Born today was Abraham Lincoln.
Two years of war with the South got him thinkin':
"While we save our Union from its dissolution,
Let's also abolish its peculiar institution."
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".
