I love Vicki Lawrence. The actress, who was on the Carol Burnett Show as well as Mama’s Family, was born on this day. I recall being apprehensive to meet her because her character on Mama’s Family was a mean, beer guzzling meanie. In person, Vicki Lawrence was the exact opposite. She was extremely nice! I was so happy! Happy birthday Vicki! Also born on this day: football great Marcus Allen, singer Teddy Pendergrass, comedian Martin Short, rocker Steven Tyler, actor James Caan and writers Robert Frost and Tennessee Williams. Greetings to all!
