★~ Hoodie Hoo Day:
Walk outside at high noon today (whatever the time zone you live in), extend your arms above your head, wave them around rapidly while doing your favorite little dance, and shout “hoodie hoo.” Apparently, this Hoodie Hoo sound is supposed to scare winter away and prepare for spring, which is exactly one month away.

Loving our pups comes pretty naturally to us. And we always have plenty to love on. And since it love your pets day I may even smile at our bird. You know, the one that hates me. I think I want to love a teacup pig…isn’t it cute!
Want to memorise best moments with your small friends? Hire cat,dog or bird photography singapore for that!
And here are a few more cuties.
★~ Cherry Pie Day:
George Washington’s cherry-tree-chopping story has long been debunked by historians as nationalistic myth, but according to his biographers, our first president did love cherries, which may be why the cherry pie is associated with him.
English tradition credits Queen Elizabeth the First with having created the cherry pie dessert, but I am simply not falling for the idea that Queen Elizabeth spent a lot of time in her kitchen pitting cherries!
In case you are wondering, President Lincoln’s favorite dessert was apple pie. America produces about 300 million pounds of cherries each year, 75 percent of which come from Michigan.

★~ Texting Tip:
This is why you should always let people know you’ll be away from your phone if you’re in the middle of a texting conversation and become unavailable:
That texting conversation just cracked me up. Probably because it is so familiar to me.
The world didn’t stop while I was sick so I’ve been busy catching up. I finally bought the paint to paint my bedroom with this weekend (hopefully). I’ve had sample colors on the wall for two years. I’m not usually this indecisive but I hadn’t found a color that said pick me until now. I’ve decided on a pale grey color. I can hear you thinking, “It took her two years to decide on grey….!” I’ll let you know how it goes.
It’s dearly departed Joe’s birthday today. He was born in 1957 and would have turned 57 today. I guess, I’ll never stop wishing he was here to blow out his birthday candles; then again that is a pretty good wish.
Don’t forget to Hoodie Hoo! Odd Loves Company!

Hoodie Hoo in the airport today—it might turn some heads but hey—it is always good to turn heads.
I graduated from John Glenn High School and met the famous astronaut and had my picture taken with him. Aren’t you impressed? Maybe not.
Thinking about you today on Joe’s birthday—I am sure it is a bittersweet day. Hugs.
Turning heads is a good thing.
Very impressed. I think astronauts are way cool.
Thanks for the hug. It’s appreciated.
Love Your Pet Day will not be difficult for many!
Don’t think I caught the significance of the 20th for both of us before…John passed 13 years ago today. It’s all ok. Nice picture of your boys!
Wow. That is interesting. Connections always are. Another thoughtful milestone – death anniversaries. Death and grief sucks but we manage and yes eventually it is all ok.
There was a weather lady who always reminded us to Hoodie Hoo on this date — she’s retired now, and no one seems to remember. Thanks for letting me know!
Love the photo of Cole with Rascal(??) buried beside his laptop (and of course, the birthday picture of Cole and Joe). This can’t be an easy occasion for y’all — but I trust the good memories cancel out the sadness.
I’m ready for Spring NOW!!
We have to remember! We have to shout out and have hope! Your most welcome.
Yep that is Rascal. Nothing comes between her and her brother.
Lots of good memories all the way around.
I will second your motion for Spring!
Aziz Ansari is so funny. His comedy routine on texting and dating is so funny.
I’ll shout out for spring. I’m ready for warmer weather.
Great pictures. Cole was sure a cute baby. He looks so serious blowing out that candle with his daddy.
I giggled hard. Thanks Cole was pretty cute and very serious about birthdays.
