Longbranch Light, Birthday Wish for Bubba

Good morning Longbranch.

It is shaping up to be another beautiful day on the southern tip of the Key Peninsula. It is currently 58 degrees and the weather geeks are saying our high will top out at 77. The clouds will be around most of the day but rain is not in our near future, according to the geeks. Wednesday’s forecast looks the best of the entire week: sunny, clear and a high of 81 degrees.

The sunlight was absolutely dancing on the surface of Drayton’s Passage this morning as it has the past three mornings. Fishermen zipped in and out of the passage all weekend long. The gentle breeze in the afternoon turned our backyard into an impromptu regatta with sailing boats tacking back and forth.

And now for today in history according to history.com:

“On this day in 1946, William Jefferson Blythe III is born in Hope, Ark. His father died in a car accident before he was born, and young Bill later took the last name of his stepfather, Roger Clinton. In 1992, Bill Clinton would be elected as the 42nd president of the United States.

“By his own account, Clinton was inspired to enter politics after meeting President John F. Kennedy at the White House as a high school student. He attended Georgetown University and won a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford in 1968, then received a law degree from Yale. In 1974, Clinton lost a bid for Congress in Arkansas’ Third District. He married fellow Yale Law graduate Hillary Rodham the following year; their daughter Chelsea was born in 1980.”
