Chryssy recommends a music artist that might surprise you. It surprised her. She also reminds us that the Billboard Music Awards are on tonight and that might be fun.
We move on to a discussion of the many and varied memes that are circling the interwebs these days. Some of them are very funny. If you can put your political leanings aside for the sake of enjoying art, even more of them are funny. Head over to the How To Do Life Facebook page for some examples of memes we’re really liking right now.
Today’s grab bag is all about old things that are actually young, like Jonathan the tortoise and the United States of America.
If you need a smile, here a link to Jonathan’s story. It’s worth a click. He’s very cute. https://www.thedodo.com/in-the-wild/tortoise-jonathan-oldest-animal-in-the-world
We also got a little history lesson today, learning about the United States’ 10th President, who left office in 1845, and his STILL LIVING RIGHT NOW grandson. Here’s the link to that story. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/grandson-10th-president-john-tyler-dies-180975992/?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=socialmedia&fbclid=IwAR0LsCQ34o2q6zVrDwRFQ3B4XhPT4g1KrwmGyzRwt-6VEuINbKoWv8KyKaw Thank you to Chryssy’s friend Neil for sharing this article and for Chryssy’s Sissy Lisa for adding the perspective that maybe this country will be OK – after all we are just petulant kids.
Today unveiled the first ever Chryssy’s Book Club book. She chose The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown. This book is a quick read and should lead to some interesting discussion. We will talk about it in about 5 weeks, so you’ve got time to order it and get it read. Thank you to another dear friend, Beth, for this suggestion. https://www.amazon.com/Gifts-Imperfection-Think-Supposed-Embrace/dp/159285849X/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=the+gifts+of+imperfection&qid=1602555789&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEzQUQzQzk0M0pJVFVZJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwOTgwNjg1M05XQVdFVVlTUlVXMCZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwODYyNDg5N09HQjcwTUVBTlFRJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==

Until next time!
