Born today was Jules Verne.
His two greatest novels still seem tres moderne.
One pivots on a wager in a fashionable club;
The other has a villain in a futuristic sub.
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".
