Happy St. Pat’s!


Hi Richard, Mike and all you streeters! Happy St. Pat’s from here in NYC where the parade is in full swing, and the city is more nuts that usual. Case in point: I just came in from walking Sparky and either was the victim of an attempted mugging, or two really weird men were so drunk that they had the appearance of scammers on these lovely streets. Long story short, after running into me while I was walking the dog three times, the younger one hit me so hard on the back that I can still feel it, and it is a credit to working my core exercises that it didn’t knock me to the curb. I would guess drunkenness, but I was under a block long scaffolding that obscured the street, and after finishing my neighborhood walk, the same two guys were now coming the other way, even though I had walked blocks in four directions. Millions of tourists are in the city today, so I suppose the crimes of opportunities are way up? Ah, New York! So Happy St. Pat’s! It was their bad luck to pick a Chicagoan. 😉

    I’ve already had my corned beef and cabbage…and my Guinness! Lunch with Ludy and her sister, who today is Mari Guinness, then we went to a nature center where we saw a green waterfall and met a little boy who informed us that the difference between alligators and crocodiles is that “alligators turn into butterflies”.

      You and Patti and Ludy and Mari Guinness had wonderfully traditional St. Patti’s Days 🙂 We’d had enough of the weird vibe in our city yesterday, and stayed home last night and watched “The Big Short” which kind of sucked, because it reminded me of the greed of the banks.

    Happy St. Patti’s Day (that’s me)…moving on from birthdays to holidays! Will have the obligatory corn beef and cabbage and some Guinness! Most of the Chicago revelers were out last Saturday, though I expect a few of them…(me included) will be out tonight! Janis as they say at roll call for Hill Street Blues…let’s be safe out there!

      I will always think of it as St. Patti’s day now, and will think of Mari Guin as Mari Guinness! You are guys are so funny! 🙂

    A toast to the Irish and their Mediterranean origins… so Carlo should be celebrating also…
