As associate editor of our mobile home park magazine, I am responsible for several pages, including the flyer for the monthly social event.  So I was pleased when the person in charge of the July Fourth Potluck brought me a rough draft of what he wanted said.  Thank you, John.  A bit later I got around to reading the copy:

Monday, July 4, 1911

I phoned him to say that I doubted I could make the event.  Why not?  I wasn't even born then.  When I told him why, he laughed and said he wasn't, either.I asked him if he had some sort of time travel involved.  Not that he knew of.  I don't even know if July 4 in 1911 was on a Monday.

Tomorrow I'll tell all about the fun I had for my birthday.

  1. I just had a little fun with google. It fell on a Tuesday. There are some nifty pictures of Independence Day events, and ooh, a nasty heat wave.
