Happy Thursday Guys and Dolls:
June the 7th is here and the month is in full progress. The kids finish school here tomorrow and I’m plenty of graduations are in the air. To you graduates I say congratulations as you start your steps to the future. One thing, I know there are parties, use your heads drinking and driving and stay alive to enjoy the future.
June Bug Day – Do you know what a June Bug is? A plain old ordinary beetle Amen. So if you like June Bugs here’s your day to celebrate. I miss good old Lightning bugs down here in the summer; only saw one or two in 21 years. Remember those days catching them on the warm summer evenings; I could never step on them though as they laid on the sidewalk like the other kids did.
National Tailors Day – When I worked in the men’s wear business I received some tailoring experience, I learned to press, make cuffs on pants and the regular straight bottom hems. One of the nicest guys and tailors I ever met was when I worked part-time at F.W. Donnelly’s. His name was Pasquale Verde who lived on Butler St. He was a master tailor making his own suits, jackets and pants with great style. I read he passed away, God Bless Pat.
Chocolate Ice Cream Day – My favorite and I’m sure the choice of many of my Speakies. How could anyone go wrong with chocolate ice cream? Now there are so many varieties: Chocolate with chocolate chunks, chocolate fudge, chocolate and peanut butter and the list goes on. So have yourself some ice cream tonight even if it’s not chocolate, summer is here to enjoy the taste.
I’m going to wish you a very Happy Weekend today as Joey Z is tied up tomorrow with some personal matter to attend to. For those arriving in Florida tomorrow the weather will be wet over the next few days but one can never trust the good old weather men here. Have a great one and be careful out there.
