Happy 106th John Wayne!

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!

Happy 64th Dave Thomas!

Dear Dave Thomas,
You're 64 today and to celebrate today, I'm going to watch "Adventures of Bob & Doug Mackenzie: Strange Brew" and brush up on my Canadian:

1. I will end every question today with 'eh?
2. Whenever I say "abOUT", I will pronounce it "abOOT."
3. When I talk about the Purse Dog I will say she's a "wee" dog...instead of "little."
4. When I go "out" today, I'll say I'm going "oot."
5. When I order a drink at Del Taco, I'll say: I'd like a large "pop."
6. If I say the ABC's I'll call Z "Zed"
7. I'll say my "postal code" is 92870, instead of "zip code"
8. And last but not least, I'll talk about hockey and call everyone a "hoser" today! 
Happy 64th Birthday, eh?
Regards, Mrs Love

Happy 68th Birthday Pete Townshend!

Dear Pete Townshend,
You've said: "When I grew up, what was interesting for me was that music was color and life was gray. So music for me has always been more than entertainment."
And when I grew up, your's was the music I loved.  In 7th grade our music teacher, Mr Allen taught us the rock album "Tommy"...and we dissected the lyrics and looked for hidden messages...(hey, it was 1973).  I was hooked!  At night I would go to sleep listening to your albums. Today I listen to the same albums with my earbuds in, connected to my iPhone. 
Thank you for your talent. Happy 68th Birthday! Rock on, Pete!
A loyal fan always, 
Regards, Mrs Love

Happy Birthday Darren McGavin!

Dear Darren McGavin,
Every time I see the word "Fragile," I pronounce it "Fra-gee-lay." Thank you for your role as Mr. Parker in the 1983 film "A Christmas Story." Watching it was a holiday tradition for my family for years. Even on Christmases when it's just me and my husband...we still watch it!
Today would've been your 91st birthday, but sadly you left us in 2006 at age 83. I've been your fan for so many years and enjoyed so many of your roles. Thank you for sharing your talent with us.
Regards, Mrs Love

Happy 58th Birthday Donatella Versace!

Dear Donatella Versace,
You're 58 today? Only 5 years older than I am? I'm sorry I thought you were older...
You're a good example of when too much plastic surgery on the face was not a good idea. However a good example of when lipo or plastic surgery or something on those cankles WOULD'VE been a great idea!
Sorry if that sounds mean Donatella, but that's the way I see it!
Regards, Mrs Love
