Celebrations today

-Come and Take It Day

(I had to check this one out!)

Today is Come and Take It Day. It suggests that this day is here for the taking. Grab it. Take it and run with it.

We're not sure what you have been looking for. But, today is the day to reach out for it...... to take it. Use your imagination. But if the taking involves another person in any way shape or form, get their okay before you take it.

Origin of Come and Take It Day: The town of Gonzales, Texas holds a Come & Take It Festival each year. It commemorates the firing of the first shot of the Texas revolution on Oct. 2, 1835, which took place near Gonzales.

Some people also believe that this day originated from a of a movie of the same name in 2001. We believe this is coincidental

Come and Take It Day is catchy name for a special day, and sure sounds like a fun day.

Something that made me smile...

I'm sure you've all notice how much people advertise about themselves on their vehicles. You can see if they've run a marathon (or many), where they like to vacation, who is in their family (and if the have pets), schools that people have attended. You get the picture. As I pulled into a parking spot I saw the typical stick figured family sticker listing on the back of a vehicle. For those who don't know what I'm talking about, here is an example.

One thing totally struck me as funny though. The dad's head was sort of torn off. I wasn't sure if this meant the kids got bored and started peeling dad off. The wife was mad at the husband and started to peel him off. Did they get a divorce?? It just got me to wondering, how do you update your status on your vehicles if your likes or family status change? Not sure of the truth, but it made me realize that Facebook offers an easier solution on updating people other than sticking things to your car or (gasp) even calling someone on the phone.
