Flooding in Ireland

During visits to Ireland, we would work on the farm one day and visit around the next. In the fall during harvest, I got to work on the tractor pulled thresher, standing on a small platform holding burlap sacs. As one filled up, you swung it out of the way and quickly got another one positioned to catch grain. All during this the machine is bouncing so it was important to keep one's balance. Mid morning all stopped and we went to the local pub, the one the public rarely visited, to hoist a pint.
Well, one pint may have lead to two and then in the afternoon may have lead to another one. But the grain kept coming and it would become more difficult to maintain that balance so necessary for preventing wheel tracks on body parts. Yet the state of mind could get careless so it made for exciting times.
A race horse owned by the daughter in the family would not let a stranger near it but would follow my kids everywhere. It was strange seeing this giant animal with it's head between the boys, starting and stopping so precisely to avoid any mis-steps as they wandered over the fields.

The boys were especially thrilled when Dad got thrown into the dungeon.

And now, back to the pub, afterall, what's a bit of water, it's not past me boots yet.....
