It was a work day here in lovely Listowel. The town is beginning to hustle and bustle as the holidays draw nearer. Even the post office had a queue (line) today! Now that we've sorted out the international shipping for our collaborative coloring book, I'll be the post office elf for the month. It is rather fun to stand in a line here in Ireland. Everyone is so patient and polite. I can't imagine the same line in Fort Lauderdale without someone blowing a gasket.
Seriously, though, this is great press for Olive Stack and all the incredible Listowelians (is that a word?) who have created this holiday adventure.
After the gallery closed, I headed up the street to Allo's, an award winning restaurant just a few doors from Olive Stack's, for a delicious three course meal with some very special ladies.
There is such deep connection and history between these women and the town. All the Allo's staff knew them by name, of course, and even knew their preferred wine. And the conversation covered connections between people towns away, years ago through today, in a web of community and history I haven't found in the states.
