Five O'Clock Somewhere

Welcome to Five O'Clock Somewhere, where it doesn't matter what time zone you're in; it's five o'clock somewhere. We'll look at rural life, especially as it happens in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, cats, sailing (particularly Etchells racing yachts), and bits of grammar and Victorian poetry.

Oh, so somebody had a birthday!

I was reading my morning newspaper. It has a regular feature, “This Day in History,” that lists important events that have happened on that date in the past. I noticed an entry: “In 1989, Hurricane Hugo came ashore …” Wait a minute, Hugo, that one was happening when Gerald was born – Oh, my, it’s his birthday!

Wow. WMICK is 16. We’ll be having a big birthday dinner Sunday with grandparents and probably one of his uncles. So what does he want for his birthday? An iPod and a gift card for the biggest thrift shop in town!

Happy Birthday! Have you grtandparents buy you a car, Mine did. It just happened to be a barely running truck and the owner was just laid off. So Munzy bought it from him and made Dad and I drive it home. Top speed of 45.
