I got tagged on two memes… so I thought I’d post both of them together. I’d like to tag sinistertiger, ewoh nairb and tillerman for these two memes. I’d like to tag sinistertiger, ewoh nairb and tillerman for these two memes.
The first meme is the Birthday meme…where you go to Wikipedia and enter in the month and day of your birthday and pick three events, two births and one death that occurred on the same day of the year you were born.
The second meme is very simple. Just write about where you were at three points in time: one year ago, five years ago and ten years ago.
On my Birthday

1917 – Finland declares its independence from Russia.
1947 – The Everglades National Park in Florida is dedicated.
1285 – King Ferdinand IV of Castile (d. 1312)

1882 – Alfred Escher, Swiss politician and railroad entrepreneur (b. 1819)
Where Was I?
Where was I one year ago?
I was living in Virginia, getting ready to move back to New England. Packing to move is a horrible thing… as is moving in general. I’m glad I don’t do it often.
Where was I five years ago?
I was on a trip with Gee, to Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard. It was our last trip together. Cape Cod and the Islands was one of the four places Gee wanted to see before she died, and the only one we were able to get to.
Where was I ten years ago?
I was living in Missouri, probably out fishing with my friend Rob. He and his wife, Dawn live in western Missouri. I wish they lived closer too.
