Today we celebrate:

National Pecan Pie Day – Pecan Pie is a little too sweet for my taste, but it sure does look pretty so maybe I'll make it just so my family can look at it. I suspect that would only last until I turned my back for a moment.

Chick-Fil-A's Cow Appreciation Day – On this day, all over the country, Chick-fil-A restaurants are honoring the cow by giving a free meal to any customer who shows up to their restaurants in a cow costume. What you are not allowed to do, is ask me why a chicken restaurant is celebrating cows.

Collector Car Appreciation Day – This is the third annual celebration of this day which seems to be scheduled for the second Friday in July. This day was begun by a U.S. Senate resolution sponsored by Senators Jon Tester and Richard Burr. The purpose of the day is to raise awareness of the importance of automotive restoration and collection, at least to automotive restorers and collectors and possibly to many more people in this country whom I do not know.

Simplicity Day – This day honors Henry David Thoreau who was born on this day in 1817. He was a simple man who stressed the importance of a frugal lifestyle and ecological awareness. So today, tune into nature and keep your life simple.

Different Colored Eyes Day – This is a genetic trait called heterochromia, that is usually found in animals such as cats, dogs and horses. It is far more uncommon in humans so you'll have to look carefully at the eyes of everyone you meet today in order to have a chance to find someone with this trait. Although you can consider your goal accomplished if you find an animal with different colored eyes instead.

To celebrate today, keep your life simple by communing with nature and dressing up as a cow with different colored eyes so that you can head to Chick-Fil-A for a free lunch. There's nothing more simple than free stuff. This afternoon, find a car show full of collector quality cars and go admire them. Car collectors love to have people admire their cars. Finally, finish up your day with a nice, big slice of pecan pie.
