Labor Day!!

Though still a monday, it is still a day off. Summer is coming to an end... Already?

I like Fall well enough, leaves turning, college football... Maybe even a seasonal epiphany?

Today also marks a few birthdays of note, one being Felix Salten. (Imagine the theme to Jeopardy here as you rack your brain.)

Felix Salten wrote Bambi in 1923. In 1933, he sold the rights to the movie rights, for $1000, to director Sidney Franklin, who then transfered the right to Walt Disney Studio. The original Bambi movie was released in 1942.

Star Trek debuted on NBC on this day in 1966, so I'm sure any number of Trekkie faithful will be paying homage at the alter of Rodenberry (Sorry, I prefer Stargate SG-1).

Jeff Foxworthy was born on this day in 1958... Ok....

All in all, a big day. A special day... Come on, BAMBI is worth at least a Cool ?

Happy Birthday to Rachelle Gardner, an extraordinary agent, ( http://cba-ramblings.blogspot.com/ )

She is the subject of a writing contest on Janet Reid's ( Carcharodon carcharias) site     http://jetreidliterary.blogspot.com and I plan to mention BAMBI in my 100 word or less entry.

So break out the barbeque's and have a Great Day!
