Good Monday Morning Speakies:
Hoping you all had a great weekend and nice Palm Sunday. Can’t believe Easter is next Sunday, time is sure flying by us. I imagine a lot of schools are closed this week due to spring vacation or Easter and the roads down here will be packed. Today is “NATIONAL ANIMAL CRACKERS DAY.” The debate is whether they are crackers or cookies. They resemble crackers but with the use of sweet dough it gives them that cookie taste. To me they are cookies because they taste like a cookie to me. A cracker to me is a saltine or an oyster cracker that you crumble in soup or put a piece of cheese on it. Whatever your verdict is, have some Animal Crackers tonight, but most of all pick up a box for the little ones. Any little surprise is a great gift you can give to make that little face glow.
Years ago I heard an interesting question what is the longest song title ever? I remember it being written by Hoagy Carmichael and did a little research. The song is from 1942 and sung by the late Bing Crosby, it is called: “I’M A CRANKY OLD YANK IN A CLANKY OLD TANK ON THE STREETS OF YOKOHAMA WITH MY HONOLULU MAMA DOIN’ THOSE BEAT-O, BEAT-O, FLAT-ON-MY-SEAT-O, HIROHITO BLUES, HIROHITO BLUES.” Now that’s a mouthful of music. Don’t worry I’m not putting that on my blog for your listening pleasure.
I think I’ll make it a short one today, have a great day and enjoy the evening.
