When a train goes through a tunnel
and it gets dark,
you don’t throw away the ticket
and jump off.
You sit still and trust the engineer.
~ Corrie Ten Boom
Train Day is celebrated this day to commemorate the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad and the hammering in of the Golden Spike, in 1869. And just because I have a ton of Train Smileys, there’s a completely different Train Smiley in today’s Daily Smiley Mailer.
If you’re a lover of Barbie Dolls, it’s Barbie’s birthday. She made her debut this day in 1958. Besides Barbie, today we also say happy birthday to Billy Joel (1949) and Rosario Dawson (1979).
BTW, the Smileys and holidays on a month full of Smiley Silliness are all different than the ones you see in the Daily Smiley.
