OH THAT CAN'T BE RIGHT
I observed a holiday without knowing it early this morning. I got on the scale and checked my weight, which I am happy to report is holding steady. I checked my holidays for today and its “SCALE DAY.” I presume its meaning is weighing but it could also refer to scaling fish we can do both on this observance without fear of offending anyone.
On a serious note wear a green ribbon if you have one today. Child Depression Awareness Day is well celebrated is the wrong word to use let’s say it’s a day to ponder the seriousness of this medical issue. Personally I feel no child should be or feel depressed but it’s a medical situation far beyond my knowledge. As parents I can only suggest to read material on this subject and watch for the signs in your children and maybe one day we can worry no more.
“TOURISM DAY” – I live in the middle of tourism and at times it’s not funny. There were times of peace, less traffic and one could shop without the maddening crowds as I recall but times have changed. I guess tourism is a great boost for our local economy and I should not complain, but I remember the days of orange groves and now only strip malls are growing.
So much for today Speakies, have a great day.
