Eat your leeks!

It's St. Davy's Day, which means you Welshmen out there need to eat a leek.

It's also collinsmom's birthday. At her age (and mine) we are less concerned with eating leeks than not springing them.

Yes, I know

I am not invulnerable;
nevertheless, I refuse to use
my age and gathering decrepitude
as an excuse to leave those things undone
which I want to get done.
"I have meat to eat ye wot not of,"
as the Man said.
