birthday girl

My grandmother was born today, "Christmas in July." She was born in 1899. She was a talented cook, seamstress and an aspiring opera singer, a very creative lady. She is still missed.


A little internet cruising showed that she shares this birthday with some other interesting and creative people:

Thomas Eakins, Self-portrait, 1904.
Maxfield Parrish, Princess Parizade Bringing Home the Singing Tree, 1906, oil on paper.
Walter Brennan, To Have and Have Not, "Was you ever bit by a dead bee?"

Happy birthday, Grandma!
