Happy Birthday Sir Paul

It is rumored that 40 years ago Paul wrote the song "When I'm 64" as a tribute to his father. He wrote it as a teenager but, it wasn't recorded until 1967 and is found on the "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" album. However, McCartney, who turns 64 today, has had quite a different life than the one he wrote about in the song. He is a billionaire and a knight of the British Empire.
Happy birthday Sir Paul.
And while we are celebrating - Happy Father's Day to all you fathers.

The mayor of the city of Sandstone would like to know where Sandstone County is?? It appears they have "top notch" public servants. I like that. Here in the city of Sandstone our public servants are at best "average" with the exception of a young man who thankfully resides in my town. He is a top notch gift. kicks ass and takes names later!!

Shame on the mayor. He should know this stuff.
Sandstone County is located in north, north-central Minnesota. It's county seat is, also, Sandstone (the city), which is in close proximity to the city of Pine. The cities of Sandstone and Pine share a common border and one hardly knows when he's leaving one and entering another. Of course, some names have been changed to protect the innocent and those not so innocent!

It seems ' your ' city and the one chronicled on these pages have a lot in common. Good for you. Our Sandstone, also, has servants of dubious quality. If you ever bump into that 'exceptional' young man, please give him a handshake (and maybe a donut) for us. We here in the 'real Sandstone' always appreciate and acknowledge quality.

Thanks for your interest and if you have any further questions, please, do not hesitate to ask.
