Well, this sheds a bit more light on you, Eunie. Thank goodness for that poor horse who took the bullet, otherwise we might not have you and your wonderful books around!

Maddy said...

I'd stick with Ireland if I were you, or possibly Scotland.

Eunice Boeve said...

Well Andrea, I never thought about that, that the horse saved me as well. Wow! No wonder I think horses are wonderful creatures.

Eunice Boeve said...

Ok Maddy, I'd love to visit Scotland too. But my ancestors came from England and I'd love to visit Cornwall, especially the Truro area where my dad's father's family came from in 1840. My character in Crossed Trails disquises himself as an Irishman, which has nothing to do with visiting the place. :-)

Arial Burnz said...

Used to live in England, so GREAT place to visit. My hubby and I are planning to move to Ireland, so I'm in complete agreement with your holiday location choices! LOVE that strange family fact and the fun family history of where your dad's family came from. Thanks for sharing Eunie and Sarah!

LisaRayns said...

I would love to go to any of those places. I've never left the US.

Arial, You're planning to move Ireland. I would love that!

Amy said...

6 sibs? Please tell me only one of them is a brother. LOL Great to learn more about you, Eunice!

Eunice Boeve said...

Arial, It amazes me how some people move from country to country. My husband was in the Air Force and I sort of wanted him to stay in because maybe we could go lots of places. Hope you enjoy Ireland.

Eunice Boeve said...

LisaRayns, I've been to Rome and Mexico, and once lived in Canada and I've been in the airports in Holland and Ireland (on the way to Rome), that's it for foreign travel.

Eunice Boeve said...

Amie, I had 3 of each and I was in the exact middle. One infant bro just ahead of me died or I would have shared that middle experience with him. For years, and in some way, not rational of course,I always felt guilty about that. I've since learned the label is suvivor's guilt and there are many variations.
