Guess whose birthday it is today!

Well, let’s see. There’s David Bowie (1947), and Stephen Hawking (1942), and Little Anthony (of Little Anthony and the Imperials who sang, “You don’t remember me, but I remember you, ’twas not so long ago, you broke my heart in two, Tears On My Pillow, pain in my heart caused by you”) (1940), and Yvette Mimieux (she played Rod Taylor’s girlfriend in the year A.D. 802,701 in the 1960 movie The Time Machine) (1939), and Bob Eubanks (emcee of The Newlywed Game) (1938), and Shirley Bassey (1937), and Soupy Sales (1926), and Larry Storch (1923), and Butterfly McQueen (“Lawdy, Miss Scarlett, I don’t know nothin’ ’bout birthin’ babies”) (1911), and Jose Ferrer (1909), and composer Robert Schumann (1810).

Oh, yes, and this fellow, whose name escapes me at the moment. He would have been 75 years old today (1935):


  1. You mean Elvis the Pelvis, as we used to say...

  2. RWP:

    Surely you know he is not dead. He works in a MacDonald's in Iron City Michigan...seen him myself.

  3. I know, I know!!!

    It's my only son's birthday!! He's 51 years old today and since I'm counting my age backward, we should soon be the same age.

    Today is also the 45th anniversary of my father's death.

    I just checked my Weather Bug and found it's quite a bit colder where you are than here. I hope you are staying warm. I look like an Eskimo in full winter gear when I have to stick my nose out the door.
