Happy Monday………..What exactly IS this Monday SPARK thing we do? Well, most of you know that Annie of McGuffy’s Reader – who started SPARKS – was hacked and has been on an extended break from blogging although her idea to spread some inspiration on Monday of every week goes on. Many of us who participated in her SPARKS Blog Hop and found value in sharing a thought on Monday continue doing that to hopefully give each other a “Monday boost” – perhaps something to think about to inspire us in the week ahead OR help us deal with something that’s on our mind. Why not join us by sharing something that SPARKS you? It might just start a spark in us too.
Since it’s President’s Day here in the USA, I spent quite a while reading quotes by our past and present Presidents to find something that “spoke” to me. There were SO MANY and many others that I had no idea were attributable to certain Presidents of my country. Quotes I’ve used for years but never knew WHO spoke them. My SPARK quote today is one of those. I’ve heard this before but did not know it was one of George Washington’s quotes.
Well time has proven this to be true…………………and even he knew it back in his day. Wise man was he………………………
Before I return to my nap I want to remind everyone tomorrow is TEASER TUESDAY. Remember to COMMENT when you get to class! The post is at a surprise (not regular blog) time so be on your toes (or paws as the case may be).
So today is “President‘s Day“ here in the US of A. We used to call this day “Washington’s Birthday” in honor of good old George but now we have lumped all Presidents in there with George (it’s crowded in there I’m sure, isn’t it George??).
Since it’s a Federal holiday all the government workers are off which means the stores will be crowded and there are lots of big sales being held everywhere. It’s just another excuse for retailers to go berserk which I suppose is good since their last BIG excuse for a sale was Christmas. My parents will NOT be joining in the shopping extravaganza. They have more sense than that (or maybe it’s just that they don’t NEED anything??).
Sammy Bucks…..worth every penny!!
Yesterday my friend Mollie did a way cool thing – her Mom Miss Stella did a book review for my Mom’s mystery novel “The Mystery of David’s Bridge”. Wasn’t that swell? AND she’s having a giveaway with an autographed copy of that book as well – all you have to do is leave a comment saying why you’d like to read it on her blog. EASY huh? THANK YOU MISS STELLA AND MOLLIE!!!
I stuck my nose out the door this morning – BRIEFLY – and it’s gonna be another out of sight cold day. I guess I’ll spend the day trying to find the perfect TUESDAY TEASER for you guys………I have an idea which one I want to use but I might change my mind. You know – I’m allowed to change my mind any time I want to – right Mom???
I hope you all have a wonderful Monday – even if it’s not a holiday where you are.
Kitty Hugs, Sammy (or maybe I’ll be President Sammy today!) 😀 😀
Happy President's Day!
It’s another holiday here in the US of A. President’s Day. Just another excuse for the mail service not to deliver mail. Just another excuse for the stores to have ridiculous sales and cause traffic jams at every Mall.
Humbug. However, I must say, I look rather splendid behind the podium don’t you think? Gives me an idea…….since people are having a tough time deciding on who to vote for in the next election – what about:
SAMMY KIMMELL FOR PRESIDENT?????
Oh – wait a minute – that means that I actually have to manage the government???? NEVER MIND.
Anyway, those of you who get to celebrate President’s Day by not having to work…….enjoy!
Sammy (just plain old regular Sammy the Cat)
