It's Friday........I sure hope that isn't news to you.......

Well look at this snowman.....he moves. See I don't remember that sort of thing when I grab them.........and then when I share them, it's like a whole new world for me..........kinda nice.

Ok, I found a column in our newspaper today......shoot, it's probably has always been there on a Friday........but again, today it's a brand new world for me today. I started to read it while I was eating my bowl of fruit for breakfast.......I know, I know, I shouldn't probably read while I am eating, since Andrew is there with me.........but sometimes it's the only time I can actually "read" the paper......again, I wander. The name of the column is called FLASHBACK and it shares all of the highlights of the entertainment world during this week in different years........so guess what I am sharing today...........


1957 Humphrey Bogart died of throat cancer.....he was 57
What an actor, what a man.....lucky Lauren Bacall.
1970 Diana Ross performed for the last time with the Supremes, at a
concert in Las Vegas. What a voice.......what a figure....beautiful
hair.1973 The last episode of Bonanza aired on NBC












1974 The sitcom Happy Days premiered on ABC







1986 Actress Donna Reed died. She was 64 and died of pancreatic cancer.



1992 Paul Simon became the first international star to perform in South Africa after the end of the United Nations cultural boycott.








2006 Eminern remarried Kim Mathers in Detroit. He filed for divorce 82 days later.....











oK, I don't know who this young man is......sorry, but he was on the list, so I included him for those of you who are young and know these younger entertainers..........
Hey guess who turned 68 today......Joan Baez.
I don't know why I share this type of trivia with you....shoot I think my font just changed on me.......I won't know until I read this on the actual blog.........see my world is just a magical place........one minute I am sitting here in block form and the next I am in italic........and no funny meds....maybe a little pixie dust. Oh back to the trivia thing..........trivia just fascinates me.........truly. I can remember trivia.........now I can't remember safe combinations, or to turn the light off all of the time......or to listen to the washer to hear it turn off.............but give me trivia and my brain is like a magnet..............what can I say, I am who I am. Shoot I've smiled today........haven't laughed yet, but smile, yes indeedy.........

Love that snowman picture:-) Like you, I save so much clipart and it isn't until I use it in a post that I remember it was animated! lol

I love trivia as well, especially when it comes to celebrities. I collect celebrity autographed photos, have done so for many years now and have over 6,000 of them so I've learned quite a bit about celebrities during those years! lol xoxo
