"...And on the ships at sea..."

The rain is raining all around,
It falls on field and tree,
It rains on the umbrellas here,
And on the ships at sea.

Happy Birthday to Robert Louis Stevenson (November 13, 1850 to December 3, much richness for only forty-four years!)

He was only 44? Jeepers, I had no idea he was so young! He definitely did leave behind a rich legacy!

I know! I kept re-doing the math, thinking "44! That can't possibly be right!"

Of course, I think I just realized the other day that Jane Austen published P&P at 37...the age I am now.

Pause for sudden "oh, wow" and then a lapse into silence...
