Happy Presidents Day today!

It looks like 2018 will have many Monday holidays similar to 2017.
Keeping the route small and sweet.
Fun fact: Did u know that many quality jelly beans are made with Real Fruit juices?
I might go back to jelly beans, but that's it because bubblegum is so easy!
Please be kind to the working man. He works hard for the money.
May Gd bless all Presidents; past, present, and future.

Happy Honest Abe Day!

OOOooo, honor boxes are not for me.
It was funny because in 99% of all locations,
everyone was very honest about dishonesty.
How can u get mad at that..?!?

If I didn't believe in a higher power, money worries
would do me in. Honestly!

Happy B-Day to our 16th President,
Abraham Lincoln today!


Top 10 Abraham Lincoln facts

3. He wanted women to have the vote in 1836. The future president was a suffragette before it became fashionable.
