Thoughts on the month of March

Oh did it get to be the end of March already? Someone please tell me that the passage of time will eventually slow down again. Remember when you were a kid, how slowly time seemed to pass? I wonder if it slows down again in old age? Hmmm......

I got a hilarious email the other day from my dear friend Janie, who sends me so many genuinely funny tidbits (Thanks, Janie!) Then I got thinking about the old "In like a lion, out like a lamb" saying about March. Somehow my brain made a lamb/sheep/March connection and I thought, "Hey, why not end the month with a good belly laugh?" So here goes...(If you're politically liberal, quit reading now.)

Many will recall that on July 8, 1947, witnesses claimed that an unidentified object with five aliens aboard crashed onto a sheep and cattle ranch just outside Roswell, New Mexico. This is a well-known incident that many say has long been covered up by the U.S. Air Force and the federal government.

However, what you may NOT know is that in the month of March 1948, exactly nine months after that historic event, the following people were born:

  • Albert Arnold Gore Jr.
  • Hillary Rodham
  • John F. Kerry
  • William Jefferson Clinton
  • Howard Dean
  • Nancy Pelosi
  • Dianne Feinstein
  • Charles E. Schumer
  • Barbara Boxer

See what happens when aliens breed with sheep? This piece of information clears up a lot of things.
