Taxi No. 1. Mary O
House to Westport Train Station
"I was warm in my house. It's nippy this morning. I'm glad I didn't shave my legs."
Mary O was not only cheerful but a cheerleader for the wonderful village of Westport Mayo Ireland. She had her doubts about the new statue in the center. "It claims to be a man on a horse, but it doesn't look like any man on a horse, I've ever seen." Still her tone was one of it being more than okay for a place where she loves living.
*****Taxi No. 2 Wayne
BnB to Dublin Airport Arrivals
Wayne explained how the taxi system in Dublin works with each driver owning their own car but
belonging to a cooperative and how the rides are divided up. He also is a member of the credit union and how easy it is to get loans. With almost every town and parish having credit unions and my writing about credit unions for the past 20 years, we could share a lot of information. He told me a couple of things that I had written about.
When he found out we would be going to the airport at (gulp) 4 am on the 23rd, he called the dispatcher and arranged for us to be picked.
The Greek islands are a wonderful place to visit, he told us. Rick and I have added that to our travel list.
Taxi No.3 James
Dublin Airport to BnB
Rick: How are you this morning?
James: What are you a doctor?
We didn't follow up much. Llara and I were too busy catching up on her flight, her family (my ex-side of the family) our adventure in Westport, etc.
