I loved that song way back when. I’ve been singing it all day in my head because my sweetheart, my honey, my love, turned 63 today. He has been a good sport to pose for my camera on many many many occasions, and he knows that every thing he does could end up the subject of a blog post.
I decided to take a look back in history to see what else happened on March 13 over the years. Here is some of what I found:
483 St. Felix III begins his reign as Catholic Pope
1519 Cortez lands in Mexico
1677 Massachusetts gains title to Maine for $6,000
1852 Uncle Sam cartoon figure made its debut in the New York Lantern weekly
1884 U.S. adopts Standard Time
1923 Lee de Forest demonstrates his sound-on-film moving pictures (New York City)
1949 U.S. Mens Figure Skating championship won by Richard Button
1961 Pablo Picasso (79) marries his model Jacqueline Rocque (37)
1965 Jeff Beck replaces Eric Clapton of the Yardbirds
1969 Apollo 9 returns to Earth
1992 FCC rules companies can own 30 AM and 30 FM stations (formerly 12)

Happy Birthday, honey!
