I realize that it is another great milestone of life, but more than that--another day of thanksgiving. I have a lot of things to be thankful for, starting with having been fortunate enough to have been born a citizen of the USA--the greatest Country to ever grace this old earth. From there follows the family that taught me, socialized me, and gave me a set of basic values that included the importance of continued day to day education, as well as appreciating my fellow "man".
I will be AWOL for a few days. Gonna take Pennyfeather Annie, and a Daughter/Soninlaw group over to Biloxi for some birthday fun. I have tried to reverse the course of human events and traditions by giving people presents on my birthday, rather than vice versa. It is a hellofa lot more fun, than receiving stuff.
Since I am unable to give y'all presents on my birthday, I at least want to once again express my profound appreciation to alla y'all, and say I hope to be around, bedeviling you for a long time.
