"Why, you look don't look like a day over 30!"
Seriously, this Friday marks the 175th Anniversary of the first public use of Morse Code. Interestingly enough, May 24th in 1844 was also a Friday.
The Smithsonian Magazine has an article about it - https://www.smithsonianmag.com/innovation/morse-code-celebrates-175-years-and-counting-180972248/
It's a pretty good article for those not versed in the Code and its history. The author claims to have a connection with Amateur Radio, but a search of his name on QRZ didn't prove to be conclusive.
