Yesterday was my birthday - my Medicare birthday no less!! I've mentioned before several famous people who share my birthday. (See the blog post.) Here are a couple more birthday twins I've unearthed: evangelist Franklin Graham and cartoonist William Hanna (Think Hanna Barbera with whom he created The Flintstones).
Children's author, Peggy Parish, is also member of my July 14 birthday club.
Margaret Cecile "Peggy" Parish (July 14, 1927 – November 19, 1988) was the author of Amelia Bedelia. The series was continued after her sudden death from an aneurysm by her nephew Herman Parish. She was born in Manning, South Carolina. Herman his aunt's life in his book, Good Driving, Amelia Bedelia, by writing this sweet dedication, "For Peggy Parish, the real Amelia."
