Today is Rain Day

OK Folks, it’s Friday and I’ve got absolutely nothing.. 

My camera is broken, my life is in turmoil, my wife left with the dog, i think she even took the pickup truck.. (sounds like a country song doesn’t it) HAHAHAHA!! Oh wait!! I don’t even have a wife.. O_o

Anyways, so here’s to RANDOM POST on FRIDAY…..

Here’s a weird little holiday, courtesy of Waynesburg, Pennsylvania. It all started back on July 28th, 1874, when a farmer told Byron Daly, the owner of a drug store, that tomorrow he should expect rain. The farmer made this guess because it always rained on his birthday, July 29th. When the farmer’s prediction proved true, Mr. Daly made an annual game of it, betting store patrons and townspeople that they could expect rain on July 29th. The typical wager for this bet: a hat. Every year it rained, and every year Mr. Daly won himself a new hat. Over the years Daly and his son amassed a huge collection of hats, which were donated to raise money for charity. So next time it rains on Rain Day, just think, somebody out there is winning a hat. And somebody’s bare head is getting soaking wet.
