One More Day.....

Remaining...of youth...each year gets harder and harder to accept...cause I know I'm getting closer and closer to another century of age! Of course, you are only as old as you feel...geez~I've never been to the Dr. so much as I have in recent years, since my 40th B-day. Baby brother turns the BIG 40 this year....he wants no party~no recognition of it being any different than past B-days...well, guess what Baby Brother~~Big Sister isn't listening! Remember the HELL you gave me on my 40th? Black balloons....over the hill jokes? Hee-Hee!! Payback is HELL!!

This is The Birthday Meme. It isn't knitting, but it's educational. Go to Wikipedia and into the search field type the month and date of your birthday (not the year). Then share with the world:

Three events
1--1782 - George Washington orders the creation of the Badge of Military Merit to honor soldiers wounded in battle. It is later renamed to the more poetic Purple Heart
2--1794 - Whiskey Rebellion begins: Farmers in the Monongahela Valley of Pennsylvania rebel against the federal tax on liquor and distilled drinks.
3--1945 - President Harry Truman announces the bombing of Hiroshima with an atomic bomb while returning from the Potsdam Conference aboard the heavy cruiser USS Augusta (CA-31) in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

Two births
1--1742 - Nathanael Greene, American Revolutionary general (d. 1786)
2--1963 - Harold Perrineau Jr., American actor

One holiday
BC Day - Province of Canada.

Another coincidence...my baby brother turns the Big 40 in April.

Remind your brother to respect his elders...age does have its benefits!
