AlmanzoBirthdayUPDATE: I was working on one of my directory posts and came across this one. It looked like the topic of a list of Ingalls/Wilder birthdays was a good one, but for some reason the formatting was terribly off. I decided I had better fix it before I moved on so I did. 🙂 I also decided to add my social media birthday cards from this year (2014) and fixed the tags and the excerpt. I hope you enjoy it.

UPDATED March 17 2017: I replaced the signature block with my current signature block.
