Camp in Your
No pessimist ever discovered
the secret of the stars,
or sailed to an uncharted land,
or opened a new doorway
for the human spirit.
~ Helen Keller
That quote is a bit of a stretch…
camping=sleeping under the stars…
As we continue Watermelon Seed Spitting Week/Have Fun With Fruit Week, I had this happy thought: Clearly we do this all the time–just look at all the food Smileys found by Smiley Captains. Since today is Watermelon Day, you can get right on with your celebrating.
Sit Under a Palm Tree Day is also celebrated today. Oh, to be under a palm tree! Oh how I love going to Hawaii and doing just that!
Both the Donut and the Chocolate Eclair claim today as their own. To keep them from duking it out, we might all need to eat one of both. I’m up for the task. Are you? FYI: Supposedly the donut was Invented on this day in 1847. I’ll have to check with my donut expert on that one. Paolo?
There are a whole bunch of people celebrating birthdays today. If you could pick just one to share a smiling birthday cake with, whom would you choose? Meryl Streep (1949), Cyndi Lauper (1953), Carson Daly (1973), Kris Kristofferson (1936), and Freddie Prinze (1954).
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. Even the Smiley you get in the emailer is often different. Today you get a different Smiley for Camp in Your Backyard Day.
