05:21 am - Happy birthday to me
On this day in 1967, also a Monday, as the celebration of my mother's birthday wound down she went into labor and gave birth to me.

Looking over Wikipedia's entries for today and 1967, I see that I was born into tumultuous times. I was blissfully unaware of them, of course.

One of my first memories is watching the Apollo 11 moon landing. I remember Walter Conkrite and the grainy video of the first steps on the Moon. I sat close to our big console TV; it looked so big, what was happening on that flickering screen.

I have no particular plans for the day. In another hour or so I'll begin getting ready for work. erickavan has made sure that there is cake and ice cream, even while battling her lingering illness.

I just finished HS and went into basic at San Antonio. I had had hair down to the top of me butt and got it chopped way short before showing up.

Anyway large numbers of dancing rats Peter, many more to come I hope.

Happy Birthday! In 1967, I was 13 and just beginning to find out the wonderful pleasures of the opposite sex:)

And think, in just five short years (I'm guessing) you would embark upon the mistake that was your Navy career. Wikipedia tells me that the US Navy was founded on this foul day.
