Born May 26 was John Wayne,*
Western hero, right as rain.
Quintessence of American.
His best role was the Quiet Man.

I'm Jerry Partacz, happily married to my wife Julie for over 40 years. I have four children and seven grandchildren. I'm enjoying retirement after 38 years of teaching. I now have an opportunity to share my thoughts on many things. I'm an incurable optimist. I also love to solve crossword puzzles and to write light verse. I love to read, to garden, to play the piano, to collect stamps and coins, and to watch "Curb Your Enthusiasm".
