Ha! I told a friend of mine that we were going to see Kansas and he said "Country Music?" He's probably in his 60's.... ;-) I think I told him to Carry on my Wayward Son...

Good and faithful hat of 10 years, recently repaired and well cherished.

Oh well - never mind. Cable car stops 2 blocks later and this guy runs up and gives me my hat back !

Way to go - Idaho 😇

I gave him a good drink as thanks and have been re united with my hat.

That was so cool.
Did he know what Vansairforcenet was?

Thumbs up Very Close!

Close but not quite Keith, the picture was taken at Ashford Castle, in county Mayo. Dromoland is in county Clare, about 50 miles south of Ashford. They do have falconry at Dromoland too
