Sunday, January 19 was Robert E. Lee's birthday and no, I didn't have to look it up. Happy REALLY belated birthday to both.

His wound was healing, but he succumbed to pneumonia.  Another reason for people to get the pneumonia shot.  You only have to get it once as it is good for life.  Don't know if there is a cost in the U.S. But, up here in Canada it is free.

It’s free here if you’re old.

It’s free if it saves you from dying, too!
