I just wanted to wish you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! this November 16th. I celebrated my 150th in September. At least I think it was the 150th. ( lose track of time because I’m on DOG TIME. That means, You take me out for a walk every two hours and I won’t do my business on your floor.) BTW, I always thought Murray the K was the 5th Beatle. He always said he was.

CHARLES GEORGE [KC5RAI – ex KCHU FM] (Dallas, TX) Subject: Belated Birthday Greetings. I forgot about your birthday, but hope you enjoyed your birthday. A lot of people were born in November. My mother was born Nov 8, 1930 and a lady friend and neighbor, Ruby was born Nov 12, 1948. I went and heard after spending some time with Ruby to the Dallas Art Museum. They had a local Jazz/ R&B band, Fingerprints. They have several CDs on Spotify. I need to update my address book, since the Holidays are coming.
