Drama in our street today...there has been a car parked down near the big river since Friday and at last Himself agreed to take the number and I'd 'phone the Guards and tell them...

So, the Guards turned up in force...vans emblazoned with Search and Rescue on the side and little tiny Guarda cars and big swanky ones that chase people...

It transpired that the owner of the car had reported it missing...along with her son. Some of the neighbours and a couple of the Guards walked down the sides of the river and the search and rescue bods sort of hung about and then everyone looked in the nearby woods and there was much doom and gloom and despondency...until the chap in charge received a message to say the young man had been found at Shannon.

All the Guards immediately clammed up and wouldn't say whether he was alive or dead...in the river Shannon or at the airport...

They climbed back into their cars and vans and drove away...and here we are...none the wiser.
