The Anniversary

No, not the 9/11 attack anniversary. Today is my parents' 43rd wedding anniversary. Which also means I was conceived on a beach somewhere around Hermosa or Redondo Beach, CA, 42 years and 6 months ago. Wonderful day to have an anniversary isn't it? I'll be calling them sometime in the morning and wishing them happy happy. Dad was stationed at Camp Pendelton. My Mom was an operator for AT&T who happened to be staying with my Dad's niece, Carolyn. Dad called to talk to his cousin and she said he should come up and meet her new friend. Funny thing was, Mom and Dad are the same age and had gone to rival high schools in Illinois. She was a cheerleader and he was a star football player. So undoubtedly they had seen each other at football games when their schools played but they had never met each other. Then one weekend of fun, booze and sin and I was conceived.

Peace,

Wander

I'm surprised that 9-11 hasn't been turned in to a national holiday. Give it time :/

Yeah, I'd imagine they will. I'd heard the reason they didn't make 9/11 the date was they wanted to decide on a date that would honor all Americans killed in Terror Attacks such as Oklahoma City and etc.
