I get a kick out of some ads on the radio. Some just make me wonder, who in their right mind, would take the bait. So, there are definitely bodies out there in their wrong minds for sure. Looking for the ultimate birthday or anniversary gift for a loved one? Why not buy them a star. Whaaaaaaa? You send the the bucks and they'll send you 'your star' complete with a certificate of authenticity. I still say whaaaaaaa? Ok, let me admit something right here and now. Call me a fool or whatever you will, but on clear, star-studded nights in winter and summer, I often find myself staring up towards the Milky Way searching for Stephen, a loved member of our family who we lost in '84. I know he's up there, but I never bought his star. When I think about him and all the great times we had, I smile, and I can be happy in a strange way... But I'd NEVER buy a star. Cripes, they're free for the taking... every night!
