"What's your story, morning glory, What makes you look so blue
The way that you've been acting, I don't know what to do"
Recorded by Ella Fitzgerald in 1958-50 years ago.
That same year my family moved to West Sacramento; the Sacramento deep water channel was in construction; the movie Vertigo is released; Dwight David Eisenhower is in his second term as president; Charles de Gaulle is elected president of France; Tyrone Power dies; Madonna is born; Have Gun, Will Travel debuts on radio; the first IHOP is opened; Nikita Khrushchev becomes Premier of the Soviet Union; 9235 scientists publish a plea to stop nuclear bomb tests; Bobby Fischer wins the United States Chess Championship; Roy Campanella is in a car accident that leaves him paralyzed; Egypt and Syria unite to form the United Arab Republic; and Boris Pasternak wins the Nobel Prize.
