ABC WEDNESDAY--Q is for Quite a Gal


This is Gil (short for Gillian, pronounced Jill), who is a friend and former colleague of mind.  A few years back when she was 81 and then nearly 82, she traveled to India with me. She'd been twice before and so had I.  We had a super fantastic time.  Gil is Irish, and says her fitness is due to good genes and a very boring diet....

Here she is three days after her recent 85th birthday feeding her dog a biscuit, still going strong, and more fun than ever.

Bill Burke from Somewhere in Ireland will perhaps recognize her.  And by the way, if all goes well, we plan to 'hit' Ireland next spring.....

See other Qs on Mrs.Nesbitt's ABC WEDNESDAY.

Fantastic image! I like this. Is she the person who had a connection with Killybegs? Glad to hear that you will be visiting Ireland next year.

Love the image and the woman. She sounds like someone with whom I could have a good time, too.

Happy belated Birthday to Gill. So glad you two are planning another adventure. Hope I'm still going like that at 85.
