Happy May 1st! Like Steve at Carriage Traders said, “If this is any indication of how May will look…” Could we have asked for a nicer day? It’s only just begun and I’m looking forward to getting outside. From my personal Facebook page:
Another big thanks to person that threw their beer bottle on Bay Road last fall! I’ve had a flat tire every bike ride since. I’m headed to the bike shop to buy new tires today! On the bright side, I’m getting awesome at patching/changing tires.
That’s not to say that I keep riding over the same bottle of beer, but that the tire was damaged in some non-obvious way so that it keeps inducing the flats. Major bummer, but I can’t wait any longer when the weather’s this wonderful. So wonderful that I found myself searching for synonyms of “abundant” to use in the forecast. I thought “copious amounts of sunshine” had a nice ring to it.
As always, lots of reasons to celebrate. Today is Mother Goose Day, School Principal’s Day, National Chocolate Parfait Day, Global Love Day and Save The Rhino Day.
Mark me down for chocolate parfait day — celebrating that one shouldn’t be too easy. When possible, I like to celebrate these silly holidays. See my beautiful creation from National Shrimp Scampi Day.
On this date in 1931, the Empire State Building opened for the first time in New York and on this date in 1947, airplane radar was used for the first time. Keeping with the flight theme, today’s incorrectly answered Cash Call question was “who was the first US pilot to fly around the globe?” Bryan guessed “Amelia Earhart.” She didn’t make it.
The answer is Wiley Post…but to Bryan’s credit, neither Jenny Lewis nor I had heard of that name before. They must have skipped over that lesson in school. BTW, that puts the Cash Call pot up to $230.16.
May 1st means 4 days left til Cinco De Mayo and 11 left til Mother’s Day. Check out the Hits 95.9 Awesome Mom Giveaway if you’re looking to get your mom something really special this year. Rather than tell you more about what the surveys are saying moms want (spoiler alerts: it’s gifts of a sentimental nature/days off/spa treatments), I asked you what the worst Mother’s Day gift would be. Here’s what we came up with:
- A Vacuum
- Kitchen Appliances
- Jumper Cables
- A Weed Whacker
- An arrest warrant
- Membership for Jelly-of-the-month-club
I think the worst mothers day gift would be no gift at all or last year my daughter gave my mothers day gift that she made in school to my ex ( her father)
Enjoy the weather! You never know, it could snow next week.
