In honor of what would be John "The Duke" Wayne's 106th Birthday, I'd like to share a story I posted to Facebook a few years ago. I had also shared it on the KTLA Morning News....and it's all true:
"A friend of ours had the first name John and middle name Wayne. Once he was trying to get our daughter to guess his name. He gave all kinds of hints like, 'I was named after a famous western actor, etc. etc.'
She could never figure it out. Finally he gave her the answer, 'My name is John Wayne!' She looked at him completely serious and said, 'You were named after an airport???' "
Ohhhh my daughter Julie has given us years and years of laughs...and love!
