HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHARLTON HESTON!

Charlton-Heston-Autographed-Publi-265485 If Charlton Heston were alive, he would have been 87 years old today.  However, he died three years ago.  We are lucky to have his 60+ films, voice-narrations, books and memories of this wonderful human being to remember him.  One can nearly always find one of his films or hear one of his voice-narrated documentaries almost daily on TV these days.  Just the other day, I came across the movie, “Cat and Dogs” where he was the voice of the top-dog!  It never fails to bring a smile to my face when I hear him or see him. 

Here’s hoping his memory lives forever.  It will, in my heart.

The last time I had a political bumper sticker on my car it read "My president is Charlton Heston!" At the time he was president of the National Rifle Association and his famous "They can have my guns when they pry them from my cold, dead hands!" is still a rallying cry in these parts. I can see him now, standing on that stage, delivering that line while holding a flintlock Kentucky rifle high over his head!

Hey,Chip, I have that bumper sticker too---in my collection. I had one on my old car, but saved the second one for posterity. Love the pic of Chuck with the gun above his head too! You know, he wrote a book "THE COURAGE TO BELIEVE" that is quite interesting too.
