On this day, 1962 a birthday salute to U.S. President John F. Kennedy took place at Madison Square Garden, New York City. The highlight was Marilyn Monroe's rendition of "Happy Birthday". She wasn't standing over a steam vent but the performance was 'warm' to say the least. President Kennedly replied, after the performance...Kennedy responded to her performance with the remark, "Thank you. I can now retire from politics after having had 'Happy Birthday' sung to me in such a sweet, wholesome way." Odd the way that things can happen. My thoughts go out to the Kennedy clan today. Maybe the old adage 'the more the merrier' might fit. The lawns and gardens in Chester County, PA should look lush in a few days as the rains have been falling almost ocnstantly. If you have a friend or family member in need, be their umbrella. You never know when you may need yours and find that you have left it in the closet. Oh, and if you are going to be an umbrella, be the best. "Louis Vuitton Umbrella" shown.
