It is difficult to get started.
When it comes to dealing with
an unknown quantity,
people are reluctant to trust
their own opinions,
It helps if two or three people
give you a boost.

To whom might you give a boost today?! ~ Ruth Kaiser, The Smiley Lady
Today’s Smiley picture is of Jalapeño Cheese Bread for both the start of Pepper Month and today’s Pepper Day. Yum!
Over on a month full of Smiley Silliness it’s Pumpkin Chucking Day. So good golly Miss Molly, all those people smashing pumpkins last night are really only guilty of not waiting a day.
I love this one that also falls on November 1st. It’s Give Up Your Should Haves Day. If you have a SHOULD HAVE in your life, figure out if you still can/still should, and if so do it. If there’s no doing it now, let that sucker go! Just use that knowledge like data in an experiment so that next time you are better equipped.
Happy birthday to Coco Crisp (1979) the wonderful Center Fielder who used to be on my wonderful Oakland A’s! Sad for him his new team lost the World Series, but I bet he felt lucky being there! Then there’s Lyle Lovett (1957), quoted above.
It’s also National Author Day. I hope that motivates you to look at my children’s books:
To Be a Friend, How do I do that?:
‘Twas the Night Before…, A Child’s Book of Gratitude:
A Smiley Book of Numbers, A Child’s Gratitude Journal:
A Smiley Book of Colors, a child’s book of Optimism:
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 Pepper Smiley you get in the Smiley-a-Day emailer is different from what you see here.
DID I MISS ANY GOOFY, SILLY, UPBEAT HOLIDAYS??
