He is a special moment in my daily life. Happy Birthday Russell!
Today is also: Housewife Day, this day recognizes the importance of stay at home wives and moms. Also referred to as "Retro" Housewife Day. These wonderful, caring creatures, build and enrich strong family environments. They help to instill family values and good character.
Housewife is an old term. It hails back to the days when one income could support the family in a manner of comfort. It was also a time when women did not have equal rights. While these days are long gone, women views of working or staying at home, fall on both sides of the fence. The decision to be a "housewife", or stay at home mom, is still preferred by many. Unfortunately, income needs often necessitate going to work. Five stars to each and every one!
Today is also: Sandwich Day...
English history reports that John Montagu was the 4th Earl of Sandwich. Among other things, the 4th Earl of Sandwich was a heavy gambler. Montagu often spent many long hours in London's gambling parlors. In 1762, he created the sandwich, by putting meat between two pieces of bread. This allowed him to remain at the gambling table for long periods of time. Obviously, the sandwich was named after him
Celebrate this special day by enjoying your favorite sandwich.
What is your favorite sandwich?
I have only two...Hot pastrami on rye with German mustard...
And....a summertime sandwich with fresh tomato, thinly sliced sweet onion, fresh basil leaves and fresh made mayonnaise on fresh baked Sourdough bread. Yummy!
