Sunday, to celebrate the build-up to Halloween, my manservant and I climbed our local mountain. It's exactly 1,024 feet (313 meters) high, but to someone of my stature, it's Everest.
The first part was easy--we drove down the street in the trusty PT Cruiser!
Then I engaged my Sherpa guide to carry my dog-biscuits.
At length, we arrived at the summit!
My faithful Sherpa took my picture as I planted the flag of County Kerry at the roof of the world.
Oh...you noticed that someone had preceded us? I wonder what gave that away!
At any rate, the view was formidable! We could see our house--sort of--actually, you'd have to look through the canopy of orange maples! I autographed the castle just to claim ownership, and we hiked home!
