Hello Guys and Dolls:
Hope you all had a great holiday weekend and now its back to work and for me I have to get started on some of my little projects that I wanted to do. Now for some holidays to raise our mugs to today.
NEWSPAPER CARRIER DAY - Those days of carrying that heavy bag filled with the morning or evening papers are gone. Now papers are still delivered to the carrier's house but mostly delivered by car. The only thing that has not changed is getting up early. When I was in grammar school, I took over my friend's paper route for 3 weeks while he was on vacation. Lucky me I had the evening route that was a lot of fun, plus I made money. Back in my youth days we had the Trentonian which was the morning news and the Trenton Times the evening edition. Those were the true newspaper days, I'm afraid the Internet some day will totally replace the newspapers in general. For all you carriers enjoy the day you deserve the credit for delivering in all kinds of weather. I'll remember the mail carriers when their holiday rolls around.
EAT AN EXTRA DESSERT DAY - There were days that Joey Z had an extra dessert but now-a-days its lucky I eat a dessert. Don't get me wrong I do enjoy a dessert now and then. I recently enjoyed some TastyKake pies from the newly opened WaWa store those apple and blueberry pies sure hit the spot with a cup of coffee. Another favorite of mine right now is Graham Crackers and hot tea in the evening hour. If you ever take a cruise, don't be shy you can eat all the desserts you want and no one will say a word.
BEETLE BAILEY DAY - Not much to say about good old Beetle Bailey, except that he was one of my favorite cartoons in my younger days. I loved the old cartoons, Nancy, The Wizard of Id, The Katzenjammer Kids, Charlie Brown, Terry and the Pirates and tons of others I can't recall.
For you nut lovers we celebrate "MACADAMIA NUT DAY." I love them but they are really expensive to buy. Lately my cravings are for pistachio nuts I can't get enough of them and besides they are good for your circulation as one Hispanic gentleman told Roe and I at our local grocery store. Who am I to doubt this man's knowledge of nuts?
