Love Your Aunt Day
Only an aunt can
give hugs like a mother,
keep secrets like a sister
and share love like a friend.
This Tampon Dispenser Smiley
is called Aunt Flo Smiley.
It’s also Penguin Day. See a penguin from the California Academy of Sciences with a smiling belly over at a Month of Smiley Silliness. Check out all the silly Smileys and accompanying quotes on the Smiley monthly calendar.
Be sure to pop outside tonight and look to the sky for observance of Astronomy Day. Lying on the grass at night, gazing at the stars is one of the lovely things about warmer weather that I so enjoy. I hope you take the time to let this source of pleasure give you pleasure. It’s really not hard to grab a blanket and head outside. I know sometimes, it seems like “why bother?”, but the answer is that bothering is worth it.
Today is also Eeyore‘s birthday. Here’s some wise words from a grey donkey: A little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference.
Today we also say happy birthday to Barbra Streisand (1942), Cedric the Entertainer (1964) and, Shirley MacLaine (1934). I’d love to meet Barbra. How about you? Whom would you pick for a dinner date?
Dog lovers out there have 2 holidays to celebrate today. It is both Seeing Eye Guide Dog Day and Bulldogs are Beautiful Day. But the most beautiful dogs (and the healthiest) are the mutts! Adopt, don’t shop!
Over on a Month of Smiley Silliness we celebrate Rain Puddle Day. Anyone else feeling a tad tired of all the rain? After 5 years of draught, California has overflowing with rain and rain puddles.
