Occasionally, TMP runs a special header commemorating a particular person or event associated with 'today's date'.

Wyatt the Odd is the artist who has designed all of the headers. (Thank you!)

We currently have 78 of these headers, but of course, there are more days in the year than 78.

For June, some open dates are:

June 14
June 19
June 20
June 21
June 22
June 23
June 24
June 26
June 27
June 28
June 29
June 30

Well I'll probably get DH'd again … But while I was DH'd on US Memorial Day. I asked Bill if he would post this for me … for all US Vets …

I guess being DH'd trumps honoring US Military dead ? Thanks …
