  1. Editor, your birthday is obviously a BIG deal in Oklahoma. Schools are closed today, as are all government offices and banks. You must be a major VIP!

    When I was a kid, all of that happened on my birthday and when I was 5 I thought maybe it was for me. I was born on Memorial Day when it was May 30th no matter what day of the week. Well, like everything else in this world things are done for convenience of someone, tradition be damned. At least last year Memorial Day, was May 30th, the MONDAY. And then I went back to work Tuesday, packed up everything and retired.

    Of course, I hope y’all like the picture I put on the masthead, in celebration of industrialization this Earth Day.

    This would have been another good Dirt Day Pic

  4. I’m heading for bed. My darling bride spent the last two days in NYC, because she had missed her Pediatric Advanced Life Support course when it was offered locally, and she had to get that recertification, or she couldn’t have worked after the end of the month. And the younger daughter had to go back to York College today, after a three day Reserve drill weekend. It seems like I’ve been driving all day long!

    My favorite wife brought me back a t-shirt from the Met for my very skimpy birthday present, but sometimes real life just gets in the way. Since harry Potter once got a coat hanger from the Dursleys for his birthday, I’m still ahead of him. :)
