Thanks Redwing. On the way to the airportnearDublinI felt that a ride on a ship across the ocean was exactly what I needed, so I cashed inthe flight ticket that Steve paid for and made up the difference for the ride on the ship out of my own pocket. Blue skies and smooth water all the way home. Good thing was that I only had enough for a third class ticket, so, that placed me down near the ship's enginewhere I was thrilled to see all the, shafts,pistons and valves and other gear moving as we steamed along. Got along real well with the crew also because I spoke their language, you know, nuts, bolts and stuff like that.
Feels good to be back home next to my Wing, but, Ireland is a lovely place to visit and I wouldn't hesitate to go back again if I had the opportunity, especially if Steve was going to foot the billlike he did this time.
