Two ships lost in the night


I wonder if this is stolen, parked in an unlikely spot

This entire block was built facing the wrong way, the founadtions were in when the rest of the plans arrived.Imagine it 180o the other way

The light closest is 1/3 smaller than the other one the rest is reflection


We put lights into the bay window at home. We got the fittings in "bright Lights in Glasnevin industrial estate beside Lidl.

Just by chance I picked up 2 people who were having a rough period in their day.
The first one was in her pajamas and dressing gown heading up to Clare Hall.
She was really glad to be picked up as no taxi driver likes a crazy woman in his car.
She was on a mercy mission to a friend who was having a major meltdown.
4 times the other woman rang on the way up (15 minutes)
"No honey I am in a taxi" etc. etc.
All the rest of the time I heard her life story.
She was born out of wedlock and her grandmother wanted her mother to go to England, have the baby and have it adopted..The grandfather insisted that she stay in Ireland and have the baby here,
The mother took flight when my passenger was a couple of years old and the grandparents tried to rear her. The granny died and as the grandfather couldn't take care of a small child she was taken into care. In and out of different institutions she met the woman we were going to rescue when they were 12 years old and they have been soulmates since.

We arrived €8 on the meter. Jesus she insisted on me to take €20. So strange when the business people on expense account wait for 40cent.

The second was a guy of around 20 dressed in black.. 3 stop journey.
Like the lady I got a good look into his private life.
He got out of prison the night before and he made 3 phone calls from my phone.
He didn't have time to fix himself up with a new one.
"I was innocent, CCTV footage, real blurred. It could have been anyone"
He went on to tell me how loads of young lads in prison were innocent.
The way things work, you are asked to drop this package over to Jimmy, then mind this for me and the next thing is you are caught in possession.
Well I dropped him at a lucky 7s casino, just the place not to be going.

I told someone that I write a blog once , A stupid British lady.

"Well I hardly thing anyone would find your life in any way interesting"

She had insisted to be brought to the wrong address.
I had brought 3 other delegates to the right address earlier.

A very sad story
