Happy Parents’ Day?

Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica

I was digging around to see which companies were set to release their quarterly financial reports this week. And I stumbled onto a few interesting notables for the week ahead.

Today happens to be Parents’ Day. It’s held the fourth Sunday of every July. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has said: "Replacing Mother's Day and Father's Day with a Parents' Day should be considered, as an observance more consistent with a policy of minimizing traditional sex-based differences in parental roles.”

I guess it’s just a sign of today’s political correctness. Nevertheless, it sounds pinheaded to me.

Sanity returns tomorrow with Gorgeous Grandma Day. According to the Gorgeous Grandma website she is every woman over fifty, sixty or seventy who loves life — and lets everyone know it!

On Tuesday it’s Tell an Old Joke Day … just to through a little humor into your week.

Thursday we have All or Nothing Day. Do something you’ve never done before or always wanted to do.

Friday it’s Take Your Houseplants for a Walk Day. Take your wilted house plant for a stroll around the block without feeling like a complete idiot.

Saturday it’s your chance to honor our pioneer heritage by celebrating National Cowboy Day.

And at the same time, you can go off your diet with a handful of milk chocolates, since the 28th is also National Milk Chocolate Day.

So there you have it, a week full of days to help you live each to its fullest!
