You make me Smile

What does Elvis, Smokey the Bear, Smiles and Clowns have in common? They all are recognized in August. August brings the last month of summer fun, the beginning of school for many, and fall will be right around the corner. This month has an eclectic list of holidays. Some of my favorites for this month include the observance the first week of 'National Smile Week' and it is also 'National Clown Week.' Which came first, the clown or the smile? And then we end the month with 'Be Kind to Humankind Week.' So I challenge everyone to give your fellow humankind a great big smile everyday. Sending a 'heartfelt card' just because' is always a sure way to put a smile on someone's face.

The world always looks brighter from behind a smile.

And the Quirky Holidays from WellCat
(these will always put a Smile on your face.)

Aug 7 Particularly Preposterous Packaging Day -- Buy anything lately? Did you ever succeed in getting the durn thing open? What do older people do when even mainstream society can’t open a simple bottle of aspirin, let alone a milk carton?
Aug 8 Sneak Some Zucchini onto Your Neighbors' Porch Day -- Due to overzealous planting of zucchini, citizens are asked to drop off baskets of the squash on neighbors’ doorsteps.
Aug 18 Bad Poetry Day -- After all the “good” poetry you were forced to study in school, here’s a chance for a pay back. Invite some friends over, compose some really rotten verse, and send it to your old high school teacher.
Aug 22 Southern Hemisphere Hoodie-Hoo Day -- Long awaited by our Southern-half friends, this is the day to go outdoors at high noon and yell "Hoodie-Hoo" to chase winter and make ready for spring. Annually, celebrated one month before the Autumnal Equinox.
Aug 28 Race Your Mouse Around the Icons Day -- While you're waiting for whatever it is to finally come up on your screen, race your mouse in and around the icons. Do it, and you'll feel peppy.
Aug 28 Crackers Over The Keyboard Day -- Live it up. Be free. Take some crackers and cookies to work and eat right over top of the keyboard. Show ‘em you’re still a free thinker.
Aug 29 More Herbs, Less Salt Day -- It’s healthier, zestier and lustier!
Aug 31 Love Litigating Lawyers Day -- Lawyer jokes abound, but when push comes to shove, these are the folks who can end up saving the day.

Keep on Smiling,
