I've always felt my birthday was special. Since being an employed adult in 1972, I've always tried to take off Feb 29 to celebrate. In 1972, it was the warmest late Feb on record in the NY/NJ area as I enjoyed an afternoon of shopping in 70 degree weather. Four years ago I was stunned to be told by a friend that century years were not Leap Years. I ran to the library first chance I got to research that upsetting prospect, my "real" birthdays truly mark the rhythm of my life. I was relieved to discover that we are all fortunate enough to get the unusual privilege of having a Feb 29th on this century year. Too bad to those youngsters out there who will miss a birthday in the year 2100!!!!!!!!! I have met a few other Leapers, one I knew as a child was the same age, we knew each other through Sunday School. Mary Jo, are you out there?
