Happy July 10 Speakies:
Today is “FOX AND HOUND DAY”, the only Fox and Hound I know of is a British Pub that has great beer and excellent fish and chips. Let me give you the insight to the real Fox and Hound Day. It is a 1981 animated film owned by Walt Disney Productions. The film relates the story of two friends, a fox named Tod and a hound dog named Copper, who struggle to preserve their friendship despite all the social pressures that arise against them.
DON’T STEP ON A BEE DAY – If you do and are not wearing shoes it’s going to hurt and you will be jumping around until that stinger comes out. My slogan is “DON’T PISS OFF A BEE.”
For you frozen drink fans it is “PINA COLADA DAY.” A Pina Colada is a drink that you sip slowly or you’ll get a brain freeze. It is a refreshing drink and what’s more refreshing is drinking one on a tropical island on the beach or by the pool.
July is also “WATERMELON MONTH” that refreshing fruit that one usually finds at picnics sitting in that metal tub filled with ice and cold water getting it ready to hit and refresh our taste buds. Remember after taking a bite save those seeds in your mouth and have a seed spitting contest for distance. I personally prefer a seedless watermelon not having to worry about spitting out seeds. I remember someone telling me when I was a kid that if I swallowed the seeds a watermelon would grow in my stomach. At Disney World’s Epcot Countries, Mexico made a watermelon drink that was so refreshing it included the melon, the seeds and ice. SO GOOOOD, you can even add a little vodka for the kicker.
Well Guys and Dolls have a wonderful day, be careful out there as usual and give the ones you love a hug.
