Happy Monday

thank you

Today is Memorial Day, a day we remember and honor the servicemen and women that have gone but whose legacy is our American heritage. Many have a three day weekend, the first unofficial weekend of summer, while for many others it’s just Monday. We decided a long time ago that Happy Monday runs every Monday and you can look it up as needed. So whether you’re grilling brats or pulling a double shift, have a Happy Monday and God bless America.

It looks like we ran a bit long this week. There’s still plenty of stuff in the folder, I wouldn’t be surprised to find a special Tuesday edition tomorrow. Happy Monday and peace out -Van Til.

typewriter Last Supper What’s the difference between this and every other image of the Last Supper I’ve ever posted? This one was made on a typewriter.

Paul Smith has a disability that makes using a brush or a pen impossible. But since a young age he has worked magic with just the 10 symbol keys at the top of the typewriter keyboard. He considers his talent to be nothing less than a gift from God. Grab a tissue and watch his story.
