At several times when I noticed today's date, I asked myself what it meant to me.
Later I learned from a Facebook group that Jeff checked that it's Bette Davis' birthday. How could I have forgotten?
Bette Davis has been my favorite actress for something like 40 years. I don't remember when I first discovered her. I do remember that my mother let me stay home from school one day to watch "The Letter." No one would need to that today. It only worked then because I was a good student. Plus I wasn't asking to cut for random movies.
In college I met Beth who was also a Bette fan. She helped me appreciate Bette even more.
Happy Birthday Bette. You are awesome.
