Oh, What Might Have Been

by Reese Turner

Even married thirty years, I’d joke, “Had I just been Irish, I would have married a beautiful redhead who owned a pub…"  My wife would immediately suggest I get to Ireland, “she might still be waiting!”

Age sixty, gave myself a golfing trip to Ireland. At airport to return, called my wife...

“Honey, great golfing, now I’m coming home.”

“Did you have any luck?”

“No. Shot bad.”

“How about the redhead with the pub.”


“Let’s give it another week!”
