The butterfly farm

    Leaf insect
       The sign on the window said Closed
     This is Mabel Fox 103 1/2 years young.

Well after I got my car fixed up I rang Mabel to say that it is time for our yearly visit to the Butterfly farm in Straffin Co.Kildare, we have been going there every year for the last 4 years. Iris who runs the show takes out the snakes and spiders for us to all see.
It has just closed for the winter now.
But come next June make a B line for it.

You know Mabel has lived through 2 World wars plus the civil war, she well remembers 1916 and the rising.
She is a sharp as a tack, she reads the paper every day and has opinions and questions on all the topics of the day.

She is the youngest 103 1/2 year old I know.
