Oh by the way, folks,
Today we celebrate the birthday of Samuel Morse, born in 1791. He contributed to the development of the single-wire telegraph system, and invented the Morse Code which made single-wire telegraphy possible.
He also proposed the emergency telegraph signal dit-dit-dit-dah-dah-dah-dit-dit-dit (inaccurately designated "SOS"), because of its panicky sound when it's heard on a telegraph receiver, not because SOS actually stands for anything.
Yesterday was a very nice day to get a plot of zucchinis planted in Gordon the Garden. Then in the evening the church youth group put on a spaghetti dinner. I think the mommies did more work than the youths, but hey, whatever. Anyhow, they served some great spaghetti!
And today I think probably nothing's gonna happen, so maybe I'll plant a plot of yellow squash.
