The Feast of Saints Peter & Paul ~ June 29th


The Feast of Saints Peter and Paul, or properly the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, is a feast commemorating the martyrdom at Rome of the apostles St. Peter and Paul of Tarsus, observed on June 29. The celebration is of ancient origin, the date selected being either the anniversary of their death or of the translation of their relics.

Today is also the birthday of former roommate Egon Ross Mang. I believe he's living in Portland, Oregon now. We went on a holiday to Germany when I first started working for Customs in 1983. We lived together for nearly four years -- in the time between Gary and Dennis.
