Cranky Large Medium reading, 31 July

Go away.

Why are you still here? Don't you have some traffic to go play in? After all, there are plenty of cars around, still, even after the trade-in offers from the feds. In fact, there are going to be tons of them around Monmouth, Illinois, if you want to play in front of a mess of classic cars that the government probably will never get its recycling mitts on. But I don't see you running off right now, so there must be something you want from me. Out with it, now, why haven't you left, yet? Oh, right, you came for a reading. And, if I give you that, will you leave me alone? Hot-cha-cha! Here you go:
You are retentive, and, as such, have a fair amount of executive ability. Many fools will seek your opinions and judgment, in hopes of profiting by them. You are frank and honest, though, so they probably won't get anywhere. You should avoid marrying in the bloom of youth... wait until you're a few months from death, and you won't be disappointed by your mate. Or vice versa.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. But, be honest, now, you're not completely miserable about it. After all, you know that there's still a dance in the old dame (or dude) yet. That puts you ahead of these people, all of whom, on this date in history, danced their last tango: Thomas Dudley, Andrew Johnson, Nicolaus II Bernoulli, Pascual Jordan, William Courtenay, Ignatius Loyola, Denis Diderot, Hedd Wyn, Antoine de Saint-Exupery, Poul Anderson, Franz Liszt, Jim Reeves, Teddy Wilson, Trinidad Silva, Virginia Grey, Onofre Marimón, Albert Leduc, Paul Eells, Robert Taft,
and Bud Powell.

Shaw Nuff it's time to go.
Happy birthday, anyway.
