Something to think about Saturday
Two of the greatest qualities in life are (and friends who help complete the pot of soup)
3. Stir in a cup of viewing life with a sense of humor and some chocolate chip cookies. (Stella)
4. All made more fun in the process with a little humor along the way. (Noni at the Brick Stress Bungalow).
Gee I liked, no loved Mr. Rogers - Wikipedia - Happy Birthday.
Fred McFeely Rogers was born in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, a town located 40 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. He was born to James and Nancy Rogers; he spent many years as an only child. Early in his life he spent much of his free time with his maternal grandfather, Fred McFeely, who would later move to Florida, and had an interest in music. He would often sing along as his mother would play the piano, and at the age of five, he began to play the piano as well.
At Rollins College, Rogers met Sara Joanne Byrd, an Oakland, Florida native. They married on June 9, 1952. They had two children, James and John, and three grandsons, the third (Ian McFeely Rogers) born 12 days after Rogers' death. In 1963, Rogers graduated from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and was ordained a minister in the Presbyterian Church. Scholastically, he went on to garner 40 more honorary degrees throughout his life. Rogers was red-green color blind, swam every morning, and neither smoked nor drank. . . died of stomach cancer a few days before his 75th birthday.
I bet he is reading to children in Heaven.........
