Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter were married this day in 1946. They were 21 and 18 respectively.

Now 77 years later, both are still alive and married. An All American couple.

Unfortunately, our former Presidnet has been in his death bed for several months awaiting the inevitable.

A black man who is a disgrace to his race: Clarence Thomas. He continues to prove it with his Supreme Court opinions and life off the bench. His most recent dagger in the heart of equality his concurring opinion in the university admissions case where Thomas explained the Court was colorblind. Intentionally so, intimating that color was no longer a problem in the U.S.

Me thinks the man has experienced too much “good white living.” He deceives himself.

In 1959, the movie Operation Petticoat was filmed in Key West. A World War II submarine/comedy film starring Cary Grant and Tony Curtis. While Grant was in Key West, he purchased four Mario Sanchez wood carvings.

Three years later, Grant made That Touch of Mink movie with Doris Day. The four Sanchez wood carvings were featured in the movie.

A small world.

On this day in 1865, four people were hanged in Washington, D.C. for conspiring with John Wilkes Booth to assassinate Abraham Lincoln. One was Mary Suratt. She was the first woman to be executed by the federal government.

The Middle Ages were weird and cruel. A dark period in history. The religious fanaticism of the Catholic Church and whacky medicine two primary reasons.

It has been raining a lot lately. Weather completely screwed up. Fortunate we do not live in the Middle Ages. Bad weather was blamed on the “witches.” Thousands were burned at the stake and otherwise executed for it.

We live in mentally screwy times. Will some group decide “witches” to blame for the inclement weather and renew burning at the stakes? Never say no. Recent history reveals whacky things can happen. A warning to be vigilant. Vote! Don’t let the nuts take over our government.

Experts are revising earlier forecasts. Now calling for an active hurricane season. Blame low record warm Atlantic waters.

The unusually hot Atlantic waters are being described as a powder keg that won’t take much for a storm to tap into. The hot waters being described as fuel.

The Happy Birthdays have not stopped. Still coming in this morning. Emails remain heavy, several telephone calls.

One of yesterday’s calls was from my friend Theos in Greece. He was calling from Corfu where he was visiting one of his children.

There were additional birthday greetings from Greece, South Africa, Italy and Thailand. Amazing! The most of course were from the U.S.A.

I thank each of you. It is nice to be remembered. As one gets older, a person begins to think he has very few friends. At my age, most have died or moved away.

Thanks again.

Enjoy your day!
