Happy Birthday Walt

Today is Walt Disney's Birthday. He would be 106 today if years of smoking and Lung cancer hadn't taken him from us. What a legacy he left behind. I was in Disneyland last year on this day, I expected to see cake and balloon. I was a little disappointed. A few cast members would say "Happy Birthday Walt" to each other. but that was it. One cast member told us that they have a big Chili lunch for the cast members every year on his birthday. At least that something.
Regardless of the lack of hoopla, I am still proud to share my birthday with Walt.

Happy Birthday to YOU! My B-Day was a week or so ago and I put a wee freebie on my blog...it's a word art that says "Happy Birthday" in Scots Gaelic! It's still there, if you want to go grab it!
