...or something. In the intervening time we've lost Sir Arthur, Jeanne Robinson and John Taylor.

I'm afraid the years are hard on us and our friends. Tomorrow is Uncle Robert's 102nd.

And Happy Birthday to Peter, too.

:)

Harder on some than others perhaps - you've lost a year there. It's the 103rd. :)

Always and not to be forgotten again.

Happy Birthday, Bob. Sic transit gloria astra.

I like Sam Jones' formulation best. "...and Tuesday is usually worse."

It's another 7/7, folks, and I'm just thrilled to be here. <fskronk> That is all.

I quit celebrating birthdays many years ago. I now celebrate surving another years. I won't say my age but I read Green Hills of Earth in the Saturday Evening Post.

I read it there, too.

Of course, that was about 60 years after publication... :D

But it is VERY fitting that today a private space ship lifted off, orbited the earth 2 times, and landed as planned.
Using new parts and technology, as far I can tell.

Just realized that this year will be the 5th anniversary of the Centennial.

Damn.

Coming up on five years ago today, the product of years of toil and strife condensed into four days of pure joy. There has never been anything like it before, and I doubt there ever will. I tip my hat to all those who made it happen and all those who drank deeply of the water of Heinlein appreciation.
