Things to know....

There are a few things to know about this day, both serious and just for fun.

Growing up in the area not far from Oak Ridge, Tennessee, we were very aware of the impact Oak Ridge had on World War II.  This is a copy of the local newspaper on this day 75 years ago.  I am trying to post this with the new Blogger Interface, and I’m unable to insert pictures and text as I have done in the past.  The type automatically switched to blue underlining when I attempted to write underneath the picture.  Apparently one of the things I need to know is how to maneuver this “new and improved” thing!

Anyway, another thing to know is just for fun!  Today is National Root Beer Float Day, and we are ready for that here!

Also, it is National Wiggle Your Toes Day!  Did you ever wiggle your toes in the cool grass during the summer?  Today, my toes would get wet since we’ve had a shower of rain!

Now, I’m going to see if I’m able to post another picture underneath this one.  I’ve no idea why I’m unable to continue the black print below the picture!  This will take some investigating, and that involves time! 

Thank you for checking in today!


  1. Oh, Nellie, I am having similar problems too. I may well revert to the old interface! Of course, difficulties aside, now I want a root beer float, and I don't even know if we have root beer in the UK!

  2. Well, Sister, I'm unable to help you with your blog posting, but I do remember when Oak Ridge was busy making those bombs. In fact, my teacher in second grade made me feel as though we'd be annihilated by one of those bombs if there should be some sort of malfunction so close to us. Well, that obviously didn't happen, and that gives us reason to celebrate with a root beer float! I think I'd like chocolate ice cream in mine, if you don't mind. Thank you for keeping us informed about these important occasions! Love you!

  3. I'm not having any problems with the new blogger and like it better. I never write anything under my pictures though!
