Mr Magoo Cloud ~ Picture of the Day ~ Captain of Titanic ~ Rise 'n Shine Breakfast Bake ~ National Joe Day

Good 37º cloudy morning.

When I was out taking cloud pictures I saw this cloud that looked like Mr. Magoo laying down on his back!

Mr. Magoo was created in 1949 and was originally shown as animated shorts in the movie theater.  In 1960, The Mr. Magoo show debuted on television. The main character was a very near-sighted man who would not admit that he couldn’t see well. This resulted in many amusing stories. He also had a dog named McBarker. Magoo was voiced by Jim Backus.

Picture of the Day ....

Captain Edward Smith was a British naval officer that served as commodore of numerous White Star Line vessels. He successfully commanded the Baltic, Adriatic and the Olympic. In 1912, he was the captain on the maiden voyage of the RMS Titanic, which struck an iceberg and sank. The largest passenger liner in service at the time, Titanic had an estimated 2,224 people on board when she struck an iceberg. Her sinking resulted in the deaths of more than 1,500 people, including Captain Edward Smith, who went down with the ship.
