January, traditionally the month for planning holidays, opened with Messenger chats from friends five time zones away. They plan to fly into Ireland in late summer. I hope to spark more of the pent-up demand for international tourism by visiting my hometown in Pennsylvania during the month of October 2022. I've discovered that talking about Ireland with friends from my past life can encourage people to book a trip.
I hope that I can entice the MAGA friends I have to visit Ireland. Based on past experiences, I know the most rabid Trumpists in my circle leave their Confederate flags behind when they come for pub talk in Tipperary.
The winter months have induced our hound to find an additional four hours of sleep every day. This must stop because I plan to start long walks with our Bedlington Terrier as part of a holistic exercise and nutrition campaign in 2022.
We need to find more neighbourhoods where we can park and walk. We clean up after Kerry squats so there shouldn't be any drama along the pathways of our new discoveries.
