More than 180,000 men and women serve in Army Reserve Units in all 50 states, 5 U.S. territories and 20 different time zones across the world. In 1908, Congress formed the Medical Reserve Corps, which was made up of 160 doctors and when the Organized Reserves for officers was added on it became the Army Reserves. We thank you for your tremendous service to your country and wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY ARMY RESERVE!
Our Furry Friends
Here is a day which I wish didn’t have to be. NATIONAL LOST DOG AWARENESS DAY encourages us to make sure our own pets don’t get lost, what to do if they do happen to get out and what to do if you come across someone else’s lost dog. We were faced with this about a year ago when our neighbor corralled a couple of dogs who were roaming around her house. She really didn’t have anywhere to keep them until the owner could be found, so my wife volunteered our yard. Allie then went on social media posting about these friendly pooches while the neighbor called the number on the dog’s tag. We were prepared to keep them over night when the owner showed up a couple of hours later. Do what you have to, to keep your doggies safe and sound.
Celebrate You with…
Are you looking to shake things up? If so, NATIONAL TAKE A CHANCE DAY is for you. Going out on a limb can be as simple as taking a different route to work, or as thrilling as blowing off work and going sky diving. Choose your level of daring and have at it.
To the Great Outdoors
NATIONAL PICNIC DAY gives us a great excuse to go find a scenic spot, sit down with the ones we care about and have a nice lunch. Pack your picnic basket with your favorite foods, spread your blanket and enjoy a nice time outdoors.
Thou shouldst observe NATIONAL TALK LIKE SHAKESPEARE DAY with a wit and a sharp tongue. All the world’s a stage and words are easy, like the wind; faithful friends are hard to find. So, to thine own self be true, and to be or not to be is a question for we know what we are, but we don’t know what we may be.
On Today’s Menu…
Our dessert of the day is one of my favs – NATIONAL CHERRY CHEESECAKE DAY. Take that creamy cheesecake on the graham cracker crust and top it off with some sweet cherries. I will definitely be celebrating this one.
