What a rotten day today is weather wise. I had to go to a show and sell program for my company. This involved highway driving in a driving rain. The best part was it was over by 2 o'clock. So my day ended two hours early. The was the best part of the day. Last night I finally turned the heat on. The temperature tickled the high 30's. There is also an outside chance that some parts of this area might receive (four letter word coming up here) snow. Not a lot but still it's just a sign of things to come.
This Sunday, after going out for breakfast, I plan to take a ride to the Mt. Auburn Cemetery. It looks to be a nice day. It can be spectacular in the fall. I might take the tour so I can find the graves of some of the famous people buried there.
- Oliver Wendell Holmes-Studied medicine in France and wrote articles on how disease spreads and that health care workers should regularly wash their hands. It was considered extreme at the time. Imagine that.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow-poet
- Fannie Farmer
- Edwin Land-Polaroid
- John Bartlett-"Bartletts Quotations
- Edwin Booth-Actor,Brother of John Wilkes Booth
- Charles Bullfinch-Architect. Re-designed Boston after the revolution including the statehouse. Later on he desiGned the U.S. Capital Building.
- Mary Baker Eddy-Founder of the Christin Science Church.
- Curt Gowdy-Sportscaster
- Homer Winslow-painter
- Anne Revere-Actress. Not a household name but she was nominated for best supporting actress in "The Song Of Bernadette" The next year she was cast as Elizabeth Taylor's mother in National Velvet, Taylor's first film. I never heard of her.
So those are my plans for Sunday as long as the weather holds out. It looks to be sunny.
OK. I'm in the process of making chicken soup. I'll be back to visit after I eat.
