30 August 15

I'm wearing the Pillsbury Doughboy® today because it's National Toasted Marshmallow Day and he's the only figure in my tie collection who resembles a marshmallow (particularly his chef's hat). Some people have mistaken him for a "tooth." He does routinely giggle when his tummy is pressed. Old time TV fans can also celebrate today's birthdays of Raymond Massey (the old-guy mentor on "Dr. Kildare," 1896), Shirley Booth (Hazel, on "Hazel," 1898), and Fred MacMurray (father Steve Douglas on "My Three Sons," 1908).
