Top Of The Morning To You

Happy St. Paddy’s Day. It’s when everyone wants to be Irish but only a chosen few really are!

I need to make a clarification to yesterday’s post — I didn’t turn the big Five-Oh, that happened many moons ago — I was referring to the temperature. After such a cold and long window we finally got into the 50s yesterday and it was wonderful. A lot of the snow is melted away. People were out in shorts. It’s crazyville at the first sign of spring around here. I love it.

On the home front I am dealing with a toothache that comes and goes. When it’s here it’s horrible. I have a tooth that needs to go to tooth heaven but I’m trying to wait until after April 1 because my Flex Benefits kick in and so I’ll have money for the co-pay. Only 2-1/2 weeks to go. I can do it, I think.

I won’t be posting tomorrow morning because I will be at the hospital with my friend Lisa. She has breast cancer and is having surgery tomorrow. Of course it’s day surgery because we don’t want the CEOs of all those insurance companies to have to make only 2 million dollars instead of 2.5 million dollars, so she’s going to come and stay with me for the weekend because she can’t be by herself. I just know she’ll be okay but I’d appreciate you sending good thoughts and prayers, if you’re a praying kind of person, her way. She is probably one of the kindest people I know and I know she’s scared. So good thoughts are welcome.

So have a good St.Paddy’s day. If you are going to be “celebrating” tonight don’t be stupid or if you’re going to be stupid at least don’t drive. I’m sure St. Patrick was sober when he drove the snakes out of Ireland so you should be too.
