Pulsing the World As Lord De Cross Went with Claire Tully All Over England

Source

Who Would've thought!! Immersing Ourselves into a Gaelic World!

We landed at Dublin International Airport, courtesy of Ryanair( Irish: Aerfort Bhaile Átha Cliath) and found Page 3 Brainiest model Claire Tully. Back in 2008 she wanted to donate proceeding from her Topless Calendar to breast cancer research charities and was turned down. Eventually one organization took the cash offer in euros and made her feel felt better.-- Thankfully the National Breast Cancer Research Institute Centre in Galway accepted her donation.

Joseph: Claire, thanks for inviting us to jog along with you down Dublin and who knows... Maybe all the way to London!

Claire: Not a problem Joseph. I read your first Jog along hub, and was laughing so hard!! Nell's feeding really helped me to get in contact with you! You are really a comedian "mo chara!!" (Irish: my friend)

Joseph: Which in Irish gaelic means..?

Claire: Sure, means "mon cheri" or my friend. But just remember this: I'm a Corker, so you will know my own variations among the regional differences in our Irish provinces (Cúigí na hÉireann).

Warming up and then...ops!

Oh God!! Please Claire!! You are not gonna go jogging with us like that? (Just kidding)

Joseph, I read about the American way and liberty for all... and I know what you wanted to tell me. But relax Joey, I was just getting ready to go out with you, and you never gave me time to put my jogging sweat pants on... 'amaideach' !(silly)

I know, I know... gotta find out if HubPages is going to take your Irish pride all the way. You got that one?

I guess it was a silly American joke! Oh!! Sorry mo chara!

The only Mocha I know is the one from 'Starbucks,' Claire! But is already 6 a.m. Why don't we go out and start jogging. What's the name of the park you usually go to, my Irish beauty?

Herbert Park, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4, Dublin

A couple in their late fifties approached us and kept jogging next to Claire and me. There we go again peeps!

The old lady: So, young lad! is our Claire Tully your new Irish Girlfriend?

Joseph : No ma'am. Do we look like an item or a cute couple? (maybe Claire never told us, huh?)

The old lady: Well, here in Dublin getting a new girlfriend is like joining the army. You get a new haircut, new clothes and all information is given to you on a need to know basis. And our colors match the moment!

Claire Tully: Oh my..! That was funny! Did you get it Joseph?

Joseph: as long as this is a hub, and all is just my imagination, I think I've got it. I mean, I'm safe in my own creativity, Claire...!

We just moved faster, and this time I didn't kick that doggie to the curve...!

Scotland, "Scots Wha Hae!"

'

Edinburgh, Next Morning



Bought a pair of tickets on the net and ended up on Edinburgh, the Capital of the 'dark green.' Claire wanted to study Biochemistry here but graduated from Trinity College back in Dublin.

Claire Tully: You see now Joseph, blonds are not dumb at all! I gained a first class degree in Biochemistry from Trinity College in Dublin, and wanted to do research at our own disease control center, but modeling took so much time and energy!

Joseph: Tammy Tamicic was right! No wonder I never did a 'blonde joke' for a long, long time!

NewHaven Harbour, Edinburgh Scotland

We knew we had to keep moving and enjoy the day in Rod Stewart's lande. We were jogging toward Granton (west side of the harbour), when a young couple joined us at our own pace (as usual!).

The Scotish Ginger haired lady: You guys should come with us an enjoy our own way of losing some pounds

Me and Claire looked at each other, shrugged and agreed to follow this couple to a session of:

Scottish Country Dancing??

Bristol, UK-- John Cabot and the Concorde

Sorry Cardiff! We know the Country of Wales was a wonderful place to visit, but this time we ended up in Bristol UK.

The town of Brycgstow (Old English, "the place at the bridge) was a place we were supposed to visit in 2009, but things did change at the last minute. This time we were visiting Clifton, a few miles to the East. The accent had changed since we left Dublin. Even Claire had a hard time understanding This new Celtic. We decided to jog around the Main Cathedral

Claire: Is not too bad to learn Bristolian Joseph

Joseph : Yeah I'm an "Idut!"

Claire: Mint in it! (is good, isn't it?)

Learning Bristolian?? Maybe...!

After 10 laps, The Enemy Approached Us..!

It was just a young girl in her early 20's from this University of the West of England, formerly Bristol Polytechnic. She did see us earlier, but didn't mind us. Then she came with a vengeance:

Young UWE student: Ow bist!! (How are you!) You people are not from here right?

Claire: No dear, I guess you are (turning that head with attitude). Why darling?

Joseph: She is a nice looking Bristolian, Claire, stop it!

