President Abraham Lincoln was Born on the 12th Of February 1809. Remarkably, Charles Darwin was also Born on the 12th Of February 1809 – Both Of Whom Changed The World.
I Was Also Born On February 12th . . . But Not in 1809 – But Rather 1950.
Not To Knock 1950 . . . which by all Standards was a Great Year. Growing-Up in the 50’s & 60’s Was A Dream In Itself.
The Post War Peace Dividend, Drive-In Movies, Drive Through Fast Food, Blues Music, Rock & Roll – Stupendous Movies, Cutting Edge Television, Bikini’s, Mini Skirts . . . And The 302 4-Barrel Ford Mustang - To Name But A Few.
SO TODAY IS OUR BIRTHDAY – ABE, CHARLES & ME:
It Is Without A Doubt . . . That I Will Not Change The World – But I Am Doing All That I Can To Change The Limited World In Which We All Live.
WHAT DO YOU BUY SOMEONE . . . WHO IS ALREADY BLESSED?
Anne Asked Me . . . as she Always does Before the 12th Of February, what can Anne Buy For Me, or Do For Me For My Birthday – and as Always, Especially within the Last Dozen Years or so . . . My Answer Is Nothing – I have Everything I Need, and within Reason & Common Sense, I Have Everything I want.
I Have Anne, Stryker, April The Cat, The Horses, Family & Friends I Care About.
Anne & I are Living the Lifestyle we could have Never Imagined. We will Never be Rich, but we have Enough Income to Eat well and Cover the Costs of Living. And In Spite of Aches & Pains, which Comes with Age . . . Thus Far - We Enjoy Good Health.
SO ANNE SAID . . . “Perhaps We’ll Take-Off For The Day . . . & You can take a Break from Writing”, to which I answered to Anne’s Understanding & Approval, that One of the Things I Enjoy Doing The Most . . . Is Writing This BLOG, which to me, has Become One of the Greatest Gifts I Get to Enjoy Virtually all the Time.
And Even Though . . . Writing Takes A Great Deal Of Time – It Is No Punishment.
And Having so Many People who Read what I Write, and Spread what they Read to Others, Is A Privilege & A Gift Like None Other.
SO HERE’S HOW MY BIRTHDAY WILL BE SPENT:
1 – I Get to Write this Editorial to You.
2 – Anne, Stryker & I will Have an Outside Hamburger & Cold Beer at Mighty Fine Burger on the 620 & 2222. Stryker might get a Bit of my Burger, but Not a Sip of my Beer.
3 – Anne, Stryker & I will go for a Long Stroll Along the Outdoor Domain Shopping Mall, looking at all the Great Stores, Shops, Patios & Fun Things Not to Buy.
Then I'll Enjoy Coming Home . . . to Read the Comments that will Come with this Editorial.
But Before I Stop Writing . . . I Can't Have An Editorial Without Some Politics.
A POX ON THEM ALL:
As for the Apology for Democrat Moslem Ilhan Omar’s Anti-Semitic Remarks . . . She Can Take Her Apology & Shove It, since the only thing Omar is Sorry For, is or For being Forced to Apologize to Jews.
And as for Pelosi and all the Other Democrats who Kept their Mouths Shut, while Ilhan Omar Spewed her Anti-Semitic Tropes, checking to see in which Direction the Wind was Blowing, before they Made their Measured Condemnation . . . Their Insincerity or Cowardice is Breathtaking.
And what about Rashida Tlaib, the other Moslem Democrat, and all of her Anti-Semitic Statements & Jew-Hating Relationships she enjoys, along with the Idiot Cortez, who has Declared herself to be Jewish, even though there isn't a Proven Molecule of Jewish Genes in her Blood, which she Nonetheless Believes Somehow Gives her the Moral High-Ground to Criticize Israel & Promote BDS?
Have A Great Day . . . I Know That I Will.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
