Milestones & Millstones

Indulge me here if you would…

Happy Birthday to My Dad, Charlie Trainer, Sr. who would have turned 75 this past week (August 22nd) “Big Chal” was the man who taught me so much of what I know about gardening. His love for his “lawn” bordered on the unhealthy. He was also the only gardener I ever met who actually gardened in wingtips! And his special “all-poly” pants. Miss ya Dad!

Also today, August 26th, marks what would have been the 55th Birthday of Michael Jeter. I’ve written about Michael here before so you know the story. What you may not know is that he gave one of the greatest performances in the history of the American Musical theatre; in the Tommy Tune show, Grand Hotel The Musical. If you click on the first YouTube link you can see the recreation of that number from the Tony Awards Broadcast. At the end you can also see a young (26!) GayGardener wearing glasses & applauding proudly. The next clip is immediately following, in which you can see Jeter get his much deserved Tony Award for Best Supporting Actor in A Musical from Lilly Tomlin.Happy Birthday Mike! Take good care of Sammy!
