On this day in 1969, former resistance fighter Jacques Chaban-Delmas became the Prime Minister of France.

Oh, and I was born.

I am now a very old child. A child with a beard and a mortgage and far too many memories, but still very much a child.

In other milestone news, this blog got its 5000th comment Monday (compliments of Ms. pallasathene8).

You're 4 months older than I. You, however, were conceived during the Summer of Love.

hey, happy birthday, man!

just so you know, I've been following your blog for...hmmn. not sure. but it's been rather a while and I have to say, I'm glad you're out there. I always enjoy reading these glimpses into your (and K's) lives, I find your writing fresh, insightful, witty and just solid as hell. so: happy birthday, man. I'll take your word for it as to whether you're still "very much a child," but damnit, I was born in '71, and I'm right there with ya. I know just how you feel. how *did* we get here?

Happy Birthday to you sir...I'm just curious as to why you're giving me a present.

I mean, really, you shouldn't have--this is supposed to be your day!

Happy Birthday! I didn't know you were a class of '87 vet like myself. Are you going to your 20th HS reunion? You'd have to drag me kicking and screaming to mine...

Heh... some people were trying to make the 20th happen, but plans collapsed because they couldn't drum up enough interest.
