Wordless Wednesday

Roland Parton (ahmet54)

Yvan Rouxel (Exposure)

Molly Malone
Dublin

...as she wheeled her wheelbarrow

through streets broad and narrow

crying 'cockels and mussels! alive, alive oh!'

alive, alive oh, alive, alive oh!

crying 'cockels and mussels! alive, alive oh!'

When we were in Dublin I posed for a photograph with sweet Molly and just had to sing the song! Well you can't not, can you? :)

Hey Mary, you have 'taught' me once more! Thank you much.
Are you aware that June 13 is International Molly Malone Day?

We have been to Dublin a couple of times but those times I didn't know to look for her statue. I probably walked right by it (not really, I would have stopped, admired, and wondered).
