It’s Golden Girl Day…Again!

But it’s a different “golden girl”.

One of the brightest and funniest ladies on the planet, Betty White, was born today in 1922. She’s my hero.

I Yam What I Yam!

It’s also the birthday of Popeye the Sailor Man, a heroic – I say heroic! – cartoon character created by Elzie Segar. Popeye first appeared in the “Thimble Theatre” comic strip today in 1929. The Oyl family, Alice the Goon, Wimpy, Bluto and spinach were all changed forever.

His GPS must not have been working.

Today in 1773, Captain James Cook and his crew became the first Europeans to sail below the Antarctic Circle. The Captain’s journal that day, of course, read; “It ain’t Hawaii.”

It has to be in honor of our golden girl again. Let’s have a;

Cheers!
