Atlanta post-show - Talking turkey.

Atlanta post-show - Talking turkey. Thanksgiving in the land of the free and Joe finds a friend.

Thanksgiving. Atlanta. Thanksgiving has no resonance for the Europeans on the tour, but "being the day that's in it", as the Irish say, we decided to have a dinner anyway. The U.S. citizens amongst us appreciated it, and hey, any excuse for a party.

After a nice Turkey dinner we all headed to a local Irish bar. Sitting with Joe O'Herlihy, the bar tender comes over and in a broad Cork accent says "are you Joe?", "er...yes", "I used to work for your cousin..." It's a global mafia, I tell you.
