Things to Celebrate
Today would have been Rosemary Clooney’s birthday. I grew up watching her in “White Christmas.” She had a beautiful voice and was George Clooney’s aunt.
It’s World Turtle Day! I will gladly wear green in honor of turtles. I had a pet turtle, Henry, when I was young. I hope someone out there is dressing up like the Ninja Turtles.
It’s also National Taffy Day. Everyone should go buy some Laffy Taffy in honor of this event.
