Happy Birthday Pete
Our good friend Pete Calderone celebrates 40 years on this earth. 40! As you look at this recent photo of Pete, you'll notice he sure don't look 40. And even more so, he sure doesn't act it. You can check out his online musings by clicking on the link in the right column for "Our Friend Pete". Also, you can go see him perform comedy, live, in Kansas City at ComedyCity doing improv or sketch comedy in Monkeys With Hand Grenades.
Anyway, I thought it would be fun to also point out how much has changed since 1965, the year Pete was born. Lyndon Johnson was President, Canada adopted it's familiar maple leaf flag, and the first US forces landed in Vietnam. On the positive side, the St. Louis Arch was completed, Disney launched Epcot, and "The Sound of Music" won the Oscar for Best Picture.
Celebrities that also turn 40 this year include: Sarah Jessica Parker, J.K. Rowling, Scottie Pippin, Andy Dick, Stuart Scott, and DJ Jazzy Jeff.
So Happy Birthday Pete, founding member of the KC Optimist Club and recently named "Kansas City's Most Eligible Bachelor".
