Insert coin


This is our traditional stop on the Shannon, the half way point during the odyssey to Nana’s.
We usually have a sandwich, a bag of crisps, we throw a few stones in the river, and then we have a quick game of Pacman.
I invented that one about 5 years ago, and they still request it every time we time in Tarmonbarry.
The rules are pretty simple. They can run on the yellow lines only. They cannot jump from one segment to another. Once they have started a segment, they cannot backtrack.
And I chase them while imitating the pacman sound.
They have three lives each.
They don’t tire of it.
I pretend not to tire of it either.

Xbox 1 eat your heart out.
