a few places around town have to be repaired.   I wonder if the stormy weather caused some of the problems.

this house is on Ballynally Road.



this stone wall is on the main road.

a bird on the wall


when I first saw the bird, I thought it was real.  I had to look closely and then realized it was not a real bird.  It had me fooled. :)

window washer

making sure the windows are clean.  I thought it was strange to see especially in the fog.   I took this photo last week.  It has been some real bad weather this week so I've been staying in and reading.  Hope your weather is better.

donegal castle

photo from 16/12/15

Donegal Castle is a castle situated in the centre of Donegal Town in County Donegal in Ulster, Ireland. For most of the last two centuries, the majority of the buildings lay in ruins but the castle was almost fully restored in the early 1990s.

The castle consists of a 15th-century rectangular keep with a later Jacobean style wing. The complex is sited on a bend in the River Eske, near the mouth of Donegal Bay, and is surrounded by a 17th-century boundary wall. There is a small gatehouse at its entrance mirroring the design of the keep. Most of the stonework was constructed from locally sourced limestone with some sandstone. The castle was the stronghold of the O'Donnell clan, Lords of Tír Conaill and one of the most powerful Gaelic families in Ireland from the 5th to the 16th centuries.

a dog day

just another day in the life of a dog.  Not much happening, we are in for a terrible week weather wise with rain and sleet coming back for a visit.  I always see this dog around, he's friendly, slow and old.  I really enjoy seeing him, he's a survivor, one day at a time.   A very wise dog!
