Grandpa loved BOBBY BARE and played the song "MARIE LAVEAU" for us kids on his cassette tape in his truck as he took us to his cabin. I remember sweating my buns off in the home made sauna he built and not being able to breath, lol. I remember deep sea fishing and seeing THE all-time biggest Halibut of my then short life....I remember sprouts being grown by Gma in the kitchen and Gpa hating them....and covering for him when he went for a (smoke) "Break" in the garage. Good times we had. I'll never forget them.

In 1928, in the year that Eugene "Gene" Joseph George was born, Mickie Mouse was born! He first appeared in Disney's Steamboat Willie, along with Minnie. Although they were in two previous shorts, this was the first to be distributed. Steamboat Willie took advantage of the new technology and was a "talkie" - music was coordinated with the animation. It became the most popular cartoon of its day.

In 1940, Eugene was merely 12 years old when on September 16th, the Selective Training and Service Act of 1940, was enacted - the first peacetime draft in U.S. history. Men between 21 and 36 were required to register with their draft boards. When World War II began, men between 18 and 45 were subject to service and men up to 65 were required to register.

In 1954, at the age of 26 years old, Eugene was alive when on May 17th, the Supreme Court released a decision on Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka. The ruling stated that state laws establishing separate public schools for black and white students was unconstitutional thus paving the way for integration in schools.

In 1976, when he was 48 years old, on August 4th, a mysterious illness struck an American Legion convention in Philadelphia. Within a week, 25 people had died and 130 people had been hospitalized. It was the first known instance of what came to be called "Legionnaires Disease."
