HAPPY BIRTHDAY WILLIE!

Willie Nelson is 71 years old today. But in true original Willie fashion, he actually celebrates two birthdays every year. The birthday confusion started when Willie was 18 and joined the Air Force. His birth certificate listed his date of birth as April 30 - but he'd always celebrated it on the 29th. The problem? Willie was born just before midnight, and according to Willie's cousin Mildred - who was there - the doctor didn't look at the clock until several minutes after Willie was born, and then logged his birth date as April 30. Willie's family decided to make the best of a confusing situation, saying, "We party both days simply because we can."
