Happy Flag Day & Strawberry Shortcake Day!

My goodness, so much happening today.  It’s a beautiful Saturday here on the outskirts of St. Louis where they are having the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure downtown this morning.  The weather could not be more perfect for such a wonderful event.

Today is also Flag Day.  Here is a link for a brief history of the day, especially to share with the kids so they know what it is all about.    The History of Flag Day

In addition, June 14 this year is Strawberry Shortcake Day!  Huzzah!  My father’s birthday was May 23 and Strawberry Shortcake was always his cake of choice for his birthday every year.  How appropriate it falls one day before Father’s Day this year.  Here’s to you Dad, via Google Heaven– Happy Strawberry Shortcake Day!

Wishing everyone a beautiful and wonderful weekend.  Fly the flag and have some Strawberry Shortcake.  And remember to add barbeque sauce to the grocery list for tomorrow’s Father’s Day Barbeques, too.
