The YIR Staff is trying to get into the swing of the event.
Just be happy you don’t have to Hear the song…
Today is the National Day of the Cowboy.
Rhinos appreciate the music and the Buckeroo Attitude. And long-distance Spittin’.
Since We don’t ride horses, We have to pretend to be Bow-legged, iffn We wanna blend in.
Among the long list of National Holidays, Rhinos are intrigued by National Apple Turnover Day, which is today. We like to do our bit, although We are not clear about what gets accomplished.
Wild Strawberries grow all around the World. However, on July 3, 1806 Mr. Michael Keens, a British market gardener, introduced Strawberries he cultivated himself to the Horticultural Society of London. Today, almost all market Strawberries are related to his ‘Keens Seedling’ variety of the fruit.
Mr. Keens also discovered that Strawberries have male and female plants. Strawberries won’t grow if you don’t have both on hand. Who would have guessed?
So as We Rhinos gobble our Strawberry Shortcakes, We salute Mr. Keens’ endeavors; Credit where it is due.
Happy First Friday of Summer, from Your Inner Rhino.com!
