I wasn't the only one born in 1953. So was the Chevrolet Corvett.
Kamsin from Fearfully Made has tagged me for 'What Happened on Your Birthday'? This entails going to Wikipedia to find 3 events, 2 birthdays, 1 death and 1 holiday that happened on your birth date - that is, month and date (not necessarily the same year). Then you must tag 5 other bloggers.
On my birthday: 25th June
... in 1876, the Battle of Little Bighorn happened, in 1949 Bugs Bunny was released in theatres in America and in 1950 the Korean War began. (It seems Bugs Bunny was a little light relief between wars.)
George Orwell, author of 'Animal Farm' and '1984' etc., shares the same birth date as me, as does Carly Simon the American singer, probably best known for her song, 'You're So Vain'.
Colonel Custer died on my birth date (see ref. above to the Battle of Little Bighorn.) And so did Jacques Yves Cousteau in 1997. (I chose two because I figured Colonel Custer was a given!)
And apparently it's ... ta-dah - National Catfish Day on my birthday. Who'd-a known?
The five bloggers I tag are : Remiman, Avus, Herhimnbryn, Becky and Camille.
