Buy A Fifth On The Third For The Fourth

 

 This morning I received a message via ActiveRain from Evan in North Carolina. 

 “Buy a Fifth On The Third For The Fourth.” 

My Dad used to tell me this as well! His birthday is on the 3rd.

What a fond memory of our loved ones!! 

Thanks for sharing! Evan "

 

I called Evan thinking he was a member but actually he 

 googled the phrase and came up with my previous blog.

No, I am not promoting drinking, but this reminds me of my mom, who always said this silly little saying on July 3rd.

"Don't forget to buy a 5th on the 3rd for the 4th."

There is only one day that the saying is appropriate. And that day is today.

 I hope everyone enjoys this holiday weekend with friends and family.

Morning Margaret.

Heard this one before, in fact I mentioned that to the owner of the adult beverage store I visit.  So far he hasn't used it, pity

James Dray Can you imagine if this was used by a liquor store? It would be a perfect holiday promo. Evan and I were talking about this same subject.

Good morning Margaret - that is catchy and I never heard it before.  I really would be a great liquor store promo!

What I love most about your post is the fact that Evan found your blog post and decided to reach out! I bet that made your day.

Hello Margaret---it's interesting what captures the attention of readers who "follow" us. There's no end it seems into the "why" or "what" will capture our attention. I like this "memory".

This post brought back a delightful ancient memory.  When I was a kid, my dad would find a pint of Apricot Brandy on the front porch with his name on it each birthday.  The gift giver remained anonymous for several years.  And, then one day, my mom caught it being left near the doorstep by a neighbor, whose wife was a member of the Women's Temperance Society.  Mom walked away from the curtain and allowed him to keep the secret tradition, leaving dad with his gift, and the neighbor still had peace in his home.

Myrl Jeffcoat What a delightful memory. Shows the thoughtfulness of the neighbor and the true wisdom of your mom. Your comment would make a sweet blog.
