On this date in 1492, Christopher Columbus was hired by Spain to explore and discover the New World. It's true that when Christopher Columbus discovered America, he was three ships to the wind.
He sailed in 1492 so it would rhyme with "ocean blue."
I'm surprised they didn't write the song "Whole New World" back then.
They supported him so much, they even waved the baggage fee.
It was an interest-free contract... the King had absolutely no interest in it.
Queen Isabella made it happen. However, he was unable to talk the King and Queen into the extended warranty.

In 1524, New York Harbor was discovered by Giovanni Da Verrazano. They didn't name the harbor after him, but they did give him a bridge.

On this date in 1922, a postcard that had disappeared during a Indiana tornado was found 124 miles away in Mt. Cory, Ohio. I don't know if they were more excited about finding the postcard or the fact they were able to save the cost of a 3-cent stamp.

On this date in 1964, Ford unveiled their new car, the Mustang.
The veil was available as an accessory but not that many were sold.
The Mustang is now old enough to receive mail from AARP.
It should be a holiday and we should get the day off.
I believe that Mustang is Spanish for "no back seat."
