You thinking about visiting another country, or relocating? Isn't your wife Irish?

It could easily be argued that I may have contributed to the feeling you have about your thread going into the weeds. Clearly, I got carried away with my enthusiasm for our annual event in GB, but your thread seems to still be doing fine with interest already expressed by several members.

Threads often wander after a time, but this one may have started rather prematurely with my help.

In my defense, I hope you'll note I was supportive of your idea for a GTG with my comments in post 5, I believe you're on to something that will continue to be enthusiastically received. and I be following your thread with a conscious effort to restrain my wandering comments.

Well you know when I retire, the first place my wife will want to go is Ireland.

Due to past thread hijacks in this thread.....I will bump this to the top periodically.

I might not be doing ANY trip next year as we are close to buying our retirement home, lakeside in Milles Isle, Quebec.

That will basically put me in the poor house until I can sell my 2 homes in Barrie....sometime 2020-21.

First World problem.

House rich and money poor. Happens to most of us at one time or another.
