It’s the birthday

… of Bonnie Raitt. She turns 55 in the Nick of Time.

… of Patti Page. A good gift for Patti as she turns 77 might be A Doggy in The Window. Depends on how much, I suppose.

It’s also the birthday of Margaret Mitchell, born on this date in 1900. As you all must know (but just in case), Mitchell’s original name for Scarlett O’Hara was Pansy O’Hara. Just wouldn’t have been the same.

The Writer’s Almanac has quite a bit on Mitchell.
