As the Thread Title says, a Good Morning! to you.
Let's see what happened on this Date in History....
1953: 71.7% of all television sets in the United States are tuned into "I Love Lucy" to watch her give birth.
After Lucy became pregnant, I heard tell that there was talk of changing the Name of the Classic Historical TV Sitcom to "I Impregnated Lucy", but it was 1953, you know?
Here's something else:
1978: The last Volkswagen Beetle made in Germany leaves VW's plant in Emden. Beetle production in Latin America continued until 2003.
y First Car was a 1963 VW Bug. My Second One was a 1969. Beetles are so Small, I didn't get my Fill with the First One.
Fact is, I was 16 when I had my '63 VW Bug and knew nothing about Automotive Mechanics. After I first got it, I was driving around when it sputtered and the engine died. I coasted off of the road , got out, walked around to the front of the car, and lifted up the hood.
Another Fella in a Beetle Bug pulled up beside me and asked if he could help. "I don't know", I replied. "It seems as though I lost my engine!"
"Don't worry" the Other Fella said, "I've got a spare one in my Trunk!"
You see, the Older VW Beetles had their engine in the rear...
Oh, never mind.
Have a Good Day.
