The Wednesday Medley is hosted by Terri over at Your Friend from Florida.
The questions usually start with the National Day and follow on from there. No rules and there is no obligation. Link up if you want to over at Terri's site and see who else is joining in the fun.
(There are so many other things being celebrated today that I
think we need to give them some attention, too!)
2. National Mother Goose Day was founded in 1987. Can you name a nursery rhyme that would fit your life as it was in 1987? If you are a youngster and not yet born in 1987, you may pass, of course, but do you have a favorite nursery rhyme? HERE is a list of nursery rhymes.
I probably had lots as my firstborn was almost a year old in 1987. And now I'm on to Grandchildren and we've started all over again although it's more action songs like "Wheels on the Bus" or "Head, shoulders, knees and toes"!
3. National Chocolate Parfait Day is also honored on this day. Parfait means perfect in French. Tell us about a perfect day, in your mind, and would/could it end with a chocolate parfait?
Probably a walk by the sea or in the countryside with hubby, followed by time with all the family and of course it would finish with chocolate!
4. National School Principal's Day was founded to celebrate these school administrators who support and guide quality teachers and staff to provide productive learning environments for our children. Did you have a good Principal when you were in school? Do you remember his/her name?
I remember my high school principal as an elderly, rather old fashioned lady. Small but with a fierce demeaner. She was Miss Cruttenden. I was fortunate to work with a few very good principals too.
5. And perhaps the most important one is Silver Star Service Banner Day which honors the sacrifices of the combat wounded, ill, and dying service members from all branches of the military. Do you have family members who have served this country in uniform? Tell us about them, if you will.
My Dad served the UK. He entered the army at 16 to escape working in the coal mines. It enabled him to train as a mechanical engineer but I'm not sure if he realised that he would then be caught up in WW2. (He was 22 then) One of my regrets is that I didn't get to talk to him much about his experiences (he passed away when I was 22) although he didn't like to talk about it much - he was one of the many soldiers fortunate enough to be rescued from Dunkirk.
6. It's Hump Day! How is your week going so far?
Busy as usual. I have 3 days of Grandsitting this week but today is a free day so I'm relaxing and having a "me" day!
Thanks for the questions Terri and your visits here.
