11 years ago (less 9 days) I had a stroke that I will never completely recover from.
34 years ago we went to the hospital for the birth of my first child, who was born 3 days later.
50 years ago, that summer men landed on the moon and the Mets won the pennant.
61 years ago, my mother missed attending the Giants game because I wanted to be born. (And she never let me forget it!)
I am a child of Heavenly Father. That makes me worthy.
I don’t normally celebrate my birthday. It always seemed to be a magnet for unfortunate events. But I decided that if I made it to my 50th birthday, I would celebrate vigorously that I beat my Mom’s curse and might the same chances as anyone else to live a long life.

A feature of WordPress 5.1 is that it complains to the site administrator if it detects that it’s running on an older version of PHP. Upgrading PHP requires the participation of my hosting provider, so I’m going to start that process. There may be some downtime involved when we do get to the actual upgrade.
