Who Was Born On Your Birthday? (Sorry If DaVinci Wasn't Born on YOURS!)



If you were born on April 15th, you share a birthday with...wait for it...Leonardo da Vinci!  Now, I am sure that there are many who have this day as their date of birth also but they are not as gifted as the great da Vinci.   Still, it is nice to know if today is your birthday. 
So, who shares your birthday?  Tell me, I want to know!


Astonishing Drawings & Paintings By Leonardo da Vinci - 15

By the way, my birthday is today and it is a lovely time of year in Georgia. (My sister lives in Colorado and she just got two feet of snow!)

  3. Happy Birthday, dear Kay!!! I'm sorry I didn't know (or remember?) it was/is today; I would have liked to send a card.
    By the way, you share your birthday not only with Leonardo, but also with Claire Helen - my friends' little daughter who was born this morning at 3.00 am! I am rather excited for the young family.
    And I share my birthday with William Shatner - and with my own great-grandfather, I was born 100 years after him on the day. Don't know how my parents managed to time it that well ;-)

    1. I remember that my mother told me that I was born about 11:30 in the morning, just in time for lunch! LOL!
      Smiling on you having the same birthday as William Shatner, you are always boldly going about your way!
      AND to be born exactly 100 years to the day after your great grandfather, that is a special thing!

  5. Happy Birthday! May you have a wonderful celebration today! I don't know who was also born on my birthday, but I know that the delightful actor/comedian/author Stephen Fry was born just a couple of days after me, so we're almost the same age.

Hope your day is wonderful and we're finally getting good weather too. 70de today and sunny and it will be like that all weekend! Very different from last weekend with 8in. of snow and I don't live anywhere near Colorado! (I think my birthday is shared by Liz Taylor...maybe)

  12. Happy birthday! As a child growing up in Australia I was happy to have my birthday the day after Australia Day which I thought was a holiday in my honour. Now I will only remember that my mother died on my birthday (earlier this year).

    1. Your mother would not want you to be sad about her death on your birthday, as a mother, I just am certain of it!
      I am sorry for your loss.
      Australia Day being the day before your birthday, you are lucky to have the two together!

  15. A very Happy Birthday, Kay...I hope you celebrate it in fine style and at length! :)

    I was born on my birthday...11th November. Leonardo DiCaprio was born on 11th November, as was the late comedian Jonathan Winters. So too,actors Callista Flockhart and Stanley Tucci.

    The late Colonel David Hackworth (whom I knew...and who was a fine guy), the most highly decorated soldier in the US Army, author, War Correspondent during the Gulf War also shared the same date as me. David is buried at Arlington Cemetery. H

    Daisy Bates, Civil Rights' Leader and George Patton also were born on 11th November. Abigail Adams, wife of the 2nd President of the US, John Adams joins this illustrious list!

    Have yourself a wonderful birthday celebration/s!! :)

    1. That is a GREAT list of people!
      And you knew "Hack"! Have you written a post about him? If not, please do so!
      And thanks for the birthday wishes!

    2. I did write about David a long while ago, now, Kay...but I will write about him again. He was a wonderful guy....very interesting; as funny as hell...loved life, but I'd not like to have ever gotten on his bad side. I was glad to be his friend and not his foe. He had such a strength about him, if you know what I mean. A fine looking man, too.

    3. I do wonder if you should write a book of your experiences and of all the interesting people you have met!

  16. Happy Birthday, Kay. Had your mom only known that she might have called you Leona (shortened form of Leonardo)....glad she didn't know...I think Kay suits you a whole lot better. lol

    1. Dear Diana,
      Your comment is like a gift from heaven. My Dad's dear sister, my Aunt Leona, died in 1996 and was a much beloved Aunt. She was so funny, she never wrote my name as "KAY" she always put an "e" on the end, "KAYE" just because she liked it better! It always tickled me.
      She is the one who gave us our giant cereus cactus and also...if you remember my Daddy having the Roosevelt Bible from just after WW2, he sent it to Leona from Germany, his cherished little sister.
      And it will be a memorable weekend, my niece is getting married today (April 16th), you know the one who had the Black and White shower back in Feb.? So, it should be very special indeed! xx
