Kev’s Daily Take On 09/28/2022

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

WOMEN’S HEALTH AND FITNESS DAY is for the gals.  Ladies, please take care of yourselves and get your screenings and regular visits to your doctors.  We could all live a healthier lifestyle, but today is about you and us guys would like you around for a long time.

NATIONAL SON’S DAY follow on the heels of National Daughters Day.  Give your he-man a hug or a phone call on his special day.  He deserves it.  I will be getting hold of mine to let him know how proud I am of him.

GOOD NEIGHBOR DAY reminds us that we are not in this alone.  Letting people reach out to you is just as important as reaching out to other people.  We all need a little help every now and then and knowing you have someone you can count on makes a big difference.

Hoist a mug to DRINK BEER DAY.  It’s your suds of choice so enjoy your favorite brew.

It’s been a while since we have had a dessert of the day, but this one makes up for that.  STRAWBERRY CREAM PIE is like the last sweet remnant of summer before the pumpkin spice wave hits head on. Strawberries and cream wrapped up in a pie.  Yes, please.
