Happy Presidents Day today!

It looks like 2018 will have many Monday holidays similar to 2017.
Keeping the route small and sweet.
Fun fact: Did u know that many quality jelly beans are made with Real Fruit juices?
I might go back to jelly beans, but that's it because bubblegum is so easy!
Please be kind to the working man. He works hard for the money.
May Gd bless all Presidents; past, present, and future.

Happy Honest Abe Day!

OOOooo, honor boxes are not for me.
It was funny because in 99% of all locations,
everyone was very honest about dishonesty.
How can u get mad at that..?!?

If I didn't believe in a higher power, money worries
would do me in. Honestly!

Happy B-Day to our 16th President,
Abraham Lincoln today!

Top 10 Abraham Lincoln facts

1. He was the only president to have a patent: Lincoln invented a device to free steamboats that ran aground.
2. He practiced law without a degree. Lincoln had about 18 months of formal schooling.
3. He wanted women to have the vote in 1836. The future president was a suffragette before it became fashionable.
4. He was a big animal lover, but he wouldn’t hunt or fish. If he were alive today, Lincoln would be running an animal shelter.
5. He really was a wrestler. Lincoln was documented as taking part in wrestling bouts. We don’t think he wore a mask or had a manager.
6. He lost in his first bid for a presidential ticket. The unknown Lincoln was an unsuccessful vice presidential candidate in 1856 at the Republican convention.
7. He never belonged to an organized church. Lincoln read the Bible daily, but he never joined an organized church in his lifetime.
8. He didn’t drink, smoke, or chew. Lincoln was a simple man of tastes, and he never drank in the White House.
9. He didn’t have a middle name. Lincoln went through his life with two names.
10. He hated being called Abe. Apparently, he preferred being called by his last name.

Cashless Kids?

Latch-Key Kids. Remember that term?
It came into being when families needed to begin adding 2nd incomes.
(Not THAT long ago, by the way).
And Cash-less Kids?
What, kids will have to carry plastic on them?
Remember payphones?
They began to be used less with the advent of the Pager,
(remember pagers?)
And disappeared completely with the introduction of the
mobile phone.
Soda machines successfully made the transition from quarters
to credit cards.
Cash-less Kids? Hmmm...
Mobile mint machines?
We'll see what's next..!
