Day of the Potato
My idea of heaven is a
great big baked potato
and someone to share it with.
~ Oprah Winfrey *
It’s also the start of Nude Recreation Week over on a calendar of a month full of Smiley Silliness. And no coincidence, it’s also Laughter Week. Who wouldn’t laugh at a bunch of people recreating in their birthday suits.
You might want to resist celebrating today’s two food holidays for the potato and raisin bread, if you also want to put on your bikini in honor of it’s debut, this day in 1946.
Funny coincidence, today is the release date of Elvis‘ 1st record “That’s Alright” in 1954. Maybe he was singing to all of us who feel shy about prancing around in a bikini.
Today we say happy birthday to Edie Falco (1963) and Huey Lewis (1950). Coincidentally, I have actually worn a bikini in the company of birthday boy Huey Lewis during a waterskiing weekend back in 1985.
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.
Plus, as is often the case, the Potato Smiley you get in the Smiley-a-Day emailer is different from what you see here.

I promise to never give your info away,

* I’m a big Oprah fan and was one of a small handful that started the OWNambassadors on Facebook and Twitter to promote her new TV network. If you’re not watching OWNtv, you’re missing out! You can be an OWN Ambassador by tweeting during live shows using the #OWNambassadors hashtag. Oprah brings so much goodness into the world. She gets people talking about things that change their lives. Thanks for that, Oprah. And BIG THANKS for this!
