Wednesday Reader March 20

WEDNESDAY READER | MARCH 20

Wednesday greetings wondrous readers of Daymaker - Presenting a fabulous read today full of fun and awe-some! Beginning with Leslie Elman's Trivia Bits in both Pop Quiz and Fascinating Stuff Of course, I've heard/read about the Frescoes style painting on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel - but I couldn't visualize it so I did the Google thing and found  *a pic and a little backstory *  mind blowing!  Unbelievably breathtaking. And Sailfish can travel at speeds of 68 mph.  W-H-A-T ?!! QUICK QUESTION Are you double jointed anywhere?  My pinky finger on my right hand is double jointed. I remember that my dad was double jointed on all fingers on both hands.  As a kid that was, "WOW COOL" stuff. Are you, or know someone who is? THE SCHOLAR'S 4 QUESTION TALE Is a great read.  I've been pondering - and have come up with - a couple "morals to the story" sort of thing.  I love tales that make me think beyond the story itself. FRIED CATFISH WITH JALAPENO TARTAR SAUCE Is sooooooo good.  As I wrote in the recipe, we served it at Hippie Cowboy and customers were wild about it.  Our little secret that made it unique was that we used my grandma Miller's recipe for frying trout.  It's a must-make recipe if you're a fan of fried catfish.

HEY-HEY EVERYONE! Presenting Daymaker Readable Art's Wednesday Reader.  Terrific line-up today. I've never really thought about the Quick Question regarding do fish ever get thirsty?  Ha!  Probably not. The POWER OF PUNCTUATION "speaks" for itself.  Pretty cool. My first pet memory was a doberman by the name of Mitzi (my dad was a big fan of dobies). We lived in Merriam, Kansas at the time.

WEDNESDAY READER | OCTOBER 11

Wednesday Greetings, Readers! Halloween season is upon us.  Have any plans or cool decorations you're displaying outside for all to see? Today's Wednesday Reader is full of fun and mischief. Beginning with Quick Question - What is something that used to scare you, but no longer does?  I can think of 2.  But I'm not telling.  You? Casanova cheesy lines are indeed cheesy - and they're a hoot! REMEMBER PAY PHONES AND PHONE BOOTHS?  Gosh, they sure have gone away, haven't they? Question - when's the last time you saw one or the other? I remember working on a commercial not that long ago.  The Craft Service person said that she and her 8 year old daughter were watching an older movie several nights before and one of the actors in the movie made a call in a phone booth. Her daughter said, "Mom, what's that thing all about?" I rolled with laughter!

WEDNESDAY READER | SEPTEMBER 20

HELLO HAPPY READERS AND GREETINGS 2nd TO THE LAST WEDNESDAY IN SEPTEMBER Presenting Wednesday Reader.  It's packed full and a great read. Leslie Elman does it again with the Pop Quiz and Fascinating Facts.  Giving us material to be the most interesting person in the room. I don't think I mentioned this before - but Leslie writes Q & A for Pub quizzes around the world.  How cool is that?  And you get to read her here! Quick Question re: what's our favorite day of the week.  Interesting - I actually believe we all have a favorite day even if we haven't called it out.  Mine is Thursday.  You? Who knew that a Cronut was a thing?  Not me.

WEDNESDAY READER | SEPTEMBER 6

Fun line-up of cool reading in today's Wednesday Reader. As an English major -- I did not know the answer in the Pop Quiz regarding Shakespeare and how he took out the majority of his characters. QUICK QUESTION - What's the weirdest thing I've seen multiple times on the side of the road.  Hands down -- One shoe.  You? I love. love. love. the God Bless Teacher Story. I'll be frank - not all teachers are created equally. My mom was a teacher -- 1st grade -- for years.  My mom was a Bonnie teacher (as in the story).  Hat tip, Mama. I remember - clearly - 4 teachers : Mrs. Simon, Ms. Potter, Mr. Warren and Mrs. Bailey who there is no doubt in my mind made an impact on my young life to who I am today. You? Chicken Parmesan Recipe is sooooooo delish.

5 FOR FRIDAY | FEBRUARY 10

Happy Friday, Everybody ! Picture line up: #1 Birds of a feather flock together on feeder outside my picture window.  Check out the cool ice cycles on the other side of the "roof" of the feeder.  A little something extra fun - for sure. #2 Daymaker in action.  My friend Marky rescued/adopted little "Beanie" from a home that didn't show the love nor did they want him.  Marky was definitely a Daymaker to this little fellow! He reports that "Beanie" is living the dream now.  Bathed, fed, sleeps inside on a brand new, little dog bed (previously, had slept outside on cold concrete) and feels loved - because he is.  Hat Tip, Marky! #3 Shadow play across my dining room table. #4 Dream on Dreamer.  We all know the stories of a message in a bottle, right?  Be on the look out for a message in a window.  Spotted this one while walking by a cool little shop in a small town nearby. Annie Lane has some solid thoughts about weight loss drug "fad." Eggs on a Stack recipe.  How fun are these?  I'll tell ya, they're a lot of breakfast-on-the-weekend fun food. 5 tried-and-true songs to give a listen to... Maybe over weekend Eggs on a stack breakfast?
