Well, here comes February 2023, the shortest month of the year. Just a little tidbit of knowledge for you. This month is a once in a lifetime month. There are exactly four Sundays, four Mondays, four Tuesdays, four Wednesdays, four Thursdays, four Fridays, and four Saturdays. This only happens once every 823 years. Enjoy it.
Just 28 days of chilly weather with a few pretty good days of warm weather. On Thursday, 2 February we have an American Legion meeting at the new Vet Hall. But this day is also Groundhog Day, or what we call “Bee Cave Bob Day” around here. Look it up. Bee Cave Bob is an Armadillo who comes out and looks for his shadow. No stinkin’ groundhogs around these parts anyway. You may not believe me, but this is true!
Four Chaplain’s Day is on 3 February. Read about these brave US Navy guys from the WWII era. An amazing story of bravery and valor. They were true heroes.
In the year 1910, the Boy Scouts of America was founded on 8 February. 113 years of teaching and bringing up young men correctly.
Former President Lincoln was born on 12 February. He was, and will always be known, as one of our greatest Presidents. You know the story. Teach it to your kids and grandkids.
Do not. I repeat, DO NOT forget 14 February. Hearts and Candy. Cards and Love. Flowers, lots of pretty Spring flowers… If you don’t remember, you will be reminded. Order some beautiful flowers for the one that you love. You will be a hero in your house. Cook her a breakfast or take her out to a nice place to eat. Make the bed. Clean up around the house. Just a few tips for the wise!!
Don’t forget to make the VFW meeting on Thursday, 16 February at the new Vet Hall too!
President’s Day is observed on Monday, 20 February. George Washington’s Birthday is actually on 22 February. Remember the General and our First President. He was a good man and a Patriot. He did not lie. We could use a little of this type of conduct right now. Ash Wednesday also falls on the 22nd.
Thus, closes out the month of February 2023. I will be back soon!
