Today is Mrs. the Poet’s birthday. She’s a bit on the old side having memory of all the characters on “The Howdy Doody Show” from when it was on TV the first time. I’m only old enough to remember the Captain Kangaroo premier and JFK’s funeral on TV, Howdy Doody is just a bit before my time. Actually I could have remembered that show except for being out of the country when it was on… Anywho, we celebrated with delivery chinese food and cheesecake, and I bought a special bottle of wine for Mrs. the Poet’s dinner. It cost a whole $0.75 at the corner grocery store 😉 (and I paid for the dinner).
