Let’s celebrate today!
I suppose we could begin by celebrating the Reds’ three-game sweep of the Giants last weekend. I keep hopin’.
On this day in 1981 MTV began broadcasting in the United States.
It’s Statehood Day in Colorado. That’s reaching a bit for us in Kentucky, but an ice cold Coors sounds pretty good on this blazing day.
We have birthdays.
- Jerry Garcia was born on this day in 1942. I’m grateful.
- “Star Spangled Banner” composer Francis Scott Key (1779) shares this birthday with another songwriter; Ramblin’ Jack Ellliott (1931). Love those guys with three names.
Our “Cocktail 4 2day” is for another birthday boy.
Author Herman Melville was born today in 1819. His most famous creation, of course, was;
