  1. Hello Ian! I was just stopping by to see if you had heard the news that Garrison Keillor announced his plans to retire in the Spring of 2013. I thought of you when I heard the annoouncement. I know you have been a fan. I hope this finds you well.

  3. That was an unexpected conclusion to the story.
    But to be fair to the Gardai – I was once picked up by a patrol car while hitching where I shouldn’t have been – kind of on the motorway. They gave me a lift to the end of it without any fuss.
    Though it could have been to give them time to informally question the possessor of a suspicious northern accent. Still – I was glad of the lift.
    Then there was that time in Kilkenny when I was offered a cell for the night if I couldn’t find space in a B&B. Luckily the Garda managed to find me one and drove me to it – so the night behind bars didn’t materialise.
    Like your tale, both these happened a fair few years ago – though I tend to think of it as only the other day.

  4. Hi Gram,

    I read about Keillor’s proposed retirement. I think there should be some Federal prohibition of any such move!
