1. I ended the day at Billy Mac's for a prime rib sandwich and couple of T and Ts. I hadn't seen Cathy since she began taking Thursdays off to compete in her pool league. It was great to see her again, but little did I know that she's from Massachusetts and is a Celtics fan (and Red Sox and Pats). The Celtics were on television, depleted, resting the big guns, playing without Doc Rivers after he got kicked out, so nothing was going well for the C's, but it was sure fun getting in a few snippets of Celtics talk as Cathy whizzed by, making drinks, cleaning off plates, taking food out to customers, washing her hands, encouraging the kitchen, in short, keeping the restaurant under control.
