Good Day Speakies:
If it’s Tuesday, it must be Tuesday. BAROOM BOOM. A bum came up to me yesterday and told me, “I haven’t tasted food all week.” I told him, “Don’t worry, it still tastes the same!” Thanks Henny. Next I would like to send out Birthday and Anniversary wishes to all my Guys and Dolls celebrating theirs today. May you enjoy your day and many more years to come.
Today we celebrate “ LOOK AT THE SKY DAY” and “LICORICE DAY.” I remember that line from the 1950’s movie “The Thing” when the reporter said the last line in the movie after they killed the alien, “Keeping watching the skies.” Sometimes at night I’ll go out in the back yard and try to find locate the various constellations but I’m never sure. Maybe when I retire I may invest in a telescope to do a little viewing. I had a telescope as a kid it was made of hard cardboard material and looked like a bazooka not very powerful but for a kid it was fun.
LICORICE DAY, there was the day licorice was black, then came red, green, strawberry and who knows what other flavors now. I had favorite shapes for the licorice I enjoyed to eat. Red for those long straw twisted sticks, also remember those thin strings of red licorice. I like the black record shaped ones with the red dot in the middle and the black shaped pipes. Roe found a brand of licorice she likes at Target that are shaped like the twisted sticks only thicker and cut in bite size pieces. Black licorice always gives me an after taste but this brand at Target is very mellow. Maybe I should become a connoisseur on licorice after I retire. I can picture myself sitting at a grand desk in front of all the licorice and people seeking my advice on the taste of the red twists. So if you like licorice no matter what flavor go ahead and enjoy some today.
Here’s a warning don’t be chewing your licorice and looking at the skies and choke. Have a wonderful Tuesday.
