Hi Y!

You sneaky person, I know you're not listing your birthday on Facebook.  Hey, you can keep the year a secret, but Ning alerted all of us about tomorrow...HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS & COMING YEAR!!!

(I'd rather say it here anyway as it keeps it among the storytelling family.)

Buíochas!! Are you in Ann Arbor? I did a few gigs in MI years ago but the only one I recall was in Ann Arbor...long story.. you know how the Irish can turn a sedate party on it's head with music and 'performance art'...

Beir búa Yvonne! My son Aindrias is one of the 'young tellers' + has much success at Fringe Festivals in Edinburgh, Oz + NZ. He's doing a short tour of the US in Nov enroute to Melbourne, Au...he's in Boston + SF with a performance called 'Around the World on 80 Quid' he also has an Irish version which is gaining him a lot of kudos...the tradition survives!

Yvonne, go ra' míle maith agat. Tá súil agam go mbeidhfimid ag 'caint' arís! To put a fada over a letter on a Mac just hold down alt + type letter. Yes, the irish folklore commission was a stroke of genius by the infant state...tons and tons of stories there that have never seen the light of day sine...I'm translating some which were collected in Irish from Stiofán O'hEillire in Clare @ 1928

Hello beautiful,
I hope you are under a palm tree sipping something wonderful with a little umbrella in it. Take care of yourself, and thanks for all that you do .

Hi Yvonne

Thank you for your generous offer. I will let you have my address as you suggested. I had hoped to have a chat in Gatlinburg but you never landed for long enough!

All the best. Mike
