“Walking Through the Park and Reminiscing”…



Watch out, indeed!  Your birthday was pretty wild.  A good time was had by all (including bystanders). Hee.  I can’t believe I’ve missed the last couple of birthdays.  I will do everything in my power not to miss any more, especially number 40 next year.  40, really? Ha, you’re old!

  • President Clinton denied having sexual relations with “that woman”.

  • Frank Sinatra and Sonny Bono died. 
  • The Bulls were still good.  That was their last championship.
