This Day In History…

Well, I know…it seems pretty crazy to talk about what is behind us…but as I was signing on to blog tonight, I realized that today was kind of important to a few people (or maybe a lot of people…lol).  So, on this day…..just a few….Image result for interesting

Hmmm….well, there was more but you get the idea.  It’s kind of fun to hit up the History.com site and see what happened on this day in history!!  Who has the TimeHop app (or maybe there are other apps that do this?) on their phone, where they can go back in their own history and see Facebook posts, and the such?  I love that darn thing…sometimes it is just ok to go back in history……
