Goatview Farm - The Saint Report www.goatview.com

December 4

Saints o' the Day include, but are not limited to, Saint Barbara (patron saint of builders, architects, artillerymen, firemen, military engineers and miners, invoked against sudden death, lightning, fire, and impenitence), Saint John Damascene, Saint Maruthas, Saint Anno, Saint Osmund, and Saint Bernard of Parma.

Celebrating birthdays today: Max Baer, Jr. (Jethro Clampett* see correction below)(1937), Deanna Durbin (1921), Jeff Bridges (1949).

Also born today was Lillian Russell (1861-1922).

*From an astute reader of the Saint Report:

Actually, Max Baer, Jr. played Jethro Bodine, not Jethro Clampett.  he was not Jed Clamplett's son.  As confirmed by Wikipedia:

"The series starred Buddy Ebsen as the widowed patriarch, Jedediah Jed "JD" Clampett; Irene Ryan as his mother-in-law, Daisy "Granny" Moses; Donna Douglas as his daughter, Elly May Clampett; and Max Baer, Jr. as his cousin's son, Jethro Bodine."

Jethro's mom, Pearl Clampett, was Jed Clampett's cousin (played by Bea Benaderet).
