"Tell Us 10 Things About Yourself We Don't Know:" A Long Time Ago in South Armagh

A couple posts back, MARTIN left a comment asking me to play a version of a popular game that was making the rounds on Facebook. Wrote M:

Hey totally off topic SKK, but there is a thing going around on facebook where someone gives you a number and you list that many things about yourself. Here you go, SKK, do it on your website. 10 things we don't know about you!

So I've been thinking.

I probably could come up with 10, but they don't all spring to mind. For some reason, though, I thought about something that happened in Ireland. Here's one bit of info that most people - even my Irish family - don't know about me.

I've been here. South Armagh. 

No, I wasn't the sniper. But I definitely was there. A long time ago. A very long time ago.

Well... in the grand scheme of things... true. But it definitely was a different time! : )

Sounds like you're a bit hesitant to tell us why you were there. I understand, however, that many of us would like to leave certain things in the past because of, shall we say, the nature of those things. :-)

Not yet, QM; but I'm getting there... ; )

LOL!

MARTIN said...

That's one thing. You have 9 to go!

Can't be that long ago, you were using colour fillum.
