It's been a great day.

I was productive at the office, knocking out two lengthy, in-depth stories for the weekend. I took off from there at my customary time, worked outside, painted a cabinet I'm refinishing while listening to Pat & Ron call the Cubs on WGN. Made myself a tasty toasted ham, turkey and cheese sandwich with lots of fixings for lunch. It's a gorgeous sunny day. And now I'm watching the rest of the Cubs game on television -- and they're winning (Correction: They were winning when I started this post. The Reds have just tied the game.)

But underneath it all, the memories of this date never cease in my mind ...

And it hardly seems like its been as long as eight years ago, making it hard for me to fathom some students remember little of it ...
