Dull Event of the Month

 

bullet National Napping Month
PE00480_.WMF (15648 bytes) August -- the month when many people take vacations -- brings a special opportunity for Dull Men. They can indulge in one of their favorite pastimes -- napping. Proper vacation planning is the key. Pick a spot that provides good napping facilities. Avoid exciting, noisy locations.

 

And bring along a good book to read. We highly recommend "The Art of Napping" by William A. Anthony, Ph.D. russbuy.gif (3255 bytes)

The Late Queen Mother's Birthday

August 4.  We liked to watch the Queen Mother's movements, if any, on this day.  They feel some excitement (enough excitement for them) when we saw her doing what the Royals do best . . . wave.   We would rather watch the Queen Mother than any other Royal.  The other Royals are much too exciting . . . for example, Prince Charles falling off his horse.
