Push the Car!

Push the Car!

A modified car is pushed down Pana by the driver’s friends and a helpful passerby. When the engine finally coughed into life the oversize exhaust pipe emitted a very loud roar and his friends jumped in and sped off.

My wife Jacinta passed her driving test today. She drove us to the test center in Wilton, and even though I did my test years ago I couldn’t help but feel nervous. I think everyone who steps inside that single story building probably feels the same.

Remember your driving test? I remember a bus broke down right in front of me that I had to overtake. When I was asked to reverse around a corner a learner driver appeared and proceeded to reverse around the same corner. Twice!
After the second go, my tester urged me, “Quick, get around the corner before he comes back!”

Luckily I passed.

PS. Will Knott is spending a Sunday in St. James Cancer Unit in Dublin. They’re going to hold a fundraiser. They’re still looking for volunteers to photograph the event so please get in touch if you can spare a few hours on a Sunday afternoon.

Actually, I’ve never been in there. With Valentine’s Day fast approaching (well, it’s only a month away but some shops are already advertising it), I wonder if they’ll have a brisk trade?

Last of the Construction Workers

Last of the Construction Workers

Recession, recession, re… The R Word. Construction workers on the site of the new shopping center in Cork City on Patrick’s Street. I walked past this entrance a few times and the guy in the blue jumper was standing in the same place, watching me each time. Scary.
