Thursday Thirteen

Below are some celebrations/special days/holidays that occur in June.

June 1 - Oscar the Grouch's birthday (Sesame Street).  He was one of my favorite characters when I was growing up. 

June 2 - Date of the first US Spacewalk by Ed White in 1965 (A very good year, I might add!)

June 9 - Donald Duck's birthday.  He was "born" in 1934.


June 12 - Anne Frank's birthday.  She was born in Frankfurt am Main, Germany in 1929.  I never realized she would have been only 6 years older than my dad. (Great link - click her name.)

Nice inclusion on using Juneteenth. I can barely find people who know what it is, let alone could include in on a T13! Awesome :)

My birthday's in June too, just to add to the goodness. *grin*

Happy TT,

Love this list! D-Day is my daughter-in-law's birthday, so it's always easy for me to remember.

Hope you'll stop by my list:
