hello July 3

Howdy all!  Happy day before official Independence Day 2024! It's hot here!  But such is this time of year.  I run across people who seem to think this heat thing unusual.  I disagree. I'd be shocked if temps were in the 70's or 80's.  Just won't happen.  Never has as I recall.  Summer heat is on full throttle.  Gotta deal with it until Fall.  I remind myself to hydrate and find shade or air conditioning when possible and just deal with it.  No brainer, right?  Ha PRESENTING JULY 3rd WEDNESDAY READER: LESLIE ELMAN'S TRIVIA AND FASCINATING FACTS Are so interesting to me.  Frankly, super fascinating. QUICK QUESTION What's the most beautiful place I have personally seen? Hands down - the Grand Tetons.  You? COLLECTION OF OXYMORONS Are make-ya-look-think-scratch your head and chuckle!  Might you have another 1 or 2 to add to the list? EASY BUTTERMILK PIE RECIPE Slice of delish.  I like to top my slice of buttermilk pie with bananas.  But strawberries and peaches are stellar as well. Don't forget the fresh whipped cream.  Deal breaker if you don't (unless you just dislike fresh whipped cream - that would be absolutely crazy talk to me - ha!)

Hump day greetings this last Wednesday of May 2024 - Shoot!  May rolled in, kissed us with all its beauty, and is about to roll out for the year and June will be joining us super soon.  Time marches on for sure. Cool line-up of interestings and laughs today: Beginning with - LESLIE ELMAN'S TRIVIA I actually guessed the correct answer to question #3 of Pop Quiz.  Edelweiss! BOOM! -- I LOVE the movie "Sound of Music" and the soundtrack and I remember in the movie the dad (actor Christopher Plummer) sang the song Edelweiss.  I had to do the YouTube look up thing and listen to it for memory lane purposes and here's the link so you, too, can revisit the beautiful song from the incredible "Sound of Music" movie here it is * Edelweiss - Sound of Music * QUICK QUESTION What always cheers me up when I think about it -  hmmm - many things - I can't put my favorite on just one!  You? GENERAL TABLE MANNERS My mom and grandparents totally taught these lessons to us as kids - and - it was great to read and be reminded of all.  Refresher course sort of thing! And I passed them along to my son, Hunter,  - little stinker - didn't act like he was listening all the way when he was young.  But he was because he knows proper etiquette table manners + kindness ways to move in life as an adult.  Success! EASY CRUNCHY ASIAN SLAW Is a must, must, must make.  So good and so versatile and I'd be surprised if it doesn't become one of your favorite recipes you make on repeat -- and know it by heart!  (As in how we used to know many peoples' phone numbers by heart - back in the day - before our little phones replaced our memorization skills. ha)

However, with school season about ready to come to a close and summer vacation is in both kids and teachers minds, I couldn't help but add it again. Kinda like watching a favorite movie again just because it's special. I love to watch/read something of chill bump value. IN HONOR OF ALL TEACHERS is that. Hat Tip to all the wonderful teachers teaching our next generations! We applaud you!

Hello Wednesday and Hello Daymakers! Presenting Wednesday Reader this fine day of May 8. Pretty sure you'll love the read today as much as I do/did putting it together: LESLIE ELMAN'S TRIVIA Is so fascinating and I always feel smarter reading her pieces.  Whoever heard the word "Kleptoparasite"?  Raise your hand if you have.  Not me.  But I do now and I might pull the word out from time to time just to see people's brows do a brow question mark thing.  Ha! QUICK QUESTION How many animal sounds can I make?  I actually started making the sounds to count and my cats awoke from their catnaps, at full attention, gathering around to see if I'd gone C-R-A-Z-Y.   They amuse me and from time to time I try and amuse them. I counted 8.  How about you? OUTTA THE MOUTHS OF BABES Is beauty-full.  I don't even have a favorite take away.  All are heartbeats of awwwwww. HERB SHRIMP ON THE BARBIE Is an absolute must make.  I'm not even going to go on and on about it.  Just gotta trust me.  Once you make it - you'll be a diehard fan all summer long!  This summer - next summer - and all summers forward!  Get ready for people to ask for the recipe because it's gonna happen.
