The Chatter Box

By Deborah Bennett

We all know that Feb. 14th was Valentine’s Day. But did you know that there are several other notable “days” in February?

Feb. 21st (today) is Card Reading Day; Feb. 22nd is Walking the Dog Day; Feb. 23rd is International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day; Feb. 24th, National Tortilla Chip Day – my personal favorite; Feb. 26th, Tell a Fairy Tale Day; Feb. 27th , No Brainer Day – another day for me; and Feb. 28th , Public Sleeping Day – don’t plan to do that.

February is also: American Heart Month, An Affair to Remember Month, Black History Month, Canned Food Month, Creative Romance Month, Great American Pie Month, National Cherry Month, National Children’s Dental Health Month, National Grapefruit Month and National Weddings Month.

It seems there is a “day” and “month” for anything and everything! I am waiting for “Take the Wife Out to Eat Day”, “No Telemarketers on the Phone Day”, “Someone Else Does the Dishes Day”, “Sleep Through the Night Day”, “No Laundry Day”, “He Makes the Bed Day”, “Kids Pick Up Their Toys Day”, “No T.V. Commercials Day”, or just a “Do Nothing All Month.”

I can dream, can’t I?

Happy birthday this week to: Clint Davis Jr., Susan Welch, Tykeise Oliver, Zachery Keller, Janasia Brady, Blake Lane, Dee Dee Goodwin, Brooks Brinson, Abbi Ridings, Adam Oglesby, Matt Thompson, Richard Odom, Becky Thomas, Linda Jackson, Fran Boynton, Charles Burke Jr. and Lynn Pierce.

Happy anniversary this week to: Mr. and Mrs. Chris Chance, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Burke and Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Wiggins.
