What will you do with this extra day in your life, a day that comes only once very four years?
Here’s some notable happenings on past Leap Days (along with my commentary):
In 1692, Sarah Good, Sarah Osborne & Tituba, (a Native American servant) were the first people to be accused of witchcraft in Salem Massachusetts. Bummer of a day.
In 1940, at the 12th Academy Awards, “Gone with the Wind” won eight Oscars. Frankly my dear, I don’t give a d#@n.
In 1968, the US ended regular flights with nuclear bombs. (We used to fly airplanes around the US loaded with atomic bombs…)
In 1976, for the first time on television, ABC-TV broadcasts the hit movie “The Sound of Music.” Rebroadcast annually ever since to the delight of my wife!
Whether you’re involved in witchcraft or bombs or just love to sing on mountaintops, I hope you enjoy your extra day!
