Kissing Sailor

One of my favorite spots in Sarasota is the giant “kissing statue” by the bay. We posed for this picture on a trip there with friends for our 3rd anniversary. Today marks the 69th anniversary of that photograph, taken on August 14, 1945 by Alfred Eisenstaedt, so I decided to do a little research to get the real story behind this famous kiss. But, as LeVar Burton {or as I know and love him, Geordi La Forge} would say, you don’t have to take my word for it. Check out this New York Post article to read the true, and quite amusing, story surrounding this iconic snapshot.
