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.

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

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.

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

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.
