    Within the confine of my fastidious bachelor path , I eventually felt a touch of happiness , short but real!!
    Alis, the happiness walked out on me again.

    We are all damaged, in life and in love ; we must choose which imperfections we can live with.

  2. Peter Says:

    I went to a bar with my Irish friends
    They play all rugby
    We went there after the game
    It was all fun
    Here ,they celebrated dog three years
    We sang,and drank
    It was a fun night
    Then ,I crashed on my friends coach
    The while thing I was thinking of you and that you are irish
    How come you are not into rugby
    Cheers
