On my workdesk this week I'm working on making journals.
It's a play day today. I'm taking my LTBFF out to lunch for her benchmark birthday and to see the new Meryl Streep comedy, "Hope Springs." Hmmm, well, okay, not. I just checked the movie listings and that movie doesn't open until August 10th. Bummer.
How the word "benchmark" came to be was that in 1904 there were these three lads playing tag in the park. Every time a game was over, the winner would go to the nearest bench and make a mark with his jack knife. The youngest, I forget his name, got so excited when he won, that he didn't even notice the old lady sitting there on the bench. She was appalled at their defacing the park benches, so she snapped him up, threw him over her knee, and gave him a good spanking. As she set him upright, she snapped, "There! That's a bench mark you'll not soon forget!"
Enjoy the day! As always, thank you for stopping by to visit. Special thanks to you if you take the time to join as a follower or leave a comment!
