Today's Question(s):
this ? idea came from a conversation I over heard at P/T

lol Ok I have to ask has any of our QOTD family started their holiday shopping ? No. Things I buy would spoil before then.


Extra Credit Question:


When was the last time you dusted your "Tchotchkes" ? Never. Just throw 'em out.


Bonus Question:

In honor of International Banana Day

Do you like your bananas

Mostly Green
Yellow with a touch of green
All yellow, no brown spots
Yellow with a few of the brown spots
Banana bread ripe


Just for Fun:

This is said with a sarcastic tone

Yup That sure was the "highlight" of my day ?
I must plead the insanity defense here.

Today in History:
1784 - America’s first daily paper, "The Pennsylvania Packet and Daily Advertiser", was published in Philadelphia.
1837 - Charles Tiffany founded his jewelry and china stores
1897 - 8-year-old Virginia O’Hanlon had written a letter to "The New York Sun": “I am eight years old. Some of my friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa says, ‘If you see it in "The Sun", it’s so.’ Please tell me the truth. Is there a Santa Claus?” Editor Frank Church wrote the response that was printed for the first time on this day: “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.
1970 - ABC-TV debuted "Monday Night Football", with Howard Cosell, ‘Dandy’ Don Meredith and Keith Jackson.


Word of the Day:

caravansary \kair-uh-VAN-suh-ree\
noun
1. an inn surrounding a court in eastern countries where caravans rest at night
2. hotel, inn

Today is:
International Banana Day
National Pecan Cookie Day
Croissants Day
Pause the World Day
Miniature Golf Day
National Women Road Warrior Day Give me a break. I see that every day I go out on the road.
National Dust the Tchotchkes Day

Not I and not anyone I know.
But no doubt Santa and his helpers have been busy since their post-holiday vacation ended.

Extra Credit Question:

I don't think that's something a lady should ask a gentlman.

Bonus Question:

I don't generally care for bananas, but I will eat them because they're good for you.

However, I do like banana bread. Go figure.

Today is:
National Pecan Cookie Day
Croissants Day okay
Pause the World Day
International Banana Day

Hoping your day was bananatastic.
