April 16 – Happy Birthday Charlie Chaplin

The Exuberant Charlie Chaplin

130 years ago today on April 16, 1889 Charlie Chaplin was born in Walworth, London. In a 75-year career he showed us what it means to be a comic genius and a true storyteller.

My favorite quote attributed to him is, “A day without laughter is a day wasted.”

I could not agree more.
