Born today was Edward the First
Not England's best king or its worst.
A war with Robert Bruce he 'd lose
After getting rid of all Jews.*
*He issued an edict expelling all Jews from England in 1292.
I'm Jerry Partacz, happily married to my wife Julie for over 40 years. I have four children and six 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".
