HAPPY ST. PADDY’S DAY!


HERE’S WISHING ALL OF YOU A HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!!  HERE’S JUST A WEE BIT OF PHOTOS FROM MY TRIP TO IRELAND IN 1985.

 St. Patrick Statute built December 1909

 Here’s a picture I took of a statute of St. Patrick in front of St. Mary’s Cathedral, Kilkenny Town, Ireland, back in 1985 when my family and I went there. Apologize for the bad color but that was taken some time ago and my photos have aged, much like me.

The original St. Patrick's Cross

The is the original St. Patrick’s Cross located at the Rock of Cashel, County Tipperary, Ireland. It’s in an area called St. Patrick’s Rock, Cashel within the castle. The castle itself is located on a very large rock cropping and is very striking.

As the title on the photo says, this is the “Rock”. Get your hiking shoes on for this little climb.

Ah, yes. A pint of Guinness at the
oldest pub in Ireland, Durty Nelly’s.

WELL, FROM THE RYAN CLAN, WE WISH ALL THE VIEWERS A HAPPY AND FUN ST. PADDY’S DAY!!

A Brown Christmas


Well, no change in the weather up here. Still in low teens for the morning and mid-40’s for daytime temps. And the kicker is no snow predicted at least until New Year’s. My ATV/snowplow is ready though when it does come down in buckets!!

The animals are still around. A deer walked in front of the house yesterday and the elk are still out back. A neighbor’s outdoor camera has recorded several coyotes around and the foreman of the ranch behind us says he’s seen cougar tracks around. You’d think we live out in the country? I guess we do.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Nothing New Here . . . .


Haven’t had much input from anyone about this site. Of course, it is new and I’m just getting it out to friends. So, I’ll just keep plugging along. Besides, it’s too cold here to go outside. I mean it’s been down to the low teens and less with no more thast 45 degrees high during the day. And there are no clouds in the sky. Just lots of sun!!

Hello world!


Hello Everyone!

This is my first attempt to establish some type of blog. Yeah, I know it’s the 21st Century, but hey, I’m 66 years old. Give me some slack.

I need some type of vehicle to put out examples of my hobby – photography – and it looks like this may be the one. So without anymore fanfare or drum roll, off into the sunset I go!

P.S.- That’s me and my dog Scooter. He’s a three legged Labradoodle and my best friend!! We were up around the Bonneville Dam on the Columbia River and he wanted to see what it looked like. Just a lot of cement with some water around it.
