National Catfish Day!

More on that later…

But first!

Timmy’s mom (from the television show; “Lassie”) was born today in 1925. June Lockhart may be most remembered for her other “mother” role in the television show; “Lost in Space”, but she was also in the fine films; “Sgt. York” and “Meet Me in St. Louis”. But for all that, I will cherish most her sensitive, nuanced portrayal of the title role in the film; “The She-Wolf of London”. I’m funny that way.

Two basketball giants were born today.

–          Dikembe Mutombo (1966)

–          Willis Reed (1942)

I heard fireworks in my neighborhood last night.

I had to explain to my terrified dog that it was probably to celebrate Independence Day in Mozambique which is today.
