What do we have in common?

with 5 comments

So what do these people have in common?

Me, Mary Kate Leming, Carol Keefer (my sister), Ron Hayes, Lynn Kalber, Eric Weiss and Beverly Cash.

Let’s see.

Mary Kate Leming likes her stove, her husband, and being editor of her own newspaper. Well, maybe not her stove so much. She is kinda busy.

Carol Keefer likes research and mentoring Ph.D candidates.

As far as I can tell, Ron Hayes likes nothing. At least he puts up a good front. I’m sure there are people and things that Ron Hayes likes. One of the things I like about Ron Hayes is that you never hear of that. You hear what he doesn’t like. Even if he has to take a few sideways steps not to like it. The reason I like this is that I do the same thing on occasion. It stimulates conversation. It makes you think. Some people don’t like Ron Hayes for doing this. I can’t imagine why.

Lynn Kalber likes her dogs.

Eric Weiss likes his family.

Beverly Cash likes her sister, her dogs, and helping other people. She is a nurse.

I like computers, motorcycles, and having my freedom of speech back after lending it to several major media corporations for 40 years in exchange for a salary.

I don’t mean to put down Lynn Kalber by giving her the shortest sentence. She obviously likes her husband, as do we all, and cooking, and tons of things I have no knowledge of.

Mary Kate obviously likes other things, like Blue Heaven in Key West, and tons of other stuff I don’t know about.

Carol also likes her house and neat products from Apple (I taught her that) and cats, among lots of things I don’t know about.

Eric obviously likes his work or he wouldn’t be so good at it. And, of course, tons of other stuff I don’t know about.

Beverly can’t resist a dog in trouble – or a human, for that matter.

And me? I like these people. I have worked with them, or have known them, for years and never have had a bad experience with any one of them. I am honored to know them. I wish the small ways of knowing co-workers could have been bigger, but then, I’m not very social.

What we all have in common is that we were all born this week.

I challenge any astrologer to tell me why such diverse people should all be late-end Capricorns.

And I wish them all a happy birthday.

  1. Of course, you realize all the astrological signs have changed don’t you — and there are now 13, rather than 12 of them.

    All of the above folks who were born between Dec. 17 and Jan. 20 are now officially Sagittarius — or Sagittariae. Jan. 20 to Feb. 16 are the new Capricorns — or the Neo-Caps, as we call them.

    It’s science Gosh Dum It! Don’t you guys read the newspapers or internets down there! Do you have no cable news to bombard you by the hour with the news that the earth has wobbled. Wobbled I tells ya! The stars have shifted and we all need to adjust our personalities accordingly.

    And now — shit — it turns out I’m not a Gemini anymore, but a Taurus. What the hell is a Taurus anyway.

    Ah Jeez! It’s . . . bullshit! The horror. The horror.

  2. Hey, isn’t that kind of an upgrade. I mean, going from a goat with a fish tail to a man with a horse body? I kinda like that. And it fits better with World of Warcraft.

    But since I was a Capricorn for so long, maybe that means I’m in a one generational mix.

    Maybe I’m really a Sagicorn.

  3. I guess Sagicorn might be okay, but I’ve been a Capricorn for so many years, I think I’ll stick with it, too. Happy Birthday on the 19th!

  5. So I am still a capricorn on the cusp, just different cusp. Doesn’t matter, I prefer the Chinese system, much cooler to be a black water dragon. Put as much faith in that as.. well better not go there.
