Birthdays and Outfits...

American painter James Whistler was born today in 1834. I love his paintings of women.









Nikola Tesla has a birthday today (1856), and as you may have noticed, google has taken notice. As they say, "Without Tesla, most people think we would not have had electricity as early as we did."

Today is the birthdays of two actors who starred in two of my favorite movies. Boxer Jake LaMotta is 88 today (1921), who you may have heard of from the movie Raging Bull; Actress Sue Lyon in 63 today (1946), who starred in the original Lolita movie, which ranks pretty high on my list of favorites...





Here, as usual, you can see my dog, Charlie. He was anxious to be in the picture, but ran away once the camera flash scared him...
