Silly Holidays!

Today is "the" National Watermelon Day here in the US… I bet you didn’t know that. I didn’t either until I heard it in the morning news today. I don’t know what the significance is of this day to many but obviously there is for some otherwise why did August 3rd become the official day for it. Just for giggles, I googled other bizarre “holidays”. And just for the month of August, here’s what my “diligent research” found:

29 More Herbs, Less Salt Day

30 Frankenstein Day

30 Toasted Marshmallow Day

31 National Trail Mix Day

We should get together and declare a National Microstockers Month, I pick September because I want it to be next month already (plus that’s when I joined DT). Or is there one already?

Forgive me for this silly blog but if nothing else, I hope it gave you some idea of a next photo session concept… how about images of racing pc mice for the 28th? sneaking zucchini onto your neighbor’s porch for the 8th? herbs & salt for the 29th?

Meanwhile, enjoy some watermelon today and I wish all of you a happy national watermelon day!
