Happy Day Speakies:
It is sunny hot and humid morning here in Florida with more rain on its way later in the day. I wish we could share some of it with the folks up in the corn belt on our country, but we have no control over Mother Nature.
Last week Roe and I started to watch the reruns of the old Alfred Hitchcock Presents and I really got hooked on them. I remember watching this show back in the sixties when it came on Sunday evenings. Today I honor Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock born this date in 1899. He was a film director and producer and pioneered many techniques in the suspense and psycho thriller genres. Many of this films had twisted endings and plots and always featured violence, murder and crime. If you are a fan this suspense master you'll catch a brief glimpse of him in all his films.
Today we also celebrate one of my favorite past times as a kid growing up, yes "WIFFLE BALL." We played it in parking lots, on the not so busy streets and even in the school yard of the Boy's Club that I belonged to. My favorite bat was the stick style and ball of course was the one that had the holes in it. When you pitched you could throw magic with that ball and the sound was so distinct like a high sounding whistle. The Wiffle Ball and Bat set is still around today and who knows maybe your little ones might like to take a swing or two.
Today we also have to honor "FELIX THE CAT" that great comic, cartoon and TV star.
Felix first starred in the comics in 1923, he later could be found on the big screen in movie theaters and finally on US television in 1953. Happy Birthday Felix the Cat.
For us ice cream lovers today brings back the good old days of Creamsicles. That nice smooth tasting ice cream bar found on a stick next to those fudgesicles, ice pops and other assorted frozen goodies. So if you see them pick up a few for the family to enjoy. Well I have to run, Wednesday's post is up in the air depending upon time and commitments. I have a special post dedicated to a very special little lady on Thursday. Have a great day and be careful out there.
