Birthdays And Anniversaries For May 8th + Iris Day
If this is your birthday, congratulations! Three names in country music share this date with you. Ricky Nelson, born in Teaneck, New Jersey in 1940. Carried into the limelight through his role on TV's "The Adventures Of Ozzie And Harriet," he gains success in pop music, but also launches four Top 10 country hits in 1958. Jack Blanchard, born in Buffalo, New York in 1942. He marries Misty Morgan, with whom he gains a novelty hit with "Tennessee Bird Walk" in 1970. Happy 73rd, Jack! Drummer Del Gray born in Hamilton, Ohio, in 1968. As a member of Little Texas, he plays a key rhythmic role in "God Blessed Texas," "Kick A Little" and "Life Goes On". Happy 47th, Del!
This is Iris Day!
Today we celebrate these beautiful and attractive late spring bloomers. These flowers are very popular among homeowners and gardeners. With a little luck, you may have Iris blooming in your flower beds today. If not, go to a floral shop to buy some Iris to put into your favorite vase.
