Mr. Seymour Has A Secret

Hey, Cameron here.  It's about time someone let me do a post of my own again.  Talk about a traffic jam, there's always one here in front of the computer.

We don't know about you but last week was crappy for Jan!  So we decided to find something fun and interesting for her.  You furries might not be too interested in history, but your humans might.

In 1956, Samuel J. Seymour was a guest on "I've Got A Secret."  Who was Mr. Seymour and what was his secret?  He was the last living witness to a tragic moment in history.  At age 5, he was at the Ford Theater the night John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Abraham Lincoln. 

Enjoy a few minutes of old-fashioned television.


If the video doesn't play, click here

If you would like to read his  newspaper interview, you can read it here   We had a fun time figuring out how to view the entire article but finally learned to use the little box to the left of "Page 11 of 58" at the top right. It's short and interesting to read.


Percy, Rusty & Micah belong to the Tabby Cat Club and Nerissa, one of the members, has a brother Seville who is having a urinary blockage problem.  So drop by Nerissa's Life if you can and wish him warmer weather and thawed puddles so he can drink lots of puddle water and pee outside to his heart's content.
