Hemingway's Birthday



Well it's not a Paris shot, but I thought something should be added for his birthday.
Ernest Miller Hemingway; born in Oak Park, Illinois, July 21, 1899.

So, Papa would've been 108 today!

"Every man's life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another."

I remember the newscast on the day he died, and since DH and I were dating, English majors, and in love with American lit, it made a huge impression on us. Altho some women have over-analyzed Hemingway"s lit, I remain a fan!!

Hello Kate,
Yes, I don't remember the news - but it must have been very dramatic.
I've read that he is becoming popular with a new generation of readers - & the macho image isn't as much of an issue.

Ame said...

Yep, #1 Pauly! ;)

And you probably saw ALL of them a few months back....several months, now that I think about it...think it was during the holidays...Yep! That's it...after Thanksgiving!

Gobble Gobble!

Hi Paul,
It's a shame I forgot. Happy Birthday Papa.

While it might seem hard to believe, my father was born in 1877. As Isabella said, what one does in their life sort of determines who remembers them and for what.
