September 26th, my 49th celebration of giving up smoking, passed by without even a thought about it on my part. A senior brain freeze maybe?

Back in the year I was born FDR was midway thru his second term, gas was 10¢ a gallon, bread was 9¢ a loaf, and a pound of hamburger was 13¢, so I guess I'm entitled to an occasional brain freeze! Of course, the average income was $2100.00, so it all equals out in the long run.

Well, now I'm looking forward to 50 years next September, and I will put numerous reminders in many places to ensure that I don't forget the Big Five-Oh.

All continues to be well here in the mid-Atlantic region of the east coast. Lettie and I have avoided COVID-19 thus far and four family members who did contract the virus recovered without needing hospitalization.

Until next time,
