Oh, Shelley, that made me laugh, you always do!

I think I have one even better though. When I taught in the southern U.S. the kids would say "so and so is all 'hooked up' today." (As in hooker!) And these were little kids!!!

I am wondering what your favorite holiday is...and what makes it special. Maybe share your favorite holiday and something about it that makes it special to you.

My favorite holiday is Memorial Day! It falls at the end of May here and is in remembrance of those who gave their lives for this country's freedom. However, it is the unofficial start of summer! The beaches open, which here means they start charging fees to go on, the lifeguards and my beach friends return, and it is the beginning of everyone coming to the Jersey Shore (and if you watch the t.v. show it is really not like that...well, sort of :D ).

So it's about 5 more months to my favorite holiday!

I am wishing peace and strength to all my forum friends.

:emoticons-yes:  Once again my favorite holiday is approaching. :emoticons-clap:

This year is a very different one here at the Jersey Shore. The beaches have done their best to rebuild the boardwalk and buildings and where I live is up and running but many places along the ocean are still recovering from Hurricane Sandy. I have a feeling that my town will be packed with people coming down for the day as beaches north of us and south of us were hit harder and haven't recovered. We have most of our boardwalk back, the restaurants and bars are back, and the rides and amusements are open. There aren't many places to stay, motels are still being rebuilt and gutted, houses are being knocked down or raised up higher or stripped down inside to the studs. 

 

It seems that it has been grey and dreary for months and I have only had a couple of days to get my "beach fix" in. The forecast for this weekend is good but the sun is supposed to be shining today and it is not. But my beach bag is packed and I am ready to go, oxygen converter and all!! I am looking forward to seeing my friends and to the craziness that is summer at the shore. We are just going to have to drive up to the beach earlier so we can get a parking space!

 

I hope everyone is well and looking forward to their coming season depending on what part of the world they are in. :emoticon-hug:
