Happy b'day J. D. Salinger!

My Mom dated the author (who evidently had not reached his extreme reclusivity (? - is this a word - ?)) in the 1940s', but he did seem to have kept his sense of humor.

He continually referred to Mom as "Priscilla from Philadelphia" even though her name is Jean. I suspect that some "hard" drinks were imbibed, but would hate to start any rumours EVER (regardless of the common belief in that era that most authors were BIG TIME DRINKERS). The aforementioned "rumour" is just that and should be considered as such.

Happy B-Day to a great American artist.
