There is one holiday of note today “AIR CONDITIONING APPRECIATION DAY.” The air conditioner that great invention to give us relief from the heat in the summer. As a kid growing up we never had an air conditioner, Dad brought out the fans opened the windows and that was our air conditioning. I remember summers at my grandmothers after a long hot summer day, taking a nice bath (granny had no shower) and then covering my body in Ammon’s Medicated Powder to keep dry. Once you did all that you were ready to spend the evening on the prowl for the young dolls, the Beatty Street boys and I spent many a summer evening in that quest. That got away from the air conditioner concept but it was fun recalling those memories. Living in Florida now one can truly be grateful for the modern central air system.
It is also “Sugar Cookie Day” and like I always say if sugar cookies are a favorite of yours get out and get some. Have a wonderful day and a great evening. See you soon and stay cool.
