Saint Patrick's Day, 2017

1) Early-morning coffee in the dining room. Sleepily seizing the day.

2) Bibliomancy led me to Proverbs 26:18: "Like a madman who throws firebrands, arrows, and death, is the man who deceives his neighbor and says, 'I am only joking!'" But read all of Proverbs 26; I expect it will resonate with more Americans than just myself.

3) I hope someone will be at Ruggles Station selling green carnations today.
