Happy 91st Birthday Marilyn Monroe


Today is the 91st birthday of the woman that is an American icon, even fifty years after her death:  Marilyn Monroe.  Do yourself a favor and watch The Misfits sometime soon.  You won’t be disappointed.  One of my favorite stories about her is that for 20 years after her death, Joe Dimaggio had red roses delivered to her crypt twice a week. Generations of flower shop delivery boys learned the story, made the drive to visit her final resting place in honor of their baseball hero, replace the 3-day old roses with new ones, touch the her bronze name placard and understood the true meaning of eternal love.  The world is a better place because she was in it and still feels the loss that she has left.
