On this day January 24th, 

A great friend I served with in the US Air Force, was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic and liver cancer.

Prognosis is 6 months to a year IF he has chemotherapy, less if he doesn’t.

This slapped me to the realization that many of my “problems” are so minor and irrelevant.

On this day:

April 15, 1990, my one month old nephew had a heart transplant at Loma Linda University Hospital in Southern California.  I really have to admit it was a wake up call for me to know what is truly important.

On this Day: May 10th

Walter Hagen won his fourth Open Championship, and 11th and final major championship, on May 10, 1929, at Muirfield, Scotland. He won by a margin of 6 shots with a final tally of 12 over par.  Imagine that with today's game.



On a side note, on this day in 1967, my mother went in to the first of three false labors with me before I decided to come out and see what all the fuss was about.  She has told that story to me so many times and I used to have a fake birthday with fake gifts and empty boxes and then my real one my actual birthday.  It was a tradition I looked forward to.

On this day, June 22, 1937:

An Alabama sharecropper's son, Joe Louis, knocks out Jim Braddock in the 8th round, becoming the world heavyweight boxing champion. The first African American to hold the title since Jack Johnson, Louis will remain champ for 140 months, and will later be named history's greatest heavyweight boxer.

Louis holds the record for most consecutive title defenses at this division, with 26 defenses of the world title. This is also the record for most consecutive title defenses in boxing history.

Don't know how many here from the USA would be old enough to remember this spectacular event which was broadcast to those of us here on planet Earth.

The impossible became a reality on this day in history — on July 20, 1969 — when American astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin stepped on the moon as part of the NASA Apollo 11 mission.

I was 10 years old sitting in front of the TV at my Grand Mother's house. Seems like just a few days ago. 😅
