Hahaha. But SETI is still operational, I think. NO? It must be a little strange, even though everything is A-ok with the transitions to remember an anniversary with someone else. Best to you.

Interesting mix of events...

And 58 years since a car accident that about scared the daylights out of us until we discovered everything was okay.

Sharkey, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence continues. One hopes there is such a thing, for we sorely lack in that department, I think. Remembering is good, an important part of my life; and moving forward is good as well.

Grace, there are other remarkable events on this date in a personal sense. I guess it is inevitable that multiple events share a common date, inasmuch as there are only 366 dates to correspond to an infinite number of events.

Vee, yes, the accident is part of the memory, too. Well, it got my car paid for in its entirety.
