20 Happy Days Facts

Henry Winkler is Dyslexic

Did you know this fan favorite struggled to read? He wasn’t diagnosed until he was in his 30s, and that meant he struggled with the lines he had to learn when he auditioned for this role. He had six lines, but he could not read them. He didn’t know what his problem was, so he made up some lines and then told the producers he would read the script if he got the role. However, he was going to provide them with what he felt was the essence of the character at that moment.

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.
