Dandelions, Earthworms, and [Inhale] … Weed, Dude!
UN-birthdays at any age … are a compromise between your inner youth and exterior maturity. Meld them, mold them, and enjoy …
It’s National Humor Month! Though there is no associated link, who needs a link to laugh? Ok, I know the past year has been tough and laughing for many, a rare occurrence. But we were given the gift of laughter at creation, so if you need some help restoring your sense of humor, here are some fun and laughable quotes …
offered me grapes, but I declined. I’m not used to consuming wine in pill
~ “Of course I talk to myself. Sometimes I need expert advice.” [Unknown]
~ “I won’t quit but I will cuss the whole time.” [Unknown]
~ “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” Winston S Churchill There’s more … just click a link and laugh.
And lest we forget, it’s … National Cannabis Awareness Month. As we climb ever higher in 39AHC UN-birthdays, it’s as good a time as any to explore this subject for our myriad of aches and pains.
The associated site focuses on empathic practices and the link goes to a 2019 page of celebration and cannabis history. However, you might want to learn more awareness from their relatively current blog that offers general and marijuana related medical relief methods.
Of course, no April would be complete without a nod to 4/20 Day (April 20th). Amazingly, no link was connected. But of course, we have one for you. Myths and most likely way 4/20 became “Weed Day.” 4:20p.m. is a fine time of day between morn and night. ♪ … But I would not feel so all alone | Everybody must get stoned … ♪ *
Dandelion Day, April 30th. How about you? The link sends you to the wine loving Dandelion Festival in the Amish Country of Dover, Ohio. And who doesn’t love wine?!
But here at 39AHC, we also want to remind you that the “weed” known as the dandelion is still our favorite childhood way to make a wish. Do it now … and raise your wine glass high for your wish to reach the sky. Speaking of which …
For 39ers who
Follow the Stars
Aries (March 21st–April 19th) and Taurus (April 20th–April 20th) bring April’s Spring hopefulness together, as we look forward with hope, to ending the year without a pandemic.
Sharing the month, we celebrate Earth Day (April 22nd) in the sign of the earthy Taurus. The middle name for all Taurus bulls is “practical,” prominently moving through the end of the month with Aries’ lofty ideas grounded in reality. Taurus isn’t exactly “predictable,” but they are consistent and loving.
Shopping for birthday gifts? Red flows dominantly through the Aries psychet; and of course, Earth green with tinges of golden brown falls into Taurus’s healthy color spectrum. But it’s the clarity of the lustrous diamond that will capture the attention of both, as April’s glamorous gemstone.
Aging with ATT-i-tude Platitude
Dandelions and earthworms … for them, aging is a natural process. Shhh, don’t tell anyone … it is for us, too, except we have more fun. Make a wish and blow! ~ L. Rochelle
