Looking forward to the long weekend

You’ve got to love February, the Winter Olympics, MLK Day, Valentine’s Day and, now, Presidents’ Day weekend.

I plan to buy white sheets and look at new cars and have a good old American day remembering dead statesmen.

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for the day off on Monday. In fact I’m planning on extending it one additional day by celebrating Vice Presidents’ Day on Tuesday.

Tradition has it that on the morning of Vice Presidents’ Day the Vice President appears from an undisclosed secret location at noon.  If he DOESN”T see your shadow, hit the deck and don’t move a muscle!

If he sees your shadow, we have 6 more weeks of hunting season!

I plan to serve the traditional VPD dinner of Shameless Political Influence Peddler liberally sprayed with buckshot and spun until completely obfuscated.

Some of us don’t get to have the day off; we have to work at putting ourselves out of work.
