Tim the butcher (72 years of age) comes in around noon having worked on the sheep since 6:30 am, he tips his hat and says to Dennis the Bar Man at Laurels on Main Street Killarney, “when does happy hour start, Dennis?
Dennis replies “the minute you walk back out the door happy hour begins!”
they have a good ‘crack’ (laugh) then Tim sits next to us. He opens up his paper and says to Dennis “give me a blonde in a black dress, now would you man?”
We are curious.
Dennis plops a Guinness down in front of the butcher Tim. He looks up from under his specs and says to us “she’s the only gurl I can handle at my age as he takes a long draw on his beer!”
we smile. We hit the jackpot for bar neighbors! Oh the stories! What fun!
