Can you believe it's August 1st?

My favorite Spiderman, Tobey Maguire

Summer is flying by! It seems here in Northern Illinois, we went from longing for winter to end, to praying for the high heat and violent thunderstorms to let up!

Well, whatever the weather, today is the first of August...and a quick peek at tells me it marks several "observances." Here we go:

--Today is Spider-Man Day, making the Duper heroes debut in 1962 in issue #15 of "Amazing Fantasy" comics. Nerdy teen Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider and soon developed the spider's powers as well as its web shooting talent and "spidey sense." Spidey got his own comic in March 1963.

--World Breastfeeding Week begins today.

---August is Family Fun Month and National Toddler Month.

My little toddler grandson, Josiah Daniel

--Today is Respect for Parents Day.

--August is Happiness Happens Month, sponsored by the Secret Society of Happy People in Lewisville, Texas!

--August is National Panini Month.--What's your favorite way to make paninis? Let me know in my comments section!

--And, of course, August is National Back-to-School Month! It still seems a little strange not to have to buy school supplies for anyone!!

--Today is Bookish Images Monday in my book blog, Cindy's Book Club! I'd love for you to go over there and participate--it's easy! Just click on the icon below...


Happy August, everyone!

Did you hear about the new "breastfeeding doll" that's ginning up a lot of controversy? I can't believe our culture sometimes. Wonder if Mattel will come out with the pelvic exam doll next.

I did hear about the breastfeeding doll! Yeah, it's a little too realistic for me. Pelvic exam doll...LOL!
