Two oddities arrived together in 1835. Halley's Comet & me....

Watching the "meteoric rise" in the price of gold had me reflect. Going from $1835 to $1910 took merely 3 trading days. I paid little attention to rising & falling, for we all do that. I reconed back to Halley's Comet & my scheduled visits spanned from 1835 to 1910. Many a man might consider that span a lifetime. My, how comets, meteors, & time can fly! I wish I could.
