Geez, you'd think if the government could locate Dad's e-mail address then they shouldn't have a problem figuring out his address, DOB, or phone numbers. They're already sending him Social Security and military retirement.

Funny you should mention Ireland

by CharlieSpencer In reply to damn man...

In February he and my mother will be making their third trip there since their retirement, not counting side trips when they were stationed in England in the '60's. I'll ask him to see what he can do, if Mom can get him out of the pubs.

Just to rub it in for JCK...

My father in law in his retirement made 2 trips a year pretty faithfully. One to Ireland to see his relatives, and one to Barbados, where he spent some time as child.

He passed away in November, but my wife is now thinking of getting an Irish passport - as he father was born there, she qualifies for one.

W. Ralph looks pretty honest to me.

Although his letter writing skills don't speak too well for Southeastern University.
