Born near Cardston, Alberta, Canada on this day September 15, 1907 as Vina Fay Wray.  Her family moved to California when she was young and her mother and father divorced which put hard times on her and her five wrayfay.jpgsiblings.  At the age of 16 Fay played her first part in the movie Gasoline Love in 1923.  She wouldn’t appear in her next movie, Coast Patrol, until almost two years later.  Wray made four more movies in 1926 and her career was starting to look promising.  In 1927 she did three more movies before she would get a lead role in the hit movie The Wedding March.  Moving from silent movies, Wray, having a pleasant voice was one of few who went on to make “talkie” movies.  In 1933 Fay appeared in eleven movies such as The Big Brain, Ann carvers Profession and the movie that is remembered to this day, King Kong where she played Ann Darrow, Kong’s love interest.  She was getting top movies offered to her and made eleven more films in 1934.  As more actresses started popping up she was being offered fewer jobs, she did make a big movie in 1942 named Not a Ladies Man but would not act in another movie until Treasure of the Golden Condor in 1953.  She appeared in a few films in the 1950’s but no big hits, her last movie, except for a couple documentaries, was Gideon’s Trumpet in 1980.  Fay died August 8, 2004, being remembered forever as King Kong’s first love.

I lived on Cottonwood, she lived around the corner on Mt. Laurel.  Her nickname was (shougie) and she was my candy girl.  I still have this vivid memory, she was across the yard in this white Easter dress, her beautiful pale skinned face framed by her golden blond hair as the sunlight glistened through.  Her eyes separated me from the other boys in the pack I ran with, she gave me a smile and a very innocent ‘come here’ look, that just melted my shyness away.  Till this very day, when ever I here this song, that wonderful vision and memories come back.  Oh young love, how sweet it is.  The only problem was she had older brothers that were not only very protective of their younger sister, they didn’t seem to like me much.  Anyway the song is Sugar Sugar by The Archies and it was a chart topper this day September 3, 1969.  Thanks to silverstarshines  for the video.  O Shougie, Shougie Wherefore art thou Shougie?

Yes, I know Pantera one day and then almost 20 years earlier Dean the next.  I love all kinds of music and since Everybody Loves Somebody by Dean Martin was a chart topper this day August 21, 1964, I thought you would enjoy a listen.  Thanks to kheisler07 for a very nice video.

It was a very sad day back on August 19, 1981 for young boys and even grown men, maybe especially for grown men.  The Television series Charlie’s Angels aired it’sladd.jpg final episode, after running for five years.  Back in 1981 there wasn’t a whole lot of computer traffic on the internet or even the very liberal television of today, we had the Angels, Kate Jackson, Jaclyn Smith, and Farrah Fawcett and later Cheryl Ladd, Shelley Hack, and Tanya Roberts.  When Charlie said through that intercom “Good Morning Angels” and the three girls answered back in unison, the show was on.  I don’t think there was one teen boy who didn’t have or at least knew someone who had that Farrah Fawcett poster hung on their wall.  Oh, I know it’s not much in today’s world but back then, nothing so big and beautiful was ever printed on paper, and it was in the stores, on display!  Damn, times were changing.  You know the rest of the story, in 2000, Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, and Lucy Liu made a movie version of the show.  They even did a Charlie’s Angels 2 called Full Throttle in 2003 which I still haven’t seen.  I thought the first movie was pretty good but to tell the truth, it wasn’t as good as the first time.

Cheryl Ladd was my Favorite!

stainglass.jpgJust a thought I’m having.  Thinking back a long time ago, when I was a teen, I remember seeing Billy Graham on Television (I didn’t have a good opinion about televangelist or even religion at the time) but what He said made me think.  He said (something like this, I don’t recall his words exactly), either Jesus was and is who we believe Him to be, the Son of the Living God or He pulled the biggest prank in the history of the world.  That made me stop and think about how He, Jesus fulfilled  all the prophecies He fulfilled, like the prophecy of His actual birth.  We as a people record Time by His very existence.  If He did pull a prank like that, then we should worship Him just for pulling off such a prank! IMHO 

Jesus Is Lord
