July Second

July 2nd is the midpoint day of a common (non-leap) yea.  As you might imagine, it has a full compliment of important happenings:

Births
  • 1877 – Hermann Hesse
  • 1908 – Thurgood Marshall
  • 1986 – Lindsay Lohan
Deaths
  • 1961 – Ernest Hemingway
  • 1973 – Betty Grable
  • 2007 – Beverly Sills
Events
  • 1776 - Continental Congress resolves "these United Colonies are and of right ought to be Free and Independent States"
  • 1901 - Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid rob train of $40,000 at Wagner, Montana
  • 1937 - Amelia Earhart disappears
However, at our house today there's an even more important event that you won't find in any historical roll call....exactly 30 years ago Son Tony was born!

  2. I remembered your son's birthday as it's my daughter's today too and last year i blogged on it. Happy Birthday to your son. My daughter is spending most of hers in a room at the University taking an Entrance Exam for Law School. Sometimes I think these degrees will never end!

    1. That doesn't sound like a great way to spend a birthday, but I'm sure if she does well the results will be worth it.
