      September 1 is . . . . . Emma M. Nutt Day

      Emma M. Nutt Day celebrates the first woman telephone operator in America.

      Emma Nutt became the first woman telephone operator on September 1, 1878. She loved the job, and worked at it for 33 years.

      This special day celebrates the world of telephone operators. It was a very important job for many decades. Today, the position has been eliminated being replaced by automation in telephone systems.

      A little side note about Emma: According to Emma, she was “very thankful that my first name was not Imma”.

      Finally! It’s here, the best holiday of the entire year. September 19th is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. So its time to open the chest of your lexicon and pull out a few ‘Yaharrrs’ and some ‘me heartys’ to tack onto the end of a sentence every now and then. Colleen has already put the Jolly Roger on the flag pole. A few pirate jokes are always a plus. Youngest son Miles is going to a pirate festival under the St. Johns Bridge and his goal is to score a pirate hat.

      So in order to get you into the mood, I have a recipe for a pirate drink.

      1 Mango
      1 Pineapple
      1 bottle of rot gut rum (the kind that gives you a headache)
      1 small folding paper umbrella

      Cut up the mango and pineapple into 1 inch cubes. Feed the mango and pineapple to your parrot. Drink the rum. Stab the first disagreeable person you come across with the umbrella.

      I’m real good. My business is going super slow in this economy. The kids are growing like weeds. Both Miles and Ma’ire are almost taller than me. Colleen had a particularly nasty type of breast cancer which would have been fatal two years ago but now they have a new wonder drug made out of Chinese hamsters. She is done with chemo, radiation, surgery and they are going to take her port out in a week or two.

      So how have you been the last few years?



      I still don’t know where you get that ‘Doot dee doot dee dooooooooo doot’ nonsense. Everyone (and their little dog too) knows its ‘doodle-dee-doot doodle-dee-doot’.
