i'd forgotten the st.patrick's day parade was today until i saw all the people dressed in green at harvard square. by coincidence i had my green shirt on as well to show my solidarity. normally these parades are wet and cold, but the irish couldn't have ordered a better day, with temperature at 65 degrees. i bumped into ed, who was chatting with john, one of his tenants. i told ed i might be getting my motorcycle out of storage which got him all animated. as long as it doesn't snow again, it's riding season for me.
