Day before yesterday was St. Paddy’s Day, as most will remember. Personally, my memories of the day are a bit fuzzy, which is not surprising, given my consumption of a significant amount of Jameson’s finest, with a Guinness or five as chasers. Suffice to say, yesterday was NO fun at all, & today, I find myself still a bit under the weather…. Ah, well, such is the price we pay for our foolishness…

Since I’ll again be hanging about here at the house, trying to recover some physical equilibrium, I’ll try to work on getting one ready for posting in the relatively near future. Maybe, if I can, a few of my Gentle Readers will return to read it…. As we have previously noted, hope springs eternal….
Meanwhile, be well, be happy, and be strange…. all are of more importance than you may know…. I’ll be back, as soon as is feasible….
See ya soon, ffolkes….
