September 30

Good Boy in Chief, Bark Twain, explains the day!

Historically, September 30th has seen a thing or two. Back in 1791, the good folks of Philadelphia laid the cornerstone for the United States Capitol. That’s the big fancy building where politicians go to talk and argue – not always in that order.

Then, in 1927, Babe Ruth, the Sultan of Swat, hit his 60th home run in a single baseball season. That’s a record that stood tall for a spell. Imagine that – one man knockin’ the ball out of the park 60 times in a few months.

As for notable folks born on this date, well, there’s Truman Capote, the writer who gave us “In Cold Blood” and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” He had a knack for spinning tales that’d make a cat laugh.

And, for all you fans of “Star Trek,” you’ll be happy to know that September 30th is the birthday of the late Leonard “Spock” Nimoy. He had them pointy ears and a logical mind to match.

So, there you have it, September 30th in all its mellow glory. It might not set the world on fire, but it’s got its own flavor, like a slow sip of that mulled cider.
