Yesterday was magic.
In truth, I’ve never happened upon a day in Ireland that hasn’t been magic, but the point is that Yesterday was MAGIC. And not only was it MAGIC, but it was MAGIC over and over again.
“What would you like to see?”, asked Olive. “Stripey Rocks and Cows, Please!”, I said all atwitter. There was a slight pause and a bit of a smile and then, “Well okay!”.
It started with the rocks — a mystical evening just beginning to turn, but bright enough to see a glow everywhere (because … IRELAND!”) And suddenly they were everywhere.
Plus a boot.
And then of course, the rest of the story ….

Your post brought back memories of twenty-five years ago when my wife and I rented a farmhouse on the Beara Peninsula. Stripey rocks abounded and cows chewed their cud in the field behind the house. We remember the day there was a great commotion as men tried to separate calves from the herd. “They’re taking the calves to make veal,” my wife exclaimed. Turns out the farmer just wanted to vaccinate the young calves.

That’s Ireland for you! I’m glad the calves were unscathed — I like your story very much!
