"Some" of what happened on my birthday

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.

Wow Michael, that is close. You must be psychic, being born at Christmas.

Thanks for calling me 'Lovely Lynn'. How considerate of you to be sure that your parents were able to use you for a tax deduction the year you were born...and how considerate of Kid One to do the same for you and Homer.

Isn't it amazing what we never new about our birthdates?

Patti said...

'Tis true.
And Kid 2's birthday is right before yours: Nov. 23.
He was due Nov. 11.

I'm curious...did your daughter like or resenr sharing her birthday with mom when she was young? I think it would be kinda neat but you never know with kids.

And I hate to admit it but I actually remember Tim Hardin...maybe Lynn is right and I really am OLD. :~(

I'm not psychic, but I sure do like Christmas. It's like a 2 day holiday for me ;-)

Patti said...

Joan: No, I resented sharing the day!
Just kidding. It has been fun. She is a lot like me, which is scary.

Where was I when Tim Hardin was around? Homer remembers him too!
