Happy Birthday, Norman Rockwell

Yes! Happy Birthday Norman Rockwell.
I saw the icon on Google this morning reminding us that it is Norman Rockwell's birthday.
I looked up information about him on Google and learned an interesting fact. During WWI Norman Rockwell tried to enlist in the Navy but was rejected for being eight pounds underweight, so he spent one night gorging himself on bananas, liquids and doughnuts, and weighed enough to enlist the next day. The Navy used him as an artist.

I, and Pat is to, am fascinated with the 1940's era, and because of that, I have an appreciation for Norman Rockwell paintings. Once again Happy Birthday Mr. Rockwell and thanks for sharing your talent.
