Kev’s Daily Take On 09/26/2022

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Events and Celebrations

NATIONAL FAMILY DAY is all about hanging out with your loved ones.  There has never been a better time than now.

A tip of the hat goes to COMPLIANCE OFFICER DAY.  These people make sure everyone is following the procedures and that the company is up to date on them.  Thank you for what you do.

NATIONAL SITUATIONAL AWARENESS DAY reminds us how important it is to be aware of our surroundings.  Please, for safety’s sake and for those who care about you, know what’s going on around you.

JOHNNY APPLESEED DAY tells us about John Chapman, the man who really cared about the environment. Plenty of myths abound concerning him, but in reality, he educated quite a few people on the growing of trees and took care of a lot of sick ones himself.

LUMBERJACK DAY cuts us down to size as we contemplate the life of a woodsman.  A lot of work, a lot of fresh air and a lot of pancakes.  Well, I know two out of three of those is true.  Thank you for maintaining our forests.

NATIONAL DUMPLING DAY is served hot.  Dumplings come in many forms.  Some with chicken, some stuffed and some just fried.  Pick your favorite and enjoy.

NATIONAL CHIMICHANGA DAY celebrates another of those delicious dishes that came about by accident.  The founder of Macayo’s, a Mexican restaurant, accidentally dropped a burrito into a deep fryer and found out that he had created something quite good.  Incidentally, chimichanga in English, translates to “thingamajig”.

NATIONAL PANCAKE DAY is so good, it has to be celebrated twice a year.  Get your short stack on with some golden griddlecakes, some creamy butter, and some thick maple syrup.

Dear LORD, we ask that you watch those who watch over us – law enforcement.  Keep them safe on the job and let each of them know that they are making a difference for the good and that nothing is worth taking your life over.  I would also ask that you would be with those suffering from mesothelioma and their loved ones.  Let them turn to you and not away.  Thank you, Jesus, Amen.
