Kev’s Daily Take On 10/01/2022

 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 HAIR DAY recognizes all that has to do with our locks and tresses.  From the people who take care of it to all of the care products, hair dryers, curling irons and such, this day appreciates hair.

If you like hot air balloons, then Albuquerque is the place for you this week.  The ALBUQUERQUE INTERNATIONAL BALLOON FIESTA goes on from October 1-9 and features over 600 hot air balloons.

WORLD VEGETARIAN DAY leaves the meat off the table.  If you choose this dietary lifestyle, good for you, it’s healthy and can be tasty.  I just love my animal flesh too much to try it.

NATIONAL BOOKSHOP DAY encourages us to visit our local bookstore and find that perfect tome, novel or short story to peruse.

NATIONAL FIRE PUP DAY and NATIONAL BLACK DOG DAY give a big tail wag to some special dogs.  Dalmatians have been the fire pup of choice since the 1700’s and black dogs are, well…black dogs – and not just a song by Led Zeppelin.

Tis the season for everything to be pumpkin flavored and NATIONAL PUMPKIN SPICE DAY fits right in.  Not too big on the pumpkin spiced coffees but I do like a good pumpkin spice ale.

HOMEMADE COOKIES DAY sends out a wonderful aroma.  Bake up a batch of your favorites and share them…with me. 😊
