It’s Sunday, Juyl 17, and the heat in Chicago will begin building up relentlessly over the week, winding up in the mid-30s (Celsius) by the end of the week. But take heart: it’s World Emoji Day (International).♥ :-)
On this day in 1918, the Bolsheviks executed the Tsar, his family, and their retainers at Ekaterinburg, Russia: all of them all count as people who died on this day. And on July 17, 1955, Disneyland was officially opened by Walt Disney in Anaheim, California.
Notables born on this day include one of my favorite painters, Lyonel Feininger (1871), actor James Cagney (1899), and a namesake, Canadian lawyer James Coyne (1910). I wonder if any Canadian readers have heard of him. Those who died on this day include Dorothea Dix (1887), Henri Poincaré (1912), the two jazz greats Billie Holiday (1959) and John Coltrane (1967), and Walter Cronkite (2009). Meanwhile in Dobryzyn, Hili and Cyrus are cuddling (it’s not right!) and conversing:
Cyrus: What are you doing?Hili: I’m thinking.Cyrus: Me too.
Cyrus: Co robisz?
Cyrus: Ja też.
