"Borrowed thoughts, like borrowed money, only show the poverty of the borrower."- Countess of Blessington, Marguerite Gardiner, Irish writer and socialite (1789-1849)

On this day of shamrocks, luck and celebrating the Irish and how far we've come, I'm reminded life is too short. Praying for my Tio Freddy. He's 51 and not well. My uncle and I are only 15 years apart. He introduced me to my first Butterfinger candy bar and would tease me about getting a girlfriend. I remember hot dogs with his family and a free big bag of peppermint candy at his garage sale. He's the baby in the family of 9 brothers and sisters. Now I'm reminded life is not fair, why would he perhaps be the first to go. JMD
