Lovely Lynn at A Tired Mama tagged me to go over to Wikipedia and come up with stuff that happened on my birthday, which is December 29. (You fill in the year)
The best thing that happened to me on my birthday was the birth of my daughter on Dec. 29, 1988!
There were other interesting things that occurred on this glorious day.
In 1808, Andrew Johnson, the 17th president of the United States, was born. He died in 1875. In 1936, actress Mary Tyler Moore was born.
In 1980, American musician Tim Hardin died. (I had to look him up--he was a folk/rock singer from the 60s. So I learned something from doing this, Lynn.)
As for my Today in History for Dec. 29:
In 1845, Texas is admitted as the 28th state.
In 1975, a bomb explodes at New York City's LaGuardia Airport, killing 11.
In 2002, Cincinnati's Riverfront Stadium/Cinergy Field is demolished.
