The June 1 Club

Today is my birthday! Several other illustrious personages share it.

The very gifted pianist Richard Goode.

The great 17th century Jesuit explorer Father Marquette. Father Jacques Marquette introduced the Indians to Roman Catholicism. A very politically incorrect thing to talk about now.

The actress Marilyn Monroe.

Pennario never met Marilyn Monroe but he said, "I always wanted to." Ha, ha! Instead of meeting her he met me. Sorry, you take what life hands you.

Who else was born on June 1? The big Mormon Brigham Young.

The mezzo soprano Frederika von Stade.

We are a diverse and multitalented group!

It would be fun for all of us to sit down and have a drink together.
