Happy Birthday!

To the one and only Frisbee!!!

This Saturday, January 13 will mark the 50 year anniversary of the frisbee (first marketed as the Pluto Platter, they didn't add the word frisbee until July 1957)

So, if you think about this Saturday and have an old disc laying around, like an 80 mold or a black Master - give it a whirl for old times sake.....

Other memorable events in '57...

- 1st electric watch introduced, Lancaster PA
- Elvis Presley makes his 7th and final appearance on Ed Sullivan Show
- Liz Taylor's 2nd divorce
- Larry King's 1st radio broadcast
- U.S. Surgeon Gen Leroy Burney connects smoking with lung cancer
- Ford Motor Co introduces Edsel
- Richie Ashburn, fouls hit fan Alice Roth twice in same at bat 1st one breaks her nose, 2nd one hits her while she is on the stretcher
- Musical "West Side Story," opens on Broadway
- U.S.S.R. launches Sputnik 2 with a dog (Laika), 1st animal in orbit

And, no, I wasn't born quite yet.
