What Do A 1st Date, Bowling, Zucchini, & Garage Sales Have In Common?

What Do A 1st Date, Bowling, Zucchini, & Garage Sales Have In Common?

 

Has she lost her mind?  That's what you are thinking, right?

Yes, I have. But that has nothing to do with the question.

 

Bowling, zucchini, and garage sales all share the date, August 8, 2015.

 

August 8, 2015 is National Bowling Day.

Check with your local bowling alley for specials and free bowling offers.

 

August 8, 2015 is also Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Night .

Tom Roy, talk and news radio personality, created this holiday as a way for gardeners to share their abundance of zucchini.

 

August 8, 2015 is also Garage Sale Day.

Celebrated the 2nd Saturday in August...it began in 2001 when C. Daniel Rhodes of Alabama thought it would be a good idea for his neighbors to have their garage sales all on the same day, rather than on different weekends.

My tips for having a successful Yard Sale

 

On a personal note.....

My husband, Rick, and I celebrate the 40th Anniversary of our first date on August 8, 2015. 

Imagine that.....40 years together!

 

We won't be bowling or sneaking around with zucchini, but I'm pretty sure there will be some yard sale treasure hunting on Saturday.

 

Whatever you have planned for this weekend, I hope you enjoy it!

Zucchini has definitely got a way of taking over a garden and creating the need for new zuchinni dishes, or sharing.

Good morning Sharon.  I kept going back and forth with the two pictures.  I did notice one thing you've changed your hair color and style... Otherwise I don't see anything different..

Great topic . . . . looks like it created a lot of interest . . . . and the Active Rain members had to stop by to see what the answer was.

Good luck and success.

Pat:  I agree with the zucchini....wish someone had left me some!  Thank you for the anniversary wishes, but it isn't wedding anniversary, just 1st date. We will be married 37 years in September.

Lou:  Thank you!  The anniversary is the date of our first date....married 37 years in September.

Chris Ann:  I could use a new zucchini recipe. I usually steam it for stir fry, or bake it, or saute it sliced with diced tomato.

Rebecca Gaujot, the GO TO REALTOR   Thank you!  We got married three years later in September.  This year will be 37 years!

Noah:  Thank you!  And we are still just as cute as ever!  LOL.  Another 40 is certainly possible, if we live to 97 and 100!  Wow!

James:  I appreciate that, thank you!  If you saw me, and past me in person I'm sure you would notice a few other differences!  LOL

Gita:  Thank you!  It's been a great weekend so far.  We are extending our weekend through Monday!

Lou:  We are a very curious bunch, for sure!

Sharon- well, I'm such a bad bowler that in college when my team was in a tournament, my teammate rented the alley next to ours so I could practice between my turns.

Sharon P:  Thank you!  Time has just flown by!

Kathy:  Oh no!  I don't think I was a bad bowler, not great, but ok. I do really well on Wii if that counts.

Sally & David:  We do appear to be headed straight into "ever after".  LOL

Sharon-Who would have thought all those different things including your 40 yr first date would all be on the same day. Congrats on 40 yrs together. You must have been a child on your first date and a very young bride.

That is the sweetest photo Sharon! Looks sensationally 70ish! You look just as young and great today as you did 40 years ago. My time flies! Look at you now!
