Notable Births on this Day
In 1891, my great, grand Uncle Rollie Cass was born. As he would say "Well, bless your heart".
And in much more recent history, my dear friend Lori was born. In 1971 I made her my Kindergarten Christmas Angel. She has lost her doily wings and most of her straw hair along the way but the real Lori has held up much better.
I think this was one of Lori's b'day parties way back when. My childhood sweetheart David was in the middle of me and Lori. Diana and Michelle are the Bluebirds in the back.
