"The best laid plans of mice and men -- And Luke 14:25-33
-- adapted from a line in “To a Mouse,” by Robert Burns: “The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men / Gang aft a-gley.”

So what's going on here? We are planning. On a Saturday morning, here we are doing our Planning at the Panera Bread place on FM1960 in Houston. Three laptops are in use with the WiFi (free), Karen's, Mrs. Jim's, and mine. (Mostly I'm kibitzing (definition) and writing this blog for Sunday.)
In April, the four of us have an Aer Lingus Vacations six night in Ireland. One night with Hotel in Dublin, four 'farmhouse' B&B's nights, and the last night at Powers Court Ritz Carlton.
More on our plans later.
-- Counting the cost
Read Luke 14:25-33:
(28) "Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Will he not first sit down and estimate the cost to see if he has enough money to complete it? (29) For if he lays the foundation and is not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule him, (30) saying, 'This fellow began to build and was not able to finish.'
Take care, Very best wishes, Merle.
I am just a tiny bit envious. Revisit Ireland in April is a dream.
The Emerald Island at her best.
Maybe next year Serina will continue her studies of photo and journalism in Dublin. Then I know a some parents who will be frequently visiting.
Tomorrow is the day tickets for Dylan's concert in Stavanger are available for purchase. That's where your son once worked. The event is to take place on a football stadium on may 3rd.
Would you want me to make reservations for u2?
Oooooooh, another Ireland trip??!!
2. I'd send the dog back home with Karen.
3. (okay 3 things) With that rabbit in the fridge I expect you won't run short of 'fresh raisins.'
