I have been tagged by Snow White (http://www.blogger.com/profile/04154472411277181939 to tell about the day I was born. She is so sweet an innocent, who knew she would tag me. I was too young to remember being born but I hear it went something like this:
On the day I was born.
The nurses all gathered around.
They gazed through the wide window,
At the new joy they had found.
The head nurse spoke up.
Said leave this one alone.
She could tell right away,
That I was bad to the bone.
Well it sounded familiar anyway (Thanks George T)
Actually here are some things in history that happened on my birthday which is July 27. (I forget the year) I won’t tag anyone else but would love to hear from anyone else who would like to follow suit.
1214 - Battle of Bouvines: In France, Philip II of France defeats John of England.
I don't know how to pronounce that name so I will call it the battle of cows.
1689 - Glorious Revolution: Battle of Killiecrankie ends. Just who was crankie and why did someone want to kill him?
1866 - The Atlantic Cable is successfully completed, allowing transatlantic telegraph communication for the first time. Wow have things changed.
1940 - A Wild Hare is released, introducing Bugs Bunny. I still love BB.
1974 - Watergate Scandal: The House of Representatives Judiciary Committee votes 27 to 11 to recommend the first article of impeachment against President Richard Nixon: obstruction of justice.So let me get this straight, you can get a BJ in the whitehouse but not wire tap? Man I love America.
1996 - In Atlanta, Georgia, Canadian sprinter Donovan Bailey set the 100m world record of 9.84s +0.7 m/s wind during the 1996 Summer Olympics. I could do that....if I could run fast. :)
These are the only famous people I could find that were born on my birthday.
