How Are You Celebrating the Holiday Today? Chester County Sandpaper.




Do you believe it's the anniversary of the invention of sandpaper again? It was on this day in 1834 that it was invented.

Time flies doesn't it?

So how are you celebrating? I know what I'm doing. I'm making my badself a costume made completely of sandpaper (with the exception of toilet paper cores for the eyes) and I'm going to march around the Chester County.

If you see me - give me a friendly wave and I'll toss you some hard candy. You know - like it's a parade and shit.

You might come off as abrasive if you do that.

Chris - a stupid joke but that made me laugh out loud.

Which means that joke is not stupid or I am.

Dr Zibbs said...

Details please. What grit will you be wearing?

Some Guy said...

To celebrate, I'm making a batch of my patented Pecan Sandies (yum!). Then I am going to eat them whilst I sandpaper the really stubborn dingleberries from my buttcrack.

Too much?

What do I need to do to get some beads?

Dr Zibbs said...

Skylers Dad and Some Guy - you comments always crack me up.

One of these day we need to get some beers.

And don't even say that you're recovering alcoholics because it you are you need to get over it for at least a day.

Seriously are you? I can't recall either of you ever mentioning booze.

I love your site; I'm new here.

It's funny you mentioned sandpaper because I have some work to do in the house this summer that will begin with sanding. I'm dreading it in that obsessing kind of way.

I'm listening to that George Thorogood tune you posted the other day. Thanks for that one.

Dedene said...
