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!)
