20 Happy Days Facts

Fonzie Wasn’t Always the Fonz

There was a time when the other person who was being considered for the role of Arthur Fonzarelli was another man. In fact, that man was Micky Dolenz from the The Monkees. There was a moment when the Fonz could have been a Monkee, but it didn’t work out that way. Henry Winkler was given the role, and he was able to make it work so well we can’t imagine anyone else ever taking a shot at something like this.

Tiffany Raiford is a lifelong Floridian, wife to my high school sweetheart and mother of four littles (two girls and boy/girl twins...no, they are not identical and yes, I'm sure). My kids love to whine, so I love to wine. My loves include nap time, bed time, date night, travel and evenings and weekends when my husband is home because he handles all diaper changes.
