Mary and I bundle up at the base of an old Sesile Oak on a trail at the Glenn of Aherlow at the base of the Galtee Mountains, County Tipperary.
Yesterday, I looked up to spot some folks parachuting down from a plane. Mary's mother's neighbor has a small airfield and offers parachuting lessons. "Twould be a shame now if they landed in the old bog between us and the cross of eyon," her mother said with a smile. "They wouldn't find them for a week, you know."
I wonder how the weather is in North Carolina.
