On Monday Willies

Greetings everyone! How was your weekend? Hopefully an ample combination of safe, sound, productive, and enjoyable.

I hope to return to normal posting this week. Although I wasn’t posting, I found all the comments visitors left regarding my mother-in-law to be special and uplifting. They were so special to me, simply writing “Thank you” isn’t enough.

The funeral was Saturday, and we are confident she would have enjoyed the service, the music, and the sermon. Fortunately, the weather was much better than Friday and Sunday morning.

The delayed act of Time: The Musical is on my docket for Wednesday 9:30 pm (Eastern US), so get your videos featuring videos with song titles that include “time” in the form as a compound word – such as, nighttime, wintertime, dinnertime, etc.

Celebrations for your week.

  • (Week) Human Rights Week, Lager Beer Week
  • (Mon) Weary Willie Day, Eqil Skallagrissom Day, Pastry Day, Apple Pie Day, Shareware Day, Day of the Horse
  • (Tues) Human Rights Day, Lager Day, Dewey Decimal System Day, Nobel Prize Day
  • (Wed) Mountain Day, UNICEF Day, Noodle Ring Day
  • (Thurs) Gingerbread House Day, 12-Hour Fresh Breath Day, Poinsettia Day, Ding-a-Ling Day Ambrosia Day

With Monday honoring Weary Willie, which has nothing to do with my post about baseball’s All-Time Willies, let’s start the week with music by One String Willie. Enjoy … and have a good week.

All Hands on Deck

Hands as defined by Merriam-Webster:

The terminal part of the vertebrate forelimb when modified (as in humans) as a grasping organ

Hands as stated in Wikipedia:

The two intricate, prehensile, multi-fingered body parts normally located at the end of each arm of a human or other primate. They are the chief organs for physically manipulating the environment, using anywhere from the roughest motor skills (wielding a club) to the finest (threading a needle).

Football season brings us the onside kick, so coaches respond with the “hands team.” “Lending a hand” to those in need is an important part of human culture.  Bosses very in their management style as some are hands-on while others prefer a hands-off approach.

Lovers hold them, the faithful placing them together in a sign of prayer, others communicate with them, surgeons seek a steady hand when dealing with a life, artists create items that stimulate the mind and the heart,  and ET warmed our hearts with a single touch.

I dedicate this post to hands: those 19 bones (in each hand) that can do so much. Click each name below to learn more about what hands can do.
