January 17th

With all the hoopla and hype that the upcoming inauguration is getting in the press, there has been a lot written about Barack Obama and his family.

Something I read not too long ago is that today, January 17th, is Michelle Obama’s birthday. Three days before her husband becomes leader of the free world, she will be 45 years old.

By a strange coincidence, my friend Cynthia (the one who lived near San Diego), who died last June of cancer, also had January 17th as her birthday.

So today, Michelle Obama will be 45 years old…

And Cynthia, who was born on the same date in the same year, will not.

That pink ribbon on my sidebar? Since last June, that has been my remembrance of my childhood best friend.

Who would have been 45 years old today.

That’s all from where I sit.
