The Old Editor's thirst
It appears that I will be dangerously at loose ends a week from today, Sunday, October 2. If any of my readers fancy a pint with The Old Editor, I plan to be at Ryan's Daughter, 600 East Belvedere Avenue in Belvedere Square, around five o'clock. I will be the gray-haired gentleman nursing a glass of Smithwick's at the bar. You will be a reader looking for a quiet interval to chat at leisure.

I can't think of a more congenial way to pass an afternoon. Unfortunately, I live in the wrong city. If I ever rectify the situation, I shall pass like a brief cloudburst on an otherwise fair day.ReplyDelete
