May! ~ Tucker's Game Day Smilebox ~ Zip Code Question ~ My Carwash ~ May Day

Good 38º  high foggy morning.

Yesterday was Tucker's little league game. I took a picture of Sami and then she wanted to use my camera. She took a gazillion photos, but I only put 13 of them on the Smilebox. Tucker's team, the Orioles, won. Great game!!!

Here's a question for you... my home address was Los Angeles 32, California. That was a postal code an basically only used for large cities. When was the zip code first in place? **
My email pal Gator down in Florida sent me this picture and asked if this was my car. LOL
Of course it is!!!!

May Day

May Day, the first of May is celebrated around the world. It has a number of meanings. In many other countries it is a celebration of spring and the coming of summer. It is celebrated with many spring flowers, many of them blooming right in your own backyard. To communist and socialist countries, it is a celebration for the workers.

In many countries it is celebrated as part of a one to three day holiday. Of particular note, it is not a national holiday in the United States, except in Hawaii where it is known as "Lei Day".
