It's Happened Again

It's happened again; I'm not sure how it keeps happening. I think it has something to do with the Earth rotating on its axis and my opening my eyes each morning.

Last year I wrote about sharing this day with the Earth, but actually, the Earth shares the day with me. It didn't get its day until 1970, I got mine a bit earlier.

I'm also quite pleased to learn from Janice Brown at Cow Hampshire that this is "Ancestor's Eve," its designation thanks to Neelix of Star Trek Voyager.

So today I opened my eyes to Mr. Maven, Zoe, and Hunter singing "Happy Birthday." Now that's worth opening your eyes and ears.

My mom's side of the family used to sing a second verse:

May the dear Lord bless you (x3)
And keep you always.

But on my ex's side of the family, they couldn't wait that long for cake, and just went with the finishing line, "And many mo-o-o-ore!"

Best wishes, fM!
