Today is the birthday of H.A. Rey
Read more by the young than the old and the grey.
His brainchild? An inquisitive monkey, and fellow
Who hangs around him in a hat of bright yellow.
I'm Jerry Partacz, happily married to my wife Julie for over 40 years. I have four children and eleven 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".
