Columbus Day (Observed) – In honor of the man that did almost everything wrong (see my post from 10/11/2019) we close down all the banks, post office, business, congress and just about everything in the country to observe this day. If we’re going to celebrate Columbus Day, at least there should be football on all day like on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Kick Butt Day – No, it doesn’t mean dragging your noisy neighbor, the one that insists on playing music on the highest volume setting until the wee hours of the morning every night and showing them what the steel toe of your work boot is for. It’s a day set aside to take stock in your achievements and to set new goals for you to work harder and smarter to achieve. Created by the CEO of some company I’m sure.
Dessert Day – With Autumn now in full glory, we find ourselves spending more and more time indoors as those nights get longer and colder. That means football on television, lots of coffee in the pot, or beer in the fridge, and snacks. What better snack could there be than a sugar loaded cake or a plate of hot chocolate chip cookies. So as the snow gets closer, turn on the oven and dust off that old family recipe book and get started.
