Aother Meme

My sweet daughter, Marni, has tagged me to do this meme because she said I have nothing else to do. Smart ass! Doesn’t she realize that my day is as full as hers? There are between 9 and 15 television shows, lunch at the Waffle House, honey do’s at the store, a nap, overtime in the bathroom and other time consuming activates that keep me pretty busy. She’s lucky I have a spare minuet to read her site, much less do these meme’s. But in doing so, I never realized so much shit happened on my birthday.

So, onto the rules:

You go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday (month and day)

Then you write down 3 events, 2 births, 1 holiday, and tag 5 friends.

Events:
1886: Mormon prophet, John Taylor, receives a controversial revelation on plural marriages that now divides the factions of Mormonism. The Dumb Ass.

1968: The musical Hair opened in London, where it played 1,998 performances until a closure was forced by the roof’s collapsing in July 1973.

1998: Google is established.

Births
1934 – Wilford Brimley - American actor
1943 – Meat Loaf, American singer (So it says!)
Also 1944 - coffeypot

Holiday
World Tourism Day

And now to do the obligatory tag.

coffindoger - Trish - Just because.
crazy cat woman - Because she is as crazy as I am.
Heidy - Because she is always unique.
Itchy - Because she lives in Virginia.
KB - Because he needs the exercise in writing on his new blog.

Later dudes and dudets.

Can I just say I love you for mentioning Wilford Brimley. He is the butt of one of my family's best inside jokes.

I hit enter to quickly.

pamela, many of the reference sources are wrong, or not completely accurate. I don't know if the roof collapsed during a performance of Hair, but you can go to September 27 and click on that reference and it should tell you about it. Since it was almost 40 years ago and I wasn’t effected, I don’t care enough to look it up myself. I just sing the songs at the top of my lungs and groove out, baby.

The husband says we can never meet up again if you're dissing Meatloaf.
