Good Monday Morning Speakies:
Trusting you all had a great weekend. Roe and I spent a great day Saturday visiting with our son and daughter-in-law and our little ones. We missed our grandson’s birthday last month when Roe was in the hospital and we had to deliver his presents to him. You can’t keep a little one waiting for his birthday gift. I enjoyed a great day of fishing on the bay with my son and we all enjoyed a great dinner out as a family.
April is loaded with holidays and events, in week one we have the following holidays:
Scoop the Poop Week – JoeyZ does not scoop number 2 from no one.
Be Kind to Araneae Week – they are spiders Guys and Dolls so let’s make a promise not to step on any of them this week.
The Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC is in full swing. I have never been there to see the festival but I’m sure the blooms are beautiful and if you live in the DC area make sure to get out there and enjoy Spring at its finest.
Today we celebrate “Fun Day at Work” and “Sweet Potato Day.” Fun Day at Work would be not having to work today but if we must labor let’s enjoy the day with our fellow co-workers and take a long lunch. The way some politicians are acting these days we may be tied down to our desks one day with no say about our work, our rights and maybe our freedom. I don’t mean to throw politics in this blog but I can see this occurring in our future. We must stop this movement against the majority of the working class or one day it may become a reality. I saw something like this once when I was little in a documentary; guys wearing “Brown Shirts” marching and beating citizens and talking in German. Oh Yes! now I remember they were called Nazi’s.
If you are a fan of sweet potatoes have some today maybe throw in a little turkey or maybe that Doll of yours will make you a Sweet Potato pie. A very funny lady was born today, Cloris Leachman, I can still see and hear her as Frau Blucher say that line from “Young Frankenstein”- “He was my boyfriend.”
Enough for me today have a great day and party at work and eat sweet potatoes to your heart’s content.
