It Must Be Dingle

Whatever it means store, you said it.
We hit Dingle in the late afternoon. It's a sweet small town but the rain was coming down and it was becoming a bit of a ghost town. 
However we did duck into this amazing crepe place. 
So if your in Dingle go there. And get the egg, ham and cheese crepe. It comes folded into a square with the unbroken yolk sticking out the middle. It was awesome. 

We probably should have stayed here. 
So we can say we were at the "berry" lodge of dingle. I'll let you work on that for a minute. I got so excited when I saw this sign because I was making jokes the whole trip that as soon as we got to Dingle I wanted to sample their famous berry pie. This guy thought I was trying to get a picture of him. When I only wanted the sign.

Leaving dingle I had my hand eaten off by this tower. 
Weird huh.

James Hernandez said...


LMAO! Geez in my previous post I mentioned "American Pie" now you mention dingle berries. Wasn't that American Pie 1?

Honeybell said...

You paparazzi, I can hear it now: "Jorge Garcia stalked me through Dingle!"

The McKell Spot said...

Jorge your Awesome and I'm so glad you have a blog, you make me laugh all the time! Holly

Avinash said...

So, let me get this straight... you had your hand on a massive phallic-like tower in an area called Dingle? If I ever write a stand-up routine, this is definitely going in it...

Petra said...

I'm a scrapbooker, and it has changed the way I take photos. As a blogger, do you find you take photos BECAUSE they will make a hilarious post, or have you always taken crazy pix and now just have an outlet for your wonderful, slightly off beat and zany sense of humor?

Thanks, once again, for the giggle!

: ) P

Jodi said...

You are too funny. Famous berry pie. LOL! Glad to see you got your hand back.

That guy in the picture is hysterical!

PS. The crepe did sound good!

Merry Karma said...

Melissa Markham said...

Dingleberry...haven't heard that in a long time. Hope your hand grows back...you might need that in the next season of LOST.

Thanks for the chuckle.....and the crepe does sound good. Actually, I haven't had breakfast yet. Everything sounds pretty good right now....

Colleen Oakes said...

It was smokey that ate your hand...........

David said...

To combine some common themes from your last couple of posts:

I went to Ireland in February, and immediately after landing we drove from Shannon airport to Dingle.

Crossing over Conor Pass, that horse cart of a road over a beautiful hillside, I got over a bit too far and gave us a nice flat tire. Thankfully down in Dingle there was a garage open and we got it taken care of.

I love me some Dingle.

Topanga said...

I was expecting to see some Dingleberries at the base of that hand-eating tower.

redelf said...

Penis tower. I like it.

I love reading your posts, they are always so funny and interesting.

This stuff might help you with your white fly problem, and it's organic. Or, you can make yellow sticky traps. Put Vaseline or cooking oil on anything yellow and place it near the plants. White flies are attracted to yellow surfaces. Maybe you could just get some of those hanging sticky fly traps and see if those work. The flies breed in the soil, so you may find that you still get more of them.

sneakers shoes She continued,
"Why...? Don't you need someone to pose as your girlfriend this year?" Then he answered, "No, there is no need for that anymore......"
Before he can continue, he was interrupted, discount nike shoes"Oh yes! Must have found a girlfriend! nike shox r4 You haven't been searching for one for the past years, right?" The man looked up, as if he has struck gold, his face beamed and looked directly at the drunken girl. tn dollarHe replied, "Yes......you are right! I haven't been looking for anyone for the past years."
With that, the man darted across the floor and out the door, cheap nike shoesleaving the lady in much bewilderment. He finally realized that he has already found his dream girl, and she was.....the Vancouver girl all along! The drunken lady has said something that awoken him.
All along he has found his girl.nike tennis shoes That was why he did not bother to look further when he realized she was not coming back. It was not any specific girl he was seeking! cheap nike shoxIt was perfection that he wanted, and yes.....perfection!!
Relationship is something both parties should work on. Realizing that he had let away someone so important in his life, he decided to call her immediately. His whole mind was flooded with fear.free shipping shoes He was afraid that she might have found someone new or no longer had the same feelings anymore..... For once, he felt the fear of losing someone.
As it was Christmas eve, the line was quite hard to get through, especially an overseas call. He tried again and again, never giving up. Finally, he got through......precisely at 1200 midnight. He confessed his love for her and the girl was moved to tears. nike shoes It seemed that she never got over him! Even after so long, she was still waiting for him, never giving up.

Too short for those who rejoice;
But for those who love...
Time is Eternity.

In 1981, ed hardy and his wife formed Hardy Marks Publications. In 2004, Christian Bale licensed the rights to produce the high-end Ed Hardy UK line, which is based on Hardy's imagery. Prior to the ed hardy clothing line, Bale was the Head Designer at Von Dutch Originals, which marketed the imagery of Kenny Howard. Don ed hardy, commented, As demand for my artwork continues to skyrocket, I felt it was ed hardy clothing time to take on a partner that could help me manage the demand and opportunities for the ed hardy T-shirts name. Iconix is at the forefront of brand management and clearly has the capabilities to dramatically grow the Ed Hardy UK business. I'm thrilled to have them as a partner. Cheap Ed Hardy are located in everywhere. We also believe that by owning the brand alongside ed hardy clothing, the founder, there will be opportunities to further leverage his iconic name along with his new artwork.
