Today we’d like to wish my sister-in-law Cougar a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! We hope she has a GREAT day!
We’d also like to take a moment to remember that this is the day Robert E. Lee was born. Sonny might forget that today is Cougar’s birthday, but I hope and pray he does not forget that it’s General Lee’s birthday.
We would also like to recognize Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I’ve posted about this before, I believe, but it’s worth posting again. It’s a sermon of his that I’ve seen titled “Street Sweeper”. Below is a clip of it, but you can find the full version out there. I think it’s worth listening to at least once a year. I think the world would be better and more people would be happier if they did what he said here…
