ELEPHANT = 13 Points!

The first elephant ever seen in the United States arrived from India today in 1796. No, I was not there.

Today’s birthdays of interest;

–          Alfred Mosher Butts was born today in 1899. Mr. Butts invented Scrabble. Some people go through life using a lot of four-letter words, but for Scrabble-players like me, we live to search for seven-letter words and a 50-point bonus. I hope you’re pleased with yourself Mr. Butts!

–          Beaver Cleaver’s big brother Wally was born today in 1945. In television’s “Leave It to Beaver” actor Tony Dow was borderline-scintillating (or not) as he corrected and protected the Beav…or not.
