Nineteen Days...

...until Reaganmas.

For those of you who've not been following, February 6 is the birthdate of Ronald Reagan.

For the past three years or so, I've been observing Reaganmas both in my home - taking the kids out to eat (if only McDonald's) and talking with them about the importance of Reagan in their life today - and at work (where I bring in a plate of cupcakes or some such to celebrate the day).

Now, with Reagan's passing, the holiday takes on more importance; it's not entirely tongue-in-cheek anymore.

So I renew my quest, one of the notions that sparked me to start this blog almost three years ago; to remind you all to join me in spreading the word of our next national holiday.

Unfortunately, it is also Super Bowl Sunday this year. But I'm with you Mitch. I plan on listening to "Speaking My Mind" (Reagan's Speeches) and "In His Own Voice" (Reagan's radio addresses).

"Reaganmass", huh? Hm.

Tell you what. Since I live all of a two minute drive from the Reagan Library (it's on a steeeeeep hill that this boy ain't about to walk, maybe I can grab a cupcake myself, drive on up there and say something, I dunno, ceremonial or something.

Lemme know. Should be fun.

I'm in on this one. When does the committee form to have his image carved on Mt. Rushmore?

I share a birthday with Mr. Reagan. Top that.

Pitiful. Sacreligous. Sad. Affronting. Chagrining. Disgusting.
