I thought of it yesterday when I was posting about it being a half year birthday...

ides means half of a calendar unit for anyone who isn't a Latin scholar...

then forgot about it this morning while I was posting...

it hit me again while the big red dog and I were out on our walk ;) ;) ;)

Looks like I've missed this for a couple of years so we'll drag it out...

dust it off...

and post some more!!!

The 'Ides of March' was also a 1970s band.

Their biggest hit was probably 'Vehicle':

ShorTea is another one of my favorite posters that seemed to have 'disappeared' lately...

if you're out there in 'lurker land' hope you had a great 'Ides of March' ;) ;) ;)

I was so busy yesterday I never gave it a thought until I saw the 'Today in History' in yesterday's paper (this morning actually).
