Day 3120: What day is it?

Many people tell me they have trouble keeping track of what day it is, especially since March 2020.

I hope this helps:

Today is also the first anniversary of American Statesman and Civil Rights Activist John Lewis’s death. And it’s the birthday of Angela Merkle, Phoebe Snow, Peter Schickele, etc.

July 17, 2021 is also just another day when I share new images with you.

How are you going to celebrate July 17, 2021?

I’m going to share this song that always cheers me up, no matter what day it is.

Thanks to all who are sharing this day with me, including YOU.

  1. I have no idea what day it is. I have to ask Alexa!

    Wow! I can’t believe it’s already been a year since John Lewis died. A year ago today we were hoping there would be a vaccine for COVID. Now that it’s here, a majority of the people don’t want to get it…Other countries are having the same problem… Have a nice day, Ann

  3. So far I’ve celebrated July 17th by being busy with household chores, but I celebrated July 16th by taking the day off and returning (albeit briefly–I kept a mask on and didn’t linger) to my favorite coffee shop. It seems like there’s something to celebrate every day, and while John Lewis’s passing is a sad thing the fact that Peter Schickele is still with us is something to celebrate.

  4. this is the best day ever, just so you know. every day is.

  5. I find myself thankful for the calendar feature on my i gadgets, yes, Ann, and the ability to listen to the songs of my life, such as this one from Chicago Transit Authority (do you remember the days before they streamlined to merely Chicago?!).

  6. It is the day to say that is a Buddha and that those are beautiful fuchsia lilies, and Hibiscus syriacus “Rose of Sharon”, a violet or purple variety. Hibiscus syriacus comes in various forms and colors. I think I saw some white ones growing through by your window when a photo of Harley came up.

    • The rose of Sharon is part of the Malvaceae family. It is also known as the crocus or shrub Althea. The rose of Sharon traces its heritage to biblical times (from the Song of Solomon), and its name is derived from the Hebrew word for “crocus” that grows in the coastal plain of Sharon in Israel. The biblical “rose of Sharon” may be one of the following plants: the tulip, lily and narcissus, but not the hibiscus because the latter is native to south-central and southeast China. According to an annotation of Song of Solomon 2:1 by the translation committee of the New Revised Standard Version, “rose of Sharon” is a mistranslation of a more general Hebrew word for “crocus”.

  7. It is the day to say that Harley is a Buddha.
