Whew! My glass collection is growing. I am still baffled by home many people steal glasses from pubs around here. I am almost ready to feel a moral dilemma, but it's hard to tell if I am stealing. Secondary stealing? Finding something stolen? Should I turn these in to the local Garda (police) station and collect them when no pub claims them?
Until I figure out where I sit ethically with these glasses, I'm gonna keep pickin' 'em up! On this particular day, we found what we thought might be the Golden Goose: The Guinness glass with the shaped contours and the raised harp logo opposite the printed Guinness logo. Also, not as exciting, the red Budweiser glass.

Well, on this magical day, lightning may have struck as we did find the Golden Goose, abandoned on a street corner where someone likely hailed a cab. It was even about 1/4 full of Guinness (and rainwater...) when I found it! Yay!
[edit: In the time since this post was written, we have found several Guinness glasses around Dublin, so our original Golden Goose designation was maybe a bit off. We have other glasses that are now our G.G., but we'll comment on those on this blog later... when we find them!]
