ZIPPY CELEBRATES JUNE 20
GOOD MORNING FELLOW ZIPSTERS,
Taking over today from the "Big Boss" of the blog and we know who he is. I thought a history lesson of June 20 would be nice so lets see what the day has brought.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY WISHES:
First of all to all the Guys and Dolls celebrating theirs today Joey Z and I wish you a great day and many more years to come.
1909 - Actor Errol Flynn, one of my all time favorites. Star of Robin Hood, Captain Blood and They Died with Their Boots On. He was a good looking guy and quite the ladies man in Hollywood, read his bio.
1920 - DeForest Kelley, Dr. McCoy from the original Star Trek series. Better known as "Bones."
1924 - Audie Murphy, the highest medal winner in World War II. The movie "To Hell and Back", was a true story of his life. He later became an actor and starred in many western films. Died at an early age due to a plane crash.
1928 - Martin Landau, actor from the original series "Mission Impossible."
1942 - Brian Wilson, singer and leader of the Beach Boys.
1953 - My gal Cyndi Lauper, singer, "Girls Just Want to have Fun."
TAKEN AWAY TODAY:
1947 - Gangster Bugsy Siegel, shot to death in Beverly Hills, CA. The mob finds all Bugsy.
GREAT THINGS THAT OCCURED TODAY:
1791 - King Louis XVI was caught trying to escape from the French Revolution. Off with his head.
1793 - Eli Whitney, applies for a cotton gin patent. He got it.
1893 - Lizzie Borden, found innocent of murder, she had a great attorney back in those days I guess.
1948 - The show "Toast of the Town", is hosted by Ed Sullivan. I wonder if he used that phrase, "We have a really big show for you tonight."
Hope you all have a great day and I sure Joey Z will bring you up to some food holidays and other happening events in June tomorrow.
