the ticket man

was writing out tickets the other day when we went to Buncrana.  Buncrana is a pay and display town which means you pay for the amount of time you need to park your vehicle, take the receipt and place it on your dashboard so it can be seen.  The pay and display machine is the box with the P on it.  They are placed all over town at various places.   The ticket man does his rounds and if someone’s time has expired he enters the violation in his computer and takes a photo of the ticket that he has left on the windscreen so there is proof he left the ticket and there is no misunderstanding.
Surplus revenue from these services contributes to urban renewal programmes, public facilities and other forms of local authority spending.

concern

When I walked pass this cement truck, the guy you see was climbing up the ladder.  Further down the road, I happened to look back and this is what I saw.  There were workers renovating the building on the right which is going to be a restaurant and no one seemed concerned.   I imagine the guy knew what he was doing but he should be following some kind of protocol.   It doesn't look good  when this is all you see.

mary had a little lamb

I don’t know if Mary’s lamb was named Larry but Larry made his appearance in the Moville library on March 8th to meet some students from the local school.  He was a big hit with the kids.  Larry is happy to celebrate the 187th anniversary today of Mary Had A Little Lamb nursery rhyme.

It was first published by the Boston publishing firm Marsh, Capen & Lyon, as an original poem by Sarah Josepha Hale on May 24, 1830 which makes it 187 years old today.
