Default A photo of a friend of Dean Martin

A friend of mine, Mary Leas, is celebrating her 66th birthday tomorrow and requested no presents. I decided to send her, instead, 67 e-mails (with an extra to grow on), one apx. every 22 minutes throughout the day. In them, I've marked an event from about the time she was conceived on, I'm guessing here, May 9, 1946 until her birth on February 17, 1947. There are six e-mails for July 1946:

US drops atom bomb on Bikini atoll - 4th atomic explosion. (July 1, 1946)

"After 381 years of near-continuous colonial rule, the Philippines is granted full independence by the United States." (July 4, 1946)

Louis Reard's bikini swimsuit design debuts at Paris fashion show. (July 5, 1946)

At Club 500 in Atlantic City, New Jersey, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis stage their first show as a comedy team. (July 25, 1946)

Gertrude Stein dies. (July 27, 1946)


586 year old storm-damaged Scotch Pine in Canada cut down. (July 30, 1946)

It is because of the fourth of these that I am posting here. In looking for a photo to go with the e-mail, and two YouTube clips in this case ( and, I did a Google image search. As is often the case, the wide net thrown out on the waters brought in the image, below, which I find radiantly beautiful and wanted to share with everyone.
