Today is the birthday of my FAVORITE Rolling Stone, Keith Richards, and he's 71 today.  Of course I'm gonna blog about Keith !   But of all the things that could be said about his life or his music, I'm choosing two   "Did You Know..." items because the rest of the story is 10 miles long!

Did you know that he married model Patti Hansen on HIS 40th birthday?  That would make a guy forget about his age...

And did you know that Mike Huckabee, when he was Governor of Arkansas, gave Keith a "Governors Pardon" for a reckless driving ticket he got in 1976 ?  Yup, I knew I liked Mike ... oh, but the pardon didn't come until 30 years later.  I'm sure Bill Clinton was just too busy.
