On Elephant-Relaxation Monday

Welcome back to the beginning of a new week. Did you have a productive weekend? Did you get a chance to do anything fun?

Our weekend was full – an evening of ballroom, 18 holes of golf in my league’s annual outing, a quick trip to the casino to spend free money and register for a drawing, a walk in a park, visiting a new Menard’s store (a Home Depot on steroids), and ending with a community orchestra concert. Whew!

Get your planner ready to record these celebratory events for the upcoming week. Weird Contest Week and Elvis Week can be saluted each and every day. Here are your daily events: (Mon) World Elephant Day, Sewing Machine Day, and Vinyl Record Day: (Tues) International Lefthanders’ Day (come on lefties, identify yourself); (Wed) V-J Day and National Navajo Code-Talkers Day (a fascinating story), and (Thurs) Best Friends Day and National Relaxation Day.

This leads us to this week’s edition of Monday Morning Entertainment. The observant readers in the crowd noticed the title of this post tapped into two celebrations. With that thought, enjoy these elephants relaxing to Beethoven’s Pathétique Sonata. Have a great week!
