A Guinness in springtime 

I dropped by the Witherspoon Grill this afternoon during the half-price happy hour, and put away a "cubble o' paints" of the black gold with friends. The sun was shining, and the square in front of the library was packed with people in shirt sleeves enjoying a wonderful spring afternoon. How was your Paddy's day?

First Guinness of spring

My wife has finally made the transition from WASP to MICK.

...only took 35 years!

The WASPy term for that meal is "New England boiled dinner," and my manifestly WASP grandmother made it for my Mainer grandfather (name of Donald Clifford, as Scottish as the day is long) every few weeks. I hated it.

At the ShopRite supermarket, just north of Princeton, I encountered a lovely Irish lass tap-dancing in honor of Saint Patrick's Day.

Sounds awesome. But isn't it time we--as a people--retired the phrase "shirt sleeves"?

Oranges. I ate lots of oranges. While listening to Spanish guitar music. A wonderful day.
