The year was 1956...
-One of the top songs was "Heartbreak Hotel" ... by Elvis Presley
-A top movie was "War and Peace"
-"I Love Lucy" was the number one tv show
-Bob Barker made his TV debut as host of the Game Show Truth or Consequences
-Norma Jean Mortenson changes her name to Marilyn Monroe
But more important than any of the above or anything else that happened in 1956, on this very day in 1956, my mom was born.
Happy birthday mom! I love you!
