I was born in Autumn in North America, September 25, 1856. Oh, wait… no. That was my great-great-grandfather’s birthday, as witnessed by this baby announcement card to my mom from her Gram Shorts. Let’s just say I was born sometime in the 1970’s. 😉 Before I get on with today’s post, I would like to … More Today is My Birthday