Young UWE student: I want to apologize to both of you, my boyfriend and I caught you guys kissing each other. Does that mean you are boyfriend and girlfriend?

Claire: Please Joseph!! Tell this B-I-T-C-H, to stop getting on MY nerves, will you?

Joseph: Claire please, this is just a funny hub. Can't you just smile for once?

The UWE student's boyfriend showed up and told her, "it was time to go." But they took another picture of us with their cellphone, while leaving. Were we heading into breaking news hysteria Tamorra? (Tomorrow?)

Claire!!

A markerWestminster Abbey UK -
Westminster Abbey, City of Westminster, London SW1P, UK
[get directions]

London, U.K. Hi Molometer, Nell and Lesley!

The London Tower was still looking great. The Olympics 2012 were over, but still remembered Dave Beckham and the Olympic torch. Claire and me took our time. We woke up around 4 a.m. and went back to bed. It was my biological clock I guess. Lathing went through the same mess when she was in London. Claire and I did the same routine, woke up by 5:30 a.m. and headed to the Thames river. Amazing how londinum had change!

There they Come!!

Right on time! Two old Golden British "Grand dames." They were speeding their pace just to get closer and start that "jogging along syndrome."

Golden Lady 1: Do not believe in our English phlegm. That was Ian Flemming's invention.

Claire: Hi there beautiful ladies. Don't mind me but, did you bring digital cameras this morning?

Golden lady 2: No young lady. We are just "walking on sunshine" and trying to get in shape!!

Joseph: I see that! Do you know this friend of mine, Mike Mulcaney?

Golden Lady 1: I really don't know him. Is he a Rocker from the last American Invasion?

Claire: He is molometer, a fine writer,... never mind!

We were having fun, when we bumped into this lady..!

Joseph : Nell Rose!! Hi! You live near these commonwealth realms?

Nell Rose: Hi! Yeah Joseph, or Lord! Nice company you have.

Claire Tully: Isn't that funny Nell? Joseph wrote this hub, and we feel...Well, I feel used!

The old ladies stopped and went back to Westminster Abbey section. They reminded me of a Queen Elizabeth, but just a little younger.

Joseph: Please Claire, don't feel bad! Do you know how long it took me to write this hub?

Nell Rose: I see that Joseph. You did good! I'm really impressed! Nice to meet the both of you! I have to go for now. My next hub is waiting!!

Claire Tully: You too Nell. Joseph, I'm so sorry! You did an awesome job!! I feel bad for what I just said. Maybe these "northumbrian" and "Kentish" got in the way! Huh, Do you want to give me a real kiss?

Joseph: Yeah but, what about my fans, and my Girlfriend?

Claire Tully: Well, you said this is just a hub. So come on! Give me a kiss from the other side of the pond! I will pretend to be your new French girlfriend, your damiselle in distress, your new young french resistance fiancèe... and you my American G.I. from Omaha Beach!! Just close your eyes mon cheri!

Joseph: No comments (Just do it!!)

Interesting journey! The exercise factor with Claire and jogging must have been exhausting. I'm weary just thinking about it, and thinking about it, and....

Great Job!

Morning Bobbi. Well we can come up with stories and keep ourselves entertained. Claire is a cute model. She is just 5,2" Can you imagine? Her accent is truly charming. Thanks for your continuous support!

@Rcrumple, You sound like that rabbit and its commercial, you just need a hard smack behind your neck, just to calm you down. It was a wonderful Journey indeed. Is amazing how the language can change from Shire to shire and from ham to ham. Thanks for leaving a fun commenting. Yeah! We got exausted writing this version. Could've been a longer hub if we've cover 3 cities more.

Joseph, could you give Claire a call and ask her if she would exercise with me???? I could use some good tips!

Very funny; those women are gorgeous but of course you don't need me telling you that. You know them quite well already.

Loved it buddy; have a great Sunday back East.

Thanks for the fun commenting Janine. You made me smile and laugh! Thanks so much for stopping by. You always making our day.

Billy, believe it or not, I got in touch with Claire by those accidents from the net. She was kind and didn't mind talking to me. That's why I know about her and her Corker Irish. Thanks billy!

Morning Mary, Well these are mental rantings that take us all over the world. Nell came to our mind at the last second. Hope you have a nice and productive week.

@ NellRose, Lol! You rock! I will love to see London with hubbers like you or Lesley and Molometer. This was fun to write. Thanks for the smiles!

@Eddy, We got you with this one, huh? Ended up with a headeache, after knowing that British English has so many reagional dialects. Just to think of learning Bristolian, Irish or Scott make me think of going back to college. Thanks my friend!
