What is Yad Drawkcab???  Well…  it’s BACKWARD DAY!!!  This is the time to do everything backward.  It’s so much easier for kids in school to do this.  Adults have been conditioned and need to literally make themselves do things backward.  Oh to be young again – and have the ability to be silly.

Write backward, talk backward. Wear your shirt with the back in the front. Eat a steak dinner for breakfast, and pancakes for dinner. Play a board game from the finish line to the start. Put a masking tape line on the floor and practice walking backwards.  Whatever you do, make it fun!

Just remember to post every selfie you take today – you can’t pick and choose which ones you put on facebook!

To see a person’s true face, look at the photos that do not get posted.  – Brandon Specktor

Use your imagination!  The sky is the limit.  What sort of backward things can you think of???

 Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels.  – Faith Whittlesey

This would be so much fun to celebrate with your kids or grandkids – and make sure you have the camera handy because you will definitely make some great memories for that scrapbook!

If you do decide to celebrate, make sure to share your photos with me on facebook!

Some parent is very talented with their video camera!  I really like the game of pool.  The spaghetti…  um – not so much.  I wonder how they did that.  

 To look backward for a while is to refresh the eye, to restore it, and to render it the more fit for its prime function of looking forward.  – Margaret Fairless Barber, The Roadmender

For one day, bond with your children in a most unusual way.  Live life to the fullest with your little ones while you have them.  You want to look backwards in time and remember more laughter than tears.

Again with the food…  LOL!!!  Oh well…

 In every real man a child is hidden that wants to play.   – Friedrich Nietzsche

Today I read about a mini-golf place that advertised they will celebrate Backward Day.  They will have everyone play the course backwards from hole 18 to hole 1.  Admission is also backwards – adults pay as children.  How fun would that be?

 Happy is he who still loves something he loved in the nursery:  He has not been broken in two by time; he is not two men, but one, and he has saved not only his soul but his life.   – G.K. Chesterton

That looks like fun.  The goal is to spend time with your kids and be happy!  May you and your family have a lovely Backward Day!  🙂







Today is GOLFER’S DAY!

When I die, bury me on the golf course so my husband will come visit!!!

My husband plays “real” golf, but one day I went out to hit a bucket of balls with him and he never invited me out with him again for golf. Huh – I think that waiter was ok after I sliced that shot. I mean, he didn’t suffer a concussion or anything. I hope my hubby wasn’t embarrassed by that little situation.

Golf is a game in which you yell “fore,” shoot six, and write down five.”
– Paul Harvey

Although I lack talent and anything else it may take to be a great golfer, I can clean your plow at mini-golf!  No matter what the intended trap may be, I manage to avoid it.  If there is a wheel turning and I have to get the little neon colored golf ball to the other side of it – hey – I’m your girl!

You can’t call it a sport. You don’t run, jump, you don’t shoot, you don’t pass. All you have to do is buy some clothes that don’t match.  – Steve Sax

Try opting for fun first and just reap the added benefit of exercise.  The attitude you have toward being active every day has more to do with overall wellness than the activity itself.  Find someone to beat at mini-golf, then go play mini-golf!

If I’m on the course and lightning starts, I get inside fast. If God wants to play through, let him.  – Bob Hope


Paying Last Respects

A golfer and his buddies where playing a big round of golf for $200. At the eighteenth green the golfer had a ten foot putt to win the round, and the $200. As he was lining up his putt, a funeral procession started to pass by. The golfer set down his putter, took his hat off, placed it over his chest, and began to wait for the funeral procession to pass. After it passed, he picked up his putter and returned to lining up his putt. One of his buddies said, “That was the most touching thing I have ever seen. I can’t believe you stopped playing, possibly losing your concentration, to pay your respects.” The man replied, “Well, we were married for 25 years!”

You know, I don’t mind not getting to keep score, but I sure do wish I’d quit picking out the one ball that knows how to do a disappearing act on the last hole before I get the chance to knock it in!  **Sigh**…

The average golfer doesn’t play golf. He attacks it.  – Jack Burke

  Whether you play or attack – have fun!   🙂
