Thanks, Wayne, for your message!
I attended a local "celebratory" event for the date - but we have to get back home to tend to our horse and burro ... we have folks who shoot off illegal fireworks nearby - much to the dismay and consternation of our "big guys' ears."
(What - Clint's has a "burro?" - I hear you think ... Yes - and you should ask me what my burro's name is ... )
Edward R. Burro.
I use this fact in my AMSAT presentations. "For those of you who have read my online bio, yes, I do own a burro ... "
Those in the audience who are UNDER 50 years of age think I am saying, "Edward, our burro."
But those of us who are over 50 or 60 - and/or know a little about journalism, KNOW the reference.
And so it goes ....
