I was 14, going into my freshman year of high school that fall.
I think there were two popes that year…yeah- John Paul I, who was pope for all of a month before he up and died; and John Paul II, who served from 1978 until he died ten years ago.
It was also the year of the last Triple Crown winner, Affirmed.
Thirty seven years ago.
Until today (6/6/15).
Today, American Pharoh became the 12th member of a very exclusive club. Congratulations to everyone who worked hard for his success!
I hope it’s not another 37 years until the next one. That will be 2052…and, if I live that long, I’ll be 88 years old.
I know, right? I’ll have outlived both of my parents and all of my grandparents by then.
I don’t even want to think that far ahead. I’ll be happy if I wake up tomorrow. Know what I mean?
I’m Stef and this is where it’s @ !~
