I don't do 'shout-outs' on this blog, I guess that is also called 'special recognition' or hellos. Heck I don't even mention my kids by their real names! A special shout-out to Lucy, Ethel and LaVerne!! Ah gheez, I just did a shout-out!!!!!! Augh.....
But this shout-out is worth it. It is Mark Twain's (Samuel Clements) 176th birthday. Just yesterday I was writing
something vaguely about 'Why I Write' and he is certainly one of the main
reasons I do so. He is and always will be America's Humorist, well
next to Fred Willard of course. He had something to say on
everything from A-Z. Of course, he wrote a few famous books, too :)
Sitting down to write everyday, he's with me. Well, the early Mark Twain, because I really don't like to wear all white. I hope that made sense. If not, there's always Wikipedia.
Anywho, Happy Birthday Mark Twain!!!! I bet he would have a lot to say from where he is right now.
