Ever been here?

My wife picked out this card at the recent card show we went too. She likes to collect eclectic cards. She has the Poley Walnuts card from 2008 (we're still looking for the Skip Schumaker squirrel card for a reasonable price or trade).

This card is pretty cool..

It's the Blarney Castle in Ireland. One of the main tourist attractions I think. If you go to the top (up a rather neat spiral stone staircase) you can lean over the side while some dude holds your legs and kiss the wall upside down. I partook in that. Not a whole lot of real castles in America so its' real neat to see the history in other countries. I highly recommend going to Ireland if you have the chance. Lots to see and do.

Thanks for reading!


  1. I really like that set. Nice to have a personal connection as well. I'm with your wife --- collecting-wise.

  2. I've kissed the Blarney Stone too! Loved Ireland. The Irish people are so damn funny.
