Today's birthday is Robert Van de Graaff's
Whose electric contraption could generate laughs.
His sphere in our science lab was a vexation
But it still split our sides with the horripilation.
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".
