So, sure, it's the anniversary of the birth of witty writer & cartoonist James Thurber in 1894. The doomed Mary, Queen of Scots was born on this day in 1542. Lost, countless years since legions of souls came into the world through the door marked 8th of December.
25 years since my sweet Bassett Hound, my first dog, Ruby was born. And 32 years since my kid brother Tim called me to say that John Lennon had been murdered.
