FDV2: "This is the life for me. Well you know & don't you know but every story has an end look, look the dusk is growing. What time is it? It must be late.

Yes, we will. Spread on your side and I'll spread mine on mine. Where are all her childer now? Some here, more gone no more, more again gone to the stranger. I've heard tell that same brooch of the Shannons was married into a family beyond the ocean. And all the Dunnes takes eights in hats."
