NATIONAL PUZZLE DAY – the best conversations I ever had with my dad were either in a fish hut or over a jigsaw puzzle. With the top of our heads facing each other and hands busy, we seemed to feel more comfortable to share our thoughts. There was always a puzzle on our dining room table and it was not uncommon for one of us to be walking around with a piece of the puzzle in our pocket so that we could be the one to finish the work of art! I now have a puzzle table and have noticed that once anyone sits down at that table, they are completely sucked in and must be dragged away hours later. Enjoy a puzzle today, whether it be a jigsaw, crossword, Sudoku, or word jumble.
NATIONAL CORN CHIP DAY – one of the saltiest treats ever! I can feel my lips shriveling even as I think about them. Must. Buy. Corn. Chips.
