Something Wiki this way comes

I know. I couldn't resist. *grins*
I got this from Tori's blog. Can't help but click folks.

So here it is. Three interesting things. Two birthdays and one death. On the day of my birth.

1861 - In Montgomery, Alabama, Jefferson Davis is inaugurated as the provisional President of the Confederate States of America. (Wow! To the tune of "I'm a little bit country..." by the Osmonds..."I'm a little bit Dixie..I'm a little bit Yankee.)
1885 - Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is published for the first time. (THIS is literary history.)
1930 - Elm Farm Ollie becomes the first cow to fly in an airplane and also the first cow to be milked in an airplane. (Only an Okie girl could love the visual this inspires. PETA...don't get your udders in a knot.)

1950 - Cybill Shepherd, American actress (I'd wear a black evening gown with orange day-glo high tops. What's wrong with that?)
1954 - John Travolta, American actor (Can you say "longevity"? Sure you can.)

2001 - Dale Earnhardt, American race car driver (b. 1951) (God bless him.)

Grins*

I gotta say, Ollie being milked in the airplane beats everything else, hands down. Now THAT'S history! *g

OMG, orange day-glo high tops!? Did she really do that? Ahhh, the eighties, gotta love 'em!
