THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Life is like a roller coaster, live it, be happy, enjoy life.
This DIL’s birthday is another long distance one and as usual the card went out in the mail. This doesn’t make this day any less special though, I’m wishing her a very happy day !
Rollercoaster Day is also celebrated annually on the 16th of August. It is believed that the date was chosen to mark August 16th, 1898, which was when the very first patent for a rollercoaster ride was issued.
Life is like a roller coaster and it will always have its up and downs… Life is unpredictable. We can’t always be certain of what is going to happen next. It sometimes feels like you’re on a roller coaster. It takes curvy twists and turns. It makes you go backwards or spins you upside down on your head. It takes steep long drops that make you scream in fear and delight all at the same time. When it is over with, you feel grateful to be done and alive. You wouldn’t want to miss the thrill of the ride, but you are glad it’s behind you.
Our temps have dropped for a couple of days and we are in the lower 80’s. Its still very humid and we have scattered showers predicted for most of the week.
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC Tuesday !
Today is Bratwurst Day! Bratwurst is a heavily spiced sausage, usually enjoyed on a roll with mustard or by itself with a side of sauerkraut. These sausages are generally made from pork, veal, or beef. Truly dedicated fans can attend the annual Bucyrus Bratwurst Festival in Ohio to celebrate this historical dish.
Today, grab a ‘brat’ in honor of Bratwurst Day.
