Posted on 09/17/2014 8:37:36 AM PDT by Vendome
So Im at an observance of Constitution Day last week and in a contest, testing our knowledge of the constitution.
Now, Im gonna win and Im one question away.
The moderator asks: Besides Constitution Day, what other day is celebrated concurrently? .
My Birthday! I yelled.
Wrong Answer replied the Mod.
You call my Mom on Wednesday and tell her that! I protested.
The Mod says Anyone know the answer?.
So Im looking around and . . . Nothing.
No one answered.
I turned to the gal behind me and whispered Citizenship Day and she yelled out the same.
Afterward, many people came up to tell me Id been robbed and should have won.
Moms not gonna be happy when she hears her son got dissed I mused.
We all laughed.
Happy Birthday to me.
Happy Constitution Day.
Happy Citizenship Day.

Hope you had a good birthday, and BIRTHDAY CAKE!
I’m only 51. It’s not like I have Alzheimers...
Reminds me of going to Independence Hall, Ceasar Rodney and touring the George Read House, in New Castle, Delaware.
Two states willfully engaged in false advertising.
Well, “Constitution State” ought to be given to Delaware.
However, they have appropriate motto:
Ceasar Rodney rode some 80 miles, in the rain, to reach Independence Hall and ensure Delaware was the 1st state ratifying the Constitution.
George Reed of course was another signer.
You have to visit his home.
Beautiful red brick, stupendous lawn and an awesome view looking at the “Strand” or Delaware River.
Happy birthday, Vendome.
I picked this as my screen name years ago since it is my birthday as well. September 17th was and is an auspicious day!
