Happy Presidents Day!

(Not all presidents, just the two best. Although wasn’t it better when Abe and George had their own days? Nothing to be done – the future marches on, eyes closed.) Here’s something from Washington’s farewell address. Makes one think.

Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.

    Good morning, HOH!

    Thank youse all for the birthday wishes!

    Belle Starr: I do believe that you had something to do with the very sparkly ice cream cake that I had on my birthday. I know you know that the key is always under the mat! :^)

    Teddy RR: I could never be mad at you!

    And speaking of George Washington:

    Happy belated birthday and Happy 30th anniversary, Wose!! Double celebration!

    Mom has started rereading the Andy Carpenter series. She reread the Dogleg Island series by Donna Ball last week. She is in reading mode. That meant she was up late last night vacuuming and mopping the house after 2 hours of sleep. And all us cats were zonked this morning. We don’t sleep well when she is doing housework. Too much activity.

    I deleted part of that sentence. She was up late vacuuming and mopping and is now at work after 2 hours of sleep.

    Yes, it was a Sad Year when Washington’s and Lincoln’s Birthdays were condensed into one day. Sob.

    WosenGrizz! Happy 30th!! Celebrate like it’s 1988!!!

    Thanks, BooBear, for the birthday and anniversary wishes!

    Bear: Yes, it is a shame that Washington and Lincoln’s birthday have been combined into one. I have a calendar with photos of Boston. Lincoln’s birthday is notated, but not Washington’s. What is up with that?
    Thanks for your anniversary good wishes!

    Interesting quotation from Washington.

    Happy Birthday and anniversary to Rose.

    Good morning all.

    Bellé, That is an excellent idea…an all month celebration for Rose’s birthday…we hereby delegate February as her birthday month!

    Dawson: DFW was the 4 hour portion of what should have been a nonstop 3 flight home from the midwest for No.1 son. We know the HOH can relate to this type of convoluted itinerary. Fortunately, this one didn’t also have an added 4 hour layover.

    Wose: you must love the month of February: Valentine’s Day, your birthday AND your anniversary. At least it offsets the drudgery of any blustery winter weather.

    Went shopping for some food I can eat. ha ha
    I think I am losing weight
    Good day all.

    Hello,y’all, remember me? I,too,have been watching the Olympics. Love ice dancing. I have also been on a reading binge, which I hate to admit to all you highbrow readers that I have worked my way through 25 _JD Robb’s. Nothing worth mentioning has been going on here. Hope you all are well. Have I missed anything important?
