International Day of Friendship

30 Jul

  Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!

Of all of the important holidays I can tell you about, today seems to be the most important in my book.  July 30th is International Day of Friendship.  The world is filled with too much hate, too many wars, too much prejudice and way too many disagreements.  Today, we should put all of that aside and reach out to each other and say, “Hello friend happy friendship day!”

This is just not a backyard problem or a school playground problem.  This is a worldwide problem.  A problem that needs to come to an end.  Everyone has differences – we wouldn’t be individuals if we didn’t.  But when you look down to it, we all want to be happy and what better way than to get along.

Today let’s make friends with different people, different cultures and different countries.  Extend your hand – or an olive branch – and say hello friend.  Say hello to your neighbor, to the stranger at the market and say hello to a person that you see everyday but you don’t even know their name.  Today is the day to make a friend near and far.

To all of our friends, we at the Hotel Thompson would like to say thank you for being our friend – happy friendship day.  And to those that don’t know us yet, Happy Friendship Day.  May we get to know you better today and in the future!

 Who will YOU say hello friend to today?

    Mark Sat, Aug 5th on your calendar as the return of The Dead Files. It was nice GA repeated that spooky episode from Northern Colorado. The son looked older than his dad – that’s what happens when you begin playing with things you shouldn’t be playing with.

    BTW, did you get rid of your Elf on the Shelf? You’d better or else you’ll be calling either GA or TDF for help, lol. 🙂

      YES!! Thank you for letting me know. We are so happy about that. We have missed DF. And no. Unfortunately that stupid evil Elf on the Shelf is still here somewhere lurking in the shadows. I think I will need massive help with his removal. Gulps. XOXO – Bacon
