Senior Spotlight for Feb. 20, 2012

Presidents Day.

For me, good old Abraham Lincoln and George Washington lead the way with all other presidents just part of the list.

We used to memorize the names of all presidents and the state they came from, party affiliation, terms in office, etc.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt was in office when I was in school, but I kept up with the presidents up until Richard M. Nixon.

I still kind of do, but not as vigorously. Too much stuff is out there I really don't care to know, I guess. As long as they do the job they're elected to do, I'm OK with them.

Happy birthday to Pamela Tabor, Will Ping, Bob Myers, and belated happy birthday wishes to Jerin Simpson, whose birthday was Feb. 18, and Irene Eckert, whose birthday was Feb. 12.
