Kev’s Daily Take On 10/25/2022

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.

Education and Information

NATIONAL FINE ART APPRECIATION DAY creates a gallery for us to peruse some wonderful artistic pieces.  Who are some of your favorite artists?  What are some of your favorite pieces?  I have always liked the Remington sculptures.

For Fun

SOUREST DAY celebrates all things that are sour or Saur.  Richard Ankli of Ann Arbor, Michigan created this day to honor his friend whose last name is Saur.  It has turned into a day for sour moods, sour foods and sour candies.  It’s gonna be hard to be grumpy with the weather as nice as it’s been – I may have to have a few lemon drops or a slice of lemon meringue pie.

CHUCKY THE NOTORIOUS KILLER DOLL DAY slashes its way into the Halloween season.  Not sure where this one came from, but there are plenty of Chucky fans out there to celebrate.  Charles Lee Ray (obvious name for a serial killer) gets shot and before he dies, he transfers his murderous soul to a “Good Guy Doll”.  Of course, the doll wants to possess someone to carry on his killing spree and this provides storylines for about 8 movies.  Watch a Chucky movie tonight – with the lights off.

On Today’s Menu…

WORLD PASTA DAY brings out the plate, napkin, fork, spoon and any kind of delicious pasta you want.  Get that fork twirling and your mouth slurping so you can celebrate this delicious day.

GREASY FOODS DAY wants us to keep those napkins handy as we heat up the oil and fry up some down home cookin’.  French fries are a given but throw in some chicken tenders coated in seasoned flour, some batter covered fish, corn dogs, hush puppies or whatever you like.  We found that a frozen waffle thrown in the fryer comes out tasting like a funnel cake. Enjoy this today and avoid the scale for a few days.
