Happy Birthday Charles!
Today is Charles Phoenix's birthday. Having your birthday on December 20th has to be the cruelest trick of all for a child. Five days before Christmas....I'm sure he received those dreaded COMBINATION gifts from everyone. "Oh, Happy Birthday, Charles and Merry Christmas too. Here's your duo gift...you lose out on one gift a year 'cause your birthday's so close to Christmas." See that small halo to the left of Charles' head? It must be because he's got Christmas in his soul!
If you're not familiar with the famous Mr. Phoenix, he is an archivist, humorist, author and 'histo-tainer." His many books are highly informational as well as entertaining. His slide show extravaganzas are really faboo. He even conducts field trips for selected guests of historical spots in California. Do sign up for Charles' Slide of the Week. You will receive an e-mail of a vintage slide depicting some wonderful place in the world. along with Charles' inimitable memories and comments about the slide. He is truly a fun and wonderful guy!!!!
This year, Charles is receiving my undying admiration for his birthday gift. For Christmas he's getting crochet lessons!!! So, Charles Darling....we expect to see you at the WeHo Stitch 'n Bitch come January for your year-long foray into the world of crochet!!!
