Here I go on and on . . .

Continuing with the New Orleans memories, here's wishing Happy Birthday to Allen Toussaint (born January 14, 1938) an American musician, songwriter and record producer.

A birthday salute to Hugh Lofting (January 14, 1886 – September 26, 1947) a British author known as the creator of Doctor Doolittle. After being seriously injured in World War I, Hugh Lofting moved his family to Connecticut. Do take a few moments to flip thru the flipbook The Story of Doctor Doolittle keeping in mind the period it was written.   Which Dr. Dolittle portrayer is your favorite, Rex Harrison or Eddie Murphy?

I am working on another blog with Mort Walker's The Best of Times magazine.  It is a lot of fun, come join me.
