While I did a little celebrating on Friday and Saturday with my friends at Gritty's in the Old Port, my head is very happy that I stayed home yesterday. Mondays are hard enough without St. Patrick's Day falling on a Sunday. And let's face it, when we get to a certain age, we just can't bounce back like we used to.

Bob Marley and I are the same age. So it's good to hear that he also doesn't go out and tear it up anymore either. It's comforting to know I'm not alone in my decision to stay in the neighborhood and take 'er easy. Just stay home and "have the boiled dinnah."

Our friends that are the same age that did rip it hahd yesterday, are likely feeling it today.

Here's Bob's wicked funny take on "the mess out theah" that is St. Patrick's Day.
