Happy Birthday P.G. Wodehouse!! Just think–when the little guy was born, his parents thought and thought and then said, “Let’s name him Pelham Grenville!!” And they did, too. Later a “Sir” was put in front of his name, but I’m not sure when he worked his way to calling himself P.G.
Anyway right smack in the middle of October, we’ll celebrate–October 15 and maybe reread a nice comfy old Bertie Wooster tale of his.
