GOOD MORNING GUYS AND DOLLS,
I thought I would give you a little information on Birthdays, the Obits and Stuff that happened today, April 10.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY WISHES GO OUT TO:
1794 - Commodore Matthew Perry, opened US trade with Japan.
1906 - Fud Livingston, composer, I just loved his fist name.
1915 - Harry Morgan, actor starred in TV shows such as Dragnet as Officer Bill Gannon and as Colonel Potter in M*A*S*H.
1921 - Chuck Connors - The Rifleman, TV western star. Also born in 1921, vocalist Sheb Wooley. He sang that great song, "THE PURPLE PEOPLE EATER." If you don't recall the song, I'm sure You Tube has it for your listening pleasure.
1951 - Steven Segal - That beat up everyone cop in many movies.
ANGELS OR DEVILS TOOK THEM AWAY TODAY:
0879 - Louis II, "The Stutter", King of France. Did really stutter or did he chocked on a piece of cheese in the French Onion soup that he was served.
1991 - Natalie Schafer - Actress Gilligan's Island. You remember her as Eunice "Lovey" Wentworth Howell."
1992 - Sam Kinison - That loud mouth comedian. Loved him in the Rodney Dangerfield movie, "Back to School." SAY IT, SAY IT.
Personally I think the angels took them all.
STUFF THAT OCCURRED TODAY:
1947 - Jackie Robinson, the 1'st black in modern league baseball.
1953 - House of Wax was the first 3-D movie that premiered in New York City.
1971 - The first baseball game held at the new Philadelphia's Veteran Stadium. Phillies beat the Montreal Expos 4 to 1. I have to tell you about baseball memories I shared with my Dad one day.
Have a good day and remember my words, "Be careful out there."
