Brilliant post Terence and a tribute to your people, as well as middle-name sake. And no doubt inevitable it should end in Galway.

Great post, Terence! I love your poem, and I love the statue of St. Patrick with the sheep nuzzling up to him.

I just confirmed that my great-grandmother was Mary Flynn, born in Ireland and emigrated to New York, so perhaps we are related!

Have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day!

Terence, you silver penned bastard. Love this. M. O'K.

Thanks, Laura.  We'll have to talk more about Mary Flynn.

you can say that again!

This was totally enjoyable. Thanks, TW.


Great post. I love the photo of you and Jesse in the Accordion Band, and your poem nails it.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Wow, uncle Terry...

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
