Today’s post comes from tim
February is the month i was born
back in the day i was born the day after george washingtons birthday and every other year in school they would take off geroge washingtons birthday then on the following year they would take off abraham lincolns birthday. i suppose i was in 4th or 5th grade the year they declared we would now have presidents day and it would celebrate the two of them together. ill be the younger people of today have no idea tht the 12th is abrahams bd and the 22nd is georges bd.
about that time the decided armasists day should become veterans day and honor all wars instead of giving each war its own day ve day and jvj day for ww2 and armasists day for ww1 youve already got christmas thanksgiving easter new years and 4th of july, columbus day is a holiday that gets littel respect and form what i understand about how he treated people he should have been .martin luther kings day valentines day st patricks day april fools day may day june doesnt need a holiday june is too glorious to steal a day from celebrate every day in june, the state fair september and october are available for holiday unless you germans already celebrate october fest halloween is for kids but then we roll into the biggys with thanksgiving christmas and new years like bowling pins waiting to be knocked down in rapid succesion then we are back to february again.
it seems like we got the bases covered but there have got to be couple things overlooked i guess mothers day and fathers day sneak their way in their and hallmark tired grandparents day but i think it failed we used to celebrate richard nixons bd with a black cake in january and i alway remember that kurt vonnegut is 11/11 because it lucky and happens to be armasist day too. albert einstein is the same as my kids on 3/14 ( ive got 2 kids with the same birthday 4 years apart just so i wouldnt forget i married my wife on 01/01 /01 my parents anniversary and my daughters anniversary are both august 4th and i just know i am missing something
my favorite movie is harvey but another favorite is a thousand clowns and the quote that comes to mind is:
Murray Burns: Irving R. Feldman’s birthday is my own personal national holiday. I did not open it up for the public. He is proprietor of perhaps the most distinguished kosher delicatessen in our neighborhood, and, as such, I hold the day of his birth in reverence.
You got one?
