Interesting and important things happened in 1970:
The Beatles released “Let it Be”; it would be their last album
The first Earth Day was celebrated
The first female jockey ran in the Kentucky Derby
The floppy disk was invented
The EPA was created
Midnight Cowboy was the Oscar winning movie
Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head and Cracklin’ Rose both hit Number One that year.
But most importantly, two special people got married on May 9th, in a candlelit ceremony, pledging to love each other forever. And so they have. Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad.
Many thanks to
