Hello Guys and Dolls:
Well it is August 28 and this summer month is almost over. I imagine the kids up North are getting ready to go back to school after Labor Day. The kiddies down here started last week. One of the nicest things is I don't have to face the school buses on the road in the morning hours.
For all you dreamers out there, guess what? Today is "DREAM DAY" yes that lovely day you could goof off and day dream to your hearts content. Dream of vacations, being a sports hero, a pirate who saves the fair wench, of riches beyond imagine and then finally wake up to reality. Man does that suck. But it is Dream Day so enjoy it and who knows maybe your dreams will come true.
BOW TIE DAY - For all you Barney Fife want-to-be's this is your day and I'm also paying tribute to my man Don Knotts. I thought Don Knotts was one of the funniest guys of early TV. I first saw him on the Steve Allen Show were he played various roles; one being a brain surgeon and the other a demolition expert with the shakes. To most of us he will always be remembered as Deputy Barney Fife on the Andy Griffith Show. Who wore a bow tie? I know I wore one in grammar school the old fashion kind with those metal clips you put under the collar and click close. Then came at one point the "Gambler Bow-Tie or Old West style with the those flaps hanging down. Back in the 1970's bow ties made a comeback and Joey Z wore them once more. Break out a bow tie and wear it to work see the response you get Guys. Remember fight those comments of how you look and say "IT'S BOW TIE DAY AND I'M WEARING ONE."
August is "WATERMELON MONTH" that good refreshing summer treat that is light, fruity and you can even spit out the pits with no one saying that's nasty. When Roe and I get a small melon we cut it up right away and put it in a plastic container to enjoy when we want to as a snack or dessert. If you have ever been to Epcot at Walt Disney World, in Mexico they made a watermelon drink, bits of the rink, seeds and all in a blender with chopped ice. That was one refreshing drink which I haven't seen made in years now. Bring it back Walt.
CHERRY TURNOVER DAY - Turnovers are great but I like apple the best. So all you turnover freaks enjoy one with coffee, tea or milk today.
Well it has been great writing once more, may you all have a great day and peace always to you.
