Happy Birthday Frank Sinatra, You Are One Of The Greats

Today would have been the 100th birthday of Frank Sinatra. He remains one of the greatest entertainers in American history. “The Chairman of The Board” as he is affectionately known was a singer as well as an actor.

Note To Self

Don’t drink a cup of Earl Grey tea after drinking a Mountain Dew in the evening. That means you won’t sleep much. Not a smart move Burgess.

Waking up at oh my gosh it’s early is never fun. Tossing and turning can be exhausting. Laying there awake is kind of boring too. I’m going to pay for this today I bet.

Oh did I mention I had two Mountain Dew’s to drink on Friday.

(Note: Mountain Dew is a citrus flavoured soft drink with extra caffeine)
