April 23, 2014


Today, April 23rd, is the 113th day of the year.  The national day of England, St George's Day, is today, as is UNESCO's World Book Day.  More important than either of those, however, is that today is the 100th birthday of Wrigley Field, and there will be celebrations aplenty during the Cubs / Diamondbacks game this afternoon.

In 1968, also in Chicago not far from Wrigley as a matter of fact, a Wonderduck was born unto the world as well.  46 years ago today.

That siren and klaxon just sorta fit the way my brain feels about turning 46.  Ye gods and little fishes.

1 Man alive, think of the Smores you could toast around that fire! Never mind the weenies!

(Happy Birthday, man. May your forthcoming ride around the sun on this planet go smoothly.)

5 Happy birthday!
P.S.  Don't ever think you're getting old.  You can't be getting old, because you're exactly one day older than my younger brother, and if you're getting old...
