http://oh.dubliner.se/In my humble opinion, it’s pretty slim pickins’ where holidays are concerned this week. So much so that we’re gonna skate past them, in order to fast-forward to the end of the week.
First, let’s celebrate Hairstyle Appreciation Day on April 30. I suppose the best way to celebrate is to look in the mirror and exclaim that you like your current hairstyle. If, for whatever reasons, you find this a tough assignment, take a look at some of these hairstyles.
Surely after getting a look at these, you’re ready to go to the mirror afterall, and truly appreciate your hairstyle.
The 30th is also National Hairball Awareness Day. I have a feeling that anyone who owns a cat is well aware of hairballs, and probably doesn’t need to be reminded of their existence.
As we move along, can you believe Saturday is the first day of May? Time flies when you’re having fun. And what could be more fun that celebrating Mother Goose Day on May 1. (It was a rhetorical question, people.)
My affinity for this day stems to my childhood memories of Hazard, KY, where my aunt, uncle and cousins still live. I remember going to see my great-aunt Cassie, who if memory serves, lived very near to the Goose. By goose I mean the Mother Goose building. The sandstone oval-shaped exterior looked like a nest, holding the oversized goose head above. It was kind of like the giant ice cream cone at the Dairy Freeze that caught my eye as a child – bigger than life and magical in quality.
The goose’s eyes were made of headlights, and at one point, used to light up at night.
My theory was that the real Mother Goose lived there. And if I was able to get inside, there would be rooms full of golden eggs and Mother Goose would look just like she does in the story books.
Hopefully, my cousin Susan will chime in with a Mother Goose memory or two, as well!
That’s it for now. Until next week, get your party on!
