About 2 o’clock I stopped by Griff’s, already tented for the St. Patrick’s week. (Done Griff’s once on a St. Patties, don’t need to again.) On Saturday, they were having an Irish Stew cookoff. There were four team. Some friends of mine were first timers, so I stopped by to see how they were doing. Of course, one of the other teams had some people I know from about town – Catbirds regulars.
At 3pm was the 1st birthday for Haley Hamel, daugher of Todd and Kelly Hamel, my step-cousin.
