Welcome to Monday and President’s Day:
Some of you Speakies are off today due to President’s Day and wishes from Joey Z to enjoy the time off. I remember as a wee Joey Z we use to get off on Lincoln’s B-Day and good old George’s B-Day as well, a double header for February in those days. Better enjoy the day off, the next true holiday for most of us comes in May and that makes the winter longer in my book.
With President’s Day also comes “CHERRY PIE DAY", makes sense good old George Washington had that legend of him chopping down the cherry tree and not did not tell a lie. I like cherry pie if there are no apple or blueberry pies left I’m not one for the sour taste of the cherries that are used in the pie itself.
The toothpick was patented this date in 1872. I wonder how they were shaped back in those days probably the size of a small twig. Well Guys and Dolls enjoy the day and evening and I’ll be back at you soon.
