Leaping lizards ... or ballerinas

February 29th is the leap day of a leap year, but the only leaping illustration I could think of was leaping lizards or a ballet dancer in flight.  So you get both.

Folks born on this special day have official birthdays only once every four years, but I hear they celebrate on "the last day of February" most years.  Today, I'll share a story of NOT being born on February 29th.  The mother of one of my friends (who may identify herself or not) was born on this special day.  She really, really wanted her baby to be born on HER day.  My friend didn't oblige, but arrived a full week later.  Wouldn't it have been fun if mother and baby shared this rare birthday?  The press would probably have gone wild.

Two leap year birthdays would have been fun.
