# CXLVI…”If I only had a brain…”

Although the title could obviously refer to some of the people that I know personally, it is actually because it is the birthday of Ray Bolger, whom, of course, played The Scarecrow in the original “The Wizard of Oz” (1904-1987).  Also, it is the birthday of American pianist Johnnie Ray…yes, the same Johnnie Ray at the beginning of the classic 80’s smash “Come On Eileen”.

Baseball Hall of Fame southpaw Willie McCovey celebrates his 76th birthday today (1938), actor Sal Mineo, who played opposite James Dean in “Rebel Without a Cause” (1939-1976), singer-songwriter Jim Croce (“Time In a Bottle”) {1943-1973}, as well as singer Frank Sinatra, Jr. (1944), superstar rocker Rod Stewart (1945) and rock diva Pat Benatar was born in 1953.

The guitarist for The Scorpions, Michael Schenker, was born on this date in 1955, “The Fairly Oddparents” creator Butch Hartman in 1965, and, in an odd twist because I still have his autographed photo, former WCW superstar Buff Bagwell was born in 1970, former WWE superstar Brian “GrandMaster Sexay” Lawler in 1972, former boxer Felix “Tito” Trinidad (who I saw get whipped by southpaw Winky Wright) was born in 1973, and current WWE diva Tamina Snuka (whose father gave me his autograph at the same show as Buff Bagwell…yes, I have Superfly’s autograph!!!) was born in 1978.

Thank you for reading…be back soon…
