Awww how fun to know what happened the year one was born. I looked, and laughs it seemed lots of anger, fights, and rights were being fought in my year.Thank you for sharing.
tracy,yes it is fun to see who what where something happend in your birth year.
Yup … I saw it at Sandee’s and at Mary’s Work of the Poet … and have it in ‘drafts’ ready to post one of these days. It’s ‘kewl’ that you were born the same year that Charlotte’s Web was published. That’s one of my all time favorite books! How strange to discover that Sandy of Momisodes was born when Jimmy Carter was President … the year Stephen King’s book, THE SHINING was published. All of a sudden I’m feeling very old. Sigh!Hugs and blessings,
Storyteller,Yeh I know the feeling.
