It would seem that we have become a society that marks the passing of time by the big five holidays our government considers worthy of time off for the masses--New Year's Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Card companies, like Hallmark, have added some of the lesser holidays to the list--Valentine's Day, Easter, Mothers' Day, Fathers' Day. Yet some of the most deserving holidays are ignored. No, I am not going to rant like I did about Columbus Day, but I do think that it is noteworthy that our stores are currently filled the all the accouterments of Thanksgiving and the first rush of the Christmas blitz because these two holidays generate dollars in the store's cash registers--the bottom line rules in a capitalist society while the holiday celebrating the men and women who serve in the armed services is largely ignored. This intrepid blogger went on a search for Veteran’s Day card to send to a special veteran, and surprise! there is not a single card on the shelves that commemorates the service of our veterans. So, I will say to all the veteran’s out there:
|Thank you for putting your lives on the line everyday.|
|What did one barfly say to the other?|
No worries, bro. I'll be your wingman.
Meanwhile, this crazy weather has everyone’s sinuses in an uproar. With flu season just around the corner, don’t forget to drop by Doc Nichol’s clinic for a flu shot. This everyready blogger got one yesterday. Feel a little under the weather today, but a little under the weather for a day or two is better than a full blown case of the flu. Nuff said.
