# CCLIV…”Joy” To The World…and Somberness…

On this 22nd day of November, I come to you with a post about not only the anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination but of the tale of the birth of my cousin, Joy Creegan.  I could bore you with stories (if I could remember vividly enough LOL) of our past…childhood memories that will always be cherished, being part of the loving family aspect in a different time, etc. but I think that I will keep, honor and cherish those for myself.

However, I would like to add that, without her (and my other cousins, aunts, uncles, and so on), I wouldn’t be sitting here recalling a glorious time on this hobby and educating the masses…happy birthday, Joy…and many happy more!!!!

As for your birthday twins, there is quite a list…late comedian Rodney Dangerfield (1921-2004), former Boston/Milwaukee Braves’ pitcher Lew Burdette {who I only mention because he is directly related to my former boss} (1926-2007), veteran actor Robert Vaughn (1932), Monty Python alumnus Terry Gilliam (1940), tennis superstar Billie Jean King (1943), and the bass player for Bob Marley & The Wailers, Aston Barrett, was born in 1946.

The guitarist for Bruce Spingsteen’s E-Street Band, Mr. Steven van Zandt (1950), former Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club bassist Tina Weymouth (1950), award-winning actress Jamie Lee Curtis (1958), actress Mariel Hemingway (1961), tennis champ Boris Becker (1967), and the sultry Scarlett Johansson was born in 1984.

Be back Monday…my “fans” may know why…
