Lesson of the day: don't leave a pair of Crocs out where Weezie might think they are toys. She tripped over one, and then picked it up and carried it out of the room with her. I quickly got it from her, and put it in the closet! And yeah, I know, she might have been making a fashion statement, but still...

Today's lesson: you can't put a diaper on a dog who doesn't want to wear one. Sigh.

Well that's just plain wrong.  I think I've mentioned before that absolutely the only place I will ever eat a hotdog is in a ballpark.  How can they have National Hotdog Day during All Star break?   As far as I'm concerned Hotdog Day is next Wednesday.

If you rub a dog's eyes (clean them) during a rainstorm that wigs them out, it calms them down.  That's probably common knowledge, but I thought it was a nice thing to mention.

Draw A Bird Day 

In 1943, Dorie Cooper was a 7 year old living in England. Her mother took her to a hospital in to visit her uncle who was wounded in the war. While they were there, Dorie's uncle was very distraught, having lost his right leg to a land mine. In an attempt to cheer him up, she asked him "Draw a bird for me, please" Even though he was unwell, he decided to do as Dorie asked. He looked out his window and drew a picture of a robin.
  After seeing her uncle's bird picture, Dorie laughed out loud and proclaimed that he was not a very good artist, but that she would hang the picture in her room nonetheless. Her uncle's spirits were lifted by his niece's complete honesty and acceptance. Several other wounded soldiers also had their day brightened by the event and every time Dorie came to visit thereafter, they held drawing contests to see who could produce the best bird pictures. Within several months, the entire ward's walls were decorated by bird drawings.
  3 years later, Dorie was killed after being struck by a car. At her funeral, her coffin was filled with bird images that had been made by soldiers, nurses and doctors from the ward where her uncle had been. Ever since then, those men and women remembered the little girl that brought hope to the ward by drawing birds on her birthday, April 8th.
  Draw a Bird Day was never declared an official holiday, but it grew through those soldiers and medical personnel and their families. Today, it is celebrated world wide as a way to express joy in the very simplest of things in life and as a way to help soldiers everywhere forget war and suffering even if only for a short time.
