyle with Ger.Did meet up with the mutual friend of JDP and I.Also saw a couple of old friends briefly.Never got to have a 99.Weather not as good this year.We were in Miltown Malbay for the St Patricks day parade.Small but nice,a beautiful day.They were selling lines there for insurance for the parade.Everywhere we went (with the exception of a 78 year old Co Clare man who sang his praises )everyone(well thats a slight exaggeration) wanted to tell us how stupid GWB is .That got old after a while.We are on holidays for Gods sake! Yes I would love to be able to spend 6 months here and six months over there.That would be ideal. We did enjoy our visit.Not any glaring changes in the town from our visit last year.Hopefully next time we'll share that 99 Tempus.
