One Night In Dublin

_MG_0006It is a foggy night here in Ireland as I take the mongrel, minus her stitches, for her walkies. She likes her walkies… evil grin.

Don’t worry, I am not going to do her in. I have just spent 300 euro on liposuction for her, (fatty deposits that we thought might be malignant), fed her dog food from my hand, nearly given her mouth to mouth, and dressed her in my daughter’s clothes so that she couldn’t tear asunder her stitches. She quite liked all the attention, so much so that insists on sleeping in my bed.

_MG_0018_1As we walk, and she poos to her heart’s content, the quiet rustling of the autumnal leaves (foliage) leaves us in a state of dread. Someone is following us. We turn, our hearts thumping. Holy shit, poor Ali is growling like something from the Exorcist.

JHC. We have bears and turtles in suburban Dublin.

We pause to admire this out of focus tree while we run for our lives.


Then we leg it the hell out of there.


You will be glad to hear we made it home.

    Great job, IG, taking those pictures, even when being so scared by that gruesome pair.

    Check those alien dust bunnies under your bed! If they’re in the shape of a bear or turtle, take pictures! You could become famous! Or have your own reality show! “Life Behind the Lens” – the true story of a frightened photographer and being chased in the fog in Dublin by a bear and turtle! But her vicious dog keeps them at bay under the bed! You could write a book with lots of pictures and stick people and go on tour and come to America where people won’t think you nuts! We know about Mama Grizzlies and Turtles! Nice pictures – even the shaky ones! I have those in the sunshine and nothing chasing me! You’ll have to capture your thumb if you really want attention! šŸ™‚
    Good to know your doggie is getting better, spoiled, but better!

      I don’t know Mrs. G. If the bear really is Queen Esther, forget the dust bunnies, surely her image would have been showing up on slices of toasted cheese or patches of damp before now.

      Which reminds me – a little nonsense –

      Bad enough having nightmares about Mama Grisly, now I’ll be having them about The Turtle too.

      I refuse to defame perfectly good Ursidae by association with the Quitter.

  4. What bedtime stories your kidlets must have grown up with.! Speaking of scary, this showed up as a ‘like’ on my Facebook from an obviously conservative friend. It only clicked in my brain today that Ms. Kelly’s garb takes me right to the Playboy bunny get-up. Has Fox been working with children’s cereal makers to come up with the best ways to subconsciously get folks to buy the outside package without considering the inside?
