Day 3, of all things Bojon

It’s my sister’s birthday!  Happy birthday, Julie.  It’s my granddaughter Brittany’s 8th grade graduation.  She looked so pretty, and she got some nice awards and made the honor roll.  Two awesome Bojon women!  Smart, and incredibly good looking as well.

 

Slovenia has a population of just over 2 million people.  I think that there are more Bojons in Cleveland than there are in Slovenia.  Ljubljana is the largest city in Slovenia.  It had just over 270,000 people at the last census.  It’s a small country that doesn’t have a lot of people, but they are all smart and incredibly good looking as well.

 

I took a ride through Bojon Town yesterday.  Just cruised up and down the streets on the east side of Santa Fe.  Some of the houses are still in good shape.  Some look even better than when I was a kid.  There are a few that could use a quick visit from the wrecking ball, but all in all, the neighborhood could be in worse shape.  I don’t recognize a lot of the people, and there seem to be a lot of younger people.  Hopefully they realize what a gem of a neighborhood they live in and treat it accordingly.  One thing that really sticks out to me is that bulletin board on Santa Fe and Mesa.  I know someone probably had good intentions, but it looks like one of the crafts projects we used to make at Edison School Summer Recreation Program with popsicle sticks, glue and glitter.  Tear down that eyesore and put up a nice sign that says ‘Welcome to Bojon Town, the Greatest Neighborhood in Puebl0″.

 

There are over 500 castles in Slovenia.  There are many species of wildlife found there, but by far the most interesting creature I’ve come across is the Edible Dormouse.  Sounds a bit weird, eating anything that has the word ‘mouse’ in the name, but hey, we eat blood sausage, even after we saw them make it.  The first books published in the Slovenian language were written in 1550.  One was called the Abecedarium, and was a pamphlet to teach people the alphabet, and the other was called Catechismus, and was the foundation for religion among Slovenians.

 

Well, that’s it for today.  Time to go out and dig up more facts on Bojons and related topics.  One fact that I am sure of.  Bojon Town Lives!!!!  It’s right where it always was, hiding inside of the imaginary neighborhood of Eilers Heights.  If you meet a Bojon and ask him where he lives and he says Eilers Heights, he’s not a Bojon.
