Today I am living "Where the Wild Things Are"! Famous children's book author Maurice Sendak was born on this date in 1928. (He died in 2012.) I think my multicolored prehistoric (?) lizards are pretty wild. Also born on this date -- Dick Vitale (1939), Cole Porter (1881), and Peter the Great (1672).
For the record -- I wore my "California Mission" tie yesterday, for no special occasion.
