Happy Feast of Saint Patrick!


It is a not often mentioned benefit of being a Slacker that we have our own patron saint! Observing his day should be a most solemn obligation and time of jubilation!

It's a good time to express my gratitude that Pat managed to get through the lung disease that he had back in 04.

Would love to have been able to but all the pubs are closed. Had to settle for a wee dram of single malt.

Tipped two 11.5oz bottles of Guinness Extra Stout, so a bit more than an Imperial Pint. I know there's some Foreign Extra Stout and Antwerpen somewhere in the back of the fridge, but I didn't want to dig that far. The regular Extra is my go-to, and it was good. Thanks for the well-wishes.
