Monday, February 25: Another disappointment?

You know, kids, not every day on the calendar can be a big red letter day. And Monday, February 25 sure won't be.

Options for Monday include National Chili Day, National Chocolate Covered Nuts Day, and National Clam Chowder Day. Whoopee... not.

But, ever eager to help, we here at The Blog of Days are pleased to point out that Monday will be the centennial of the birth of Jim Backus (born February 25, 1913 in Cleveland, Ohio). Backus may be better known as Thurston Howell III to you Gilligan's Island fans, but we think he is most famously remembered as the voice of Mr. Magoo. (Oh, Blog of Days, you've done it again.)
