Light-Hearted Thor's Day

We've had a nice summer thunderstorm roll through the nation's fourth largest city today, wreaking a little havoc with the computer. Just enough rain, really, to raise the humidity enough to match the triple digit temperature...

Speaking of computer havoc-- what in the world happened with last nite's blog here?!? Some were able to read it, others were not...
Clues are still coming in, but I apologize to those who had to read the thing hieroglyphic-style, like a meant-for-your-eyes-only espousal. I reposted it in "humanspeak", but left the original because it was too darned curious (and funny! Mad as I was, I couldn't be kept from laughing!), and because I had a comment or three before I even began to have a clue what in the sam hell MAYBERRY was talking about! ha!

[ON A SERIOUS ASIDE... THOSE OF YOU WHO LIKE YOUR FIRST AMENDMENT 'RIGHT' NEED TO VISIT MAYBERRY'S SITE, AND WRETHA'S AS WELL...]

Anyhow, tonight I thought I'd pass on this bit of insight from my friend Spotted Wolf...

-The Silent generation, people born before 1946.
- The Baby Boomers, people born between 1946 and 1965
- Generation X, people born between 1965 and 1979.
- Generation Y, people born between 1980 and 2009


Why do we call the last one generation Y? I did not know, but a cartoonist explains it eloquently below... Learned something new today!



Thanks, Dennis!

And thank you all for the patience with last nite's fiasco! lol!

Have a great evening, folks!

Slainte!

My aunt and cousin were exiting a mall one afternoon. My cousin wore his pants in that fashion - at half mast. As they left the building, a matronly woman was entering. Without missing a beat, she smiled at my cousin, and in a kindly voice said "Oh, don't worry, sweetie, you'll grow into them some day" while waving at his trousers.

He pulled up his pants and never let them drop that way again.
