Happy Hump Day Speakies:
Hoping your day is off to a fine start. Like I said earlier there are plenty of holidays to celebrate in April. On this second week of April we honor “BE KIND TO ANIMALS WEEK” and “NATIONAL LIBRARY WEEK.” I like animals but there are certain ones I would only admire if they are in a cage or in a protective environment. Now there is this gecko that has been living in our sun porch for the past two years. He lives inside the glider pipe and comes out to sun and take a few strolls every day. I can walk right up to him pet his head and he does not move one bit. I call him “BUD.”
If you like to read this is your week, take those kiddies and show them what a library has to offer in the way of books, magazines, films and all that they offer to enhance the young minds. Now let’s list those holidays we celebrate today:
NEW BEER’S EVE – I’ll drink to that actually it’s not an official holiday in the US but it celebrates the end of Prohibition in the US. FDR signed the Cullen-Harrison Act on March 23, 1933 enabling the sale of beer to become legal on April 7, 1933. It was said that on the evening of April 6 people lined up in front of taverns and breweries to purchase beer at midnight.
FRESH TOMATO DAY – All I have to say is I love tomatoes and surely do miss those “Jersey Beefsteaks.” Use to love going to the Spruce St. Farmer’s Market and buying a small basket to enjoy. Just give me one and a shaker of salt; it’s like eating an apple. Florida does not have great tomatoes at the stores mostly imports from who knows where.
TV Dinners – They made their debut in 1954. I still enjoy them for lunch at work on occasions or when Roe is out of town, because I’m not a fan of cooking for myself. The big name then was Swanson’s TV Dinners. We now have so many to choose from it seems any kind of food can be made into TV dinners now a days.
Well enjoy the day Guys and Dolls, be kind to the creatures, eat a tomato or if you’re single find a good looking tomato, have a beer along with a TV dinner. See Ya Later!
