Chicken Boy's Day ~ Chicken Boy was a sign atop a restaurant of the same name in Los Angeles -- a restaurant that specialized in (can you guess?) deep fried chicken! Chicken Boy had a chicken head and a man's body and stood a walloping 22 feet tall!! Want to read more about him? go here Chicken Boy: The True Story.
Bison-Ten-Yell Day ~ It's the bicentennial birthday of Bison-Ten-Yell, imaginary inventor of a series of ten battle yells that were signals. His system is still used today by football players.
Yeah, football fans yell all right. And sometimes you need a sign to warn others...

Emma M. Nutt Day ~ One ringy dingy... (remember Lily Tomlin as the telephone operator?) Old Emma became the first female telephone operator on Sept. 1, 1878 and shares her special day with -- guess who -- Lily Tomlin who is celebrating her 71st birthday today!!

♥♥♥ One more thing! Did you notice that I have a new look for my blog? Basically the same but cleaner lines, a little wider -- still cutesy. I switched the Etsy Mini's for the Craft Cult scrolling widgets over there on the right top. I think I like them better -- more fun! What do you think? ♥♥♥
