I’m back from being out of town, and a day past my birthday. In addition to being the same as Satchel Paige and Ringo Starr, it’s also the anniversary of the invention of sliced bread.

I had a birthday party some time back when everyone was required to ‘entertain me’ in some fashion – the results ranged from jokes to dances to stories to the making of an orange peel man. Recent years have been somewhat less prosaic, mostly traveling to and from friends’ weddings.
