Man cannot live
by bread alone;
have peanut butter.
~ James A. Garfield
Nobody ever made a peanut butter cookie better than my kid Darren. Boy, I miss that little cookie maker! The whole empty nest think really sucks.
Over on a month full of Smiley Silliness it’s Pretzel Day. You have surely noticed how every pretzel bears a Smiley Face. Can you catch the Smiley Face Pretzel in our music video Do You See What I See? And, man oh man, peanut butter pretzels are yummy!
On this day in TV History 2 momentous events occurred: In 1966 the first episode of Batman aired (the one with live actors and millionaire Bruce Wayne). Then in 1971, for the first time ever, a toilet was heard flushing. It happened on All in the Family. Before that flush, censor had never allowed anything so crass on TV. So quaint. Almost 5 decades later and good golly Miss Molly how standards have changed!
Happy birthday wishes for Jack London (1876), Oliver Platt (1960), and Kirstie Alley (1951).
BTW, the Smileys and holidays on a month full of Smiley Silliness are all different than the ones you see here on the website’s Daily Smiley.
