MIAGD: make it a great day
[Darin’s Log, Stardate 2016]
Upon wakening, one of the first things I noticed on my Facebook newsfeed was a photograph posted by Bellbrook band director, Barb Siler.
Ahhh…. Barb must have turned fifty years old, today. Hmmm…. I thought Barb was born in December, sharing the day with someone else I know.
Since, I would address it later, I went on with my morning.
I gave my on-line class their break at 9:45 AM, and scrolled through my list of birthday celebrants. I sent out the birthday greetings, and noticed Barb was not on the list.
I went to her page to send her a birthday greeting, still questioning a September vs December birthday.
More interesting discoveries…. no one was posting birthday greetings to Barb? What?
[If you are presuming that these lack of Trekkie experiences in any way impede my ability to command this ship/blog, you are mistaken.]
Barb is a devoted, and deeply respected, beloved music educator, and colleague to many. Even her Bellbrook band colleague, Chris Foster, had not offered his typical “solfeggio” birthday greeting.
I went to Barb’s “About” section, verifying her birthday IS in December.
Then, I saw Debbie McCutcheon’s new, temporary profile photograph noting the 50th anniversary of STAR TREK.
[If you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.]
[I intend to assist in the effort to reestablish birthday communication with Barbfleet this December.].
So, while you are living long, and prospering, don’t forget to make it a great day, Vulcan Folks!
