|Astronomy Picture of the Day|
We are just getting ready to experience some warmer weather for a change, and everybody is excited, since we've been much colder than normal for the entire month of February and the first part of March. It's about time. This means that all those patches of ice that have bothered our hikes will soon be history.
My baby brother turns 60 tomorrow, which astounds me. I remember the day he was born, in Texas, when I was sixteen. I remember dropping an ink cartridge that day in school. In my mind's eye, I can still see the dark spread of black ink on the tile, thinking that it figures: it was Friday the 13th. Now it seems like it was a lucky day after all. Happy birthday, dear brother!
