Johnny Appleseed Day!

Johnny Appleseed, born John Chapman, ventured into the new frontier of early America during the first half of the 19th century to plant apple trees.  Johnny passed away on this date in 1845 at the age of 70 after nearly fifty years of planting and caring for trees.  And though he rarely wore shoes and socks, we still appreciate him.  In fact, we think you should pick up a pair of apple scented socks.
