FAMOUS INSULT COMEDIAN IS 90 TODAY!


Donald Jay "Don" Rickles was born in the New York City of Queens.

Don Rickles was a frequent guest on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson
and The Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts specials. He also voiced the role of Mr.
Potato Head in the three Toy Story films. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy after his
high school graduation during World War II. He later studied at the American
Academy of Dramatic Arts but quit because of a lack of acting jobs. He then 
began performing stand up comedy in hotels in the Catskill Mountains in New
York. He soon met Frank Sinatra and, as is often said, the rest is history.

A GREETING FROM PDX RETRO

The modern holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna
Jarvis
held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew’s Methodist Church in
Grafton, West Virginia. Today St Andrew’s Methodist Church now holds the
International Mother’s Day Shrine. Her campaign to make "Mother’s Day" a
recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905, the year her mother,
Ann Reeves Jarvis, died.
