April 24th

Happy Birthday to my Brother-in-law Joe and family friend Arlene too..They were both born on the 24th, different years and in different places. They share their birthday with Barbara Streisand, Shirley MacLaine, Captain Sensible, Dino Radja, Chipper Jones, Kelly Clarkson, and Cedric the Entertainer to name a bunch.
