My friend really wants me to do this, but I think I'll pass (even though I could use the gift of eloquent speech that one is supposed to be blessed with after kissing the stone) due to plethora of germs that are bound to be lurking there. Also, there is the coordination thing of leaning over quite a ways to reach the stone.
The stone is part of the Blarney castle (click link for pictures). We'll also see the Waterford Glass Factory, the "lovely old city of Cork before driving to Killarney.
Update from Michael: She kissed the stone. Dang! I do not need her more eloquent when she argues with me!
Dear Lorenzen Boys: I'm sure every time I see a boy that is one of your ages I'll miss you even more if that is possible. I love you very, very, very much. I'll see you in nine days. P.S. I used Google Images for all my links today, so you'll be able to see a lot of beautiful pictures.
Note: I'm taking a vacation in Ireland, but have scheduled some posts to be published. My husband, Michael, will be home to take our two boys to school. Michael might write a post or two while I'm gone. Please feel free to comment while I'm gone. They'll be published. : )
