Did You Know ...
… that 59 years ago today, Sept. 12, 1953, John F. Kennedy married Jacqueline Lee Bouvier. He was an up-and-coming senator from Massachusetts; she was a photographer for the Washington Times-Herald. A little more than seven years later they became better known as the President and First Lady of the United States of America.
… that also 59 years ago today, Sept. 12, 1953, Nikita Khrushchev became First Secretary of the Communist Party of the USSR, and its defacto leader?
… that 40 years ago today, Sept. 12, 1972, the Western movie and television actor William Boyd died? For millions of "B" Western movie lovers in the 1930s and '40s he was the embodiment of Hopalong Cassidy, and then he became the next generation's hero when he moved the popular brand into the new world of TV in 1948.

Ken Tate, along with his wife, Janice, edits Good Old Days magazine and the Annie's Attic Mysteries series for Annie's, a publisher located in Berne, Ind. Ken and Janice live in the Ozark Mountains of north Arkansas on property that has been in their family for nearly a century.
Ken began working with Good Old Days in 1989 after a long career editing newspapers and magazines. It was only natural, Ken says, that Janice joined him in editing the nostalgia magazines in 1997. She had worked with him for years on various publications before the birth of their three children.
In addition to their work on the magazine and books, Ken and Janice run a small ranching operation on the 400-acre, old home place and enjoy time with their extended family. Ken is looking forward to the golden anniversary of Good Old Days in 2013, which will also mark his silver anniversary with the magazine. Retirement, he contends, is highly overrated -- at least for him.
