Happy Birthday, My Dear

Mrs. Eakes is 33 today. That's right, my CPA wife was born on tax day. Tell me her career wasn't destined.

I started thinking about the significance of then number 33. 1933 was the year prohibition was repealed (well, everywhere but OK and NC). Maybe that's where the 33 on Rolling Rock bottles comes from.

Jesus Christ (by most accounts) died at the age of 33 in 33 A.D. Coincidence? I think not.

Alexander the Great died at 33, too, but not in 33 A.D.

I'm sure counting on her to outlive those two. After all, I need her to do our taxes.
