Some Thoughts Along the Timeline

It’s my birthday today. What follows originally began as the body of some correspondence to a select few individuals…

Thank you for your good wishes; they are much appreciated!

I am reminded of a joke Billy Crystal used in the script for his film “City Slickers”.



Describing how his mother continues to regard him as a baby, he states, (and I’m re-working this slightly) “How’s Jay doing? Oh he’s just great! He’s 744 months today!” (If your math skills are any good, you can calculate just how long it’s been since I was born).

I share a birthday with Nigel Bruce, Charles Lindbergh, Dan Quayle and Alice Cooper.

We’re just like five peas in a pod.

Mind you, I don’t know exactly what you expect when YOU sow a garden with peas, but assuming you’ve never shelled them, this metaphor may strike you as appropriate…

Meanwhile, in lieu of a formal online celebration (which would be unseemly), herewith please enjoy the latest work from Tom Tomorrow and “This Modern World”:

Once again, many thanks and, trust me, spring is on its way!

    1. Thanks for liking my own humble little blog and a happy belated birthday to you as well, Ann!

      Those of us old enough to remember Nikita Khrushchev, Mouseketeers and the Mercury Program need to stick together!

      All best wishes for your continuing blogging growth and success,
