Memorial Day is this weekend.
I recognize that for many it is a day of memory and mourning.
However, it is also the weekend that kicks summer off in the US with camping trips and barbecues.
Here are 11 tips to make the kick off camping trip memorable…
Tell you what… are you in cubicle land right now?
You want to have the most fun you’ll have today?
- Grab a sheet of paper
- Crumple it into a ball
- Stand up
- Say “Hey” to one of the nearby cubicle dwellers
- Toss the crumpled paper to / at them
- Wait for it to be thrown back to /at you.
If you try this and find it fun, please feel free to send me 99 cents.
You’ve paid as much and more for worse entertainment on your phone or iPad…
Her beauty felt, as much as seen
She smells of love like the earth smells green
In pain and sweat, she brought forth life
My daughter’s mother, my loving wife
Now up at dawn preparing meals
Scouring the web for family deals
Unpaid taxi running, wheeling
Coupon clipping, groupon dealing
Planning events with keen precision
Guiding our lives with tough decision
Does more in one day than most do in a week
And still makes time to caress my cheek
I stand in wonder, bewildered, awed
I look at her and I thank my God
My luck’s unbound and love unmatched
Some days I wonder if there’s a catch
For I don’t deserve this treasured fate
To be matched with such an amazing mate
Once a year? What can I say?
EVERY day should be Mother’s Day…
One week left… if you’re just now looking for Mother’s Day ideas, I fear for you brother.
But maybe I can help.
Not long ago, the only “Mom” to worry about was my own… but there’s a new Mom on the block, my wife!
I’m a young dad… 4 years… I’m learning, but I still SUCK at Mother’s Day.
If you’re like me, here’s some ideas that might make things smoother for both of us this year…
At some point in your life, you may have come across somebody who amazed you with a magic trick.
Obnoxiously loud street performer.
And maybe you said to yourself…
wow, I’d like to be able to do that!
Maybe you stood in a magic shop… even bought something… but you’re still not doing magic for anyone.
I mentioned one type of magic in my last post, but now I’m talking about “pick a card, any card” kind of magic.
I’m no pro… I’m not even good. But some friends and family members know in the back of their head that Mike is a magic guy.
I HAVE mystified… I HAVE amazed.
And you can to.
