My Dad worked for National Audubon [and later whatever they called themselves] for 31 years. He was the world’s foremost authority on the Reddish Egret, and this is why as an infant and youngun we tripped between Texas and Florida Bay where he could study them during two separate breeding seasons, and why my childhood occurred in the Florida Keys. He shared a birthday with JJA, though a bit later year. He was posthumously awarded the Guy Bradley Award for his lifetime dedication. Dad died on Veteran’s Day 2005, but he got to meet my girlfriend, now wife. I sure wish he could see his 4 grandchildren, and they him. He’d love that I have 4 after my earnest assertions I’d have none!

Me, Dad, and a “shredded egret” as he liked to call them:

Towel day today.*

Don't forget to bring a towel.*

I was tempted to use Towel Day, but as this daily notice practice has evolved, I only use a "Day" for which I can find relevant emojis, and I couldn't find anything good for towel.

I do try to be cluefully obscure sometimes with emojis. I wonder if anyone understood the attempted emojis for the main characters in today's "Midnight Cowboy" notice: Joe Buck and Ratso Rizzo.

I'm afraid they were lost on me but so was the whole reference to Midnight Cowboy, which I know nothing about.

That being said I do enjoy your emojis. They can be a fun little head scratcher.
