Below is a Wikipedia MeMe- l was tagged by Betty over at Country Charm Sat. April 14th- l'm just finally getting around to it, oops.
Go to Wikipedia and type in the month and day you were born. (For me—Oct 15).
1. List three events that occurred that day:
A. 1987 - The Great Storm of 1987 hits France and England.
I remember that storm well but perhaps my husband even better who was living in Devon at the time. He was teaching a primary classroom (37 kids!) when the roof above them blew off. Hubby had to decide whether to stay put or lead the children through the storm to the main building- he got them all out safely, all holding hands together - in my eyes - a real hero!!
B. 1997 - The first supersonic land speed record is set by Andy Green in ThrustSSC (United Kingdom).
C. And just for Connie- 1951 - Television sitcom I Love Lucy premieres.
2. List two important birthdays:
A. 1948 - Chris de Burgh, Irish singer and songwriter- who can forget The Lady in Red?
B. 1959 - Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York
3. List one death:
A. 1880 - Victorio, Apache leader
4. Tag five friends to do the same: (ONLY If they want to!)
A. Sigrun over at Hillside garden
B. Claire at Claire’s garden
C. Bob - Gardener to the big house
D. Margaret over at Margaret’s memoirs
E. Alice at A growing delight
