Don’t Get Stung!

We’re always looking for holidays to celebrate at the Barn. Sometimes we have to make our own. Thus, I proclaim today to be “Bee Day”.

As in “Aunt Bee”.

Today in 1902, actress Francis Bavier was born. Ms. Bavier was completely convincing as Sheriff Andy Taylor’s often befuddled Aunt Bee in Mayberry. Without her, Opie might have grown up to be a jailbird instead of Ron Howard!

Drink 4cast 4 2day

You’d think the drink for Bee Day would be a stinger, but no-o-o-o-o. Today, we’re celebrating with a;

Killer Bee Cocktail

½ oz. Jagermeister

½ oz. Barenjager

Pour both liqueurs into a shot glass and shoot.

That should get a buzz on, but remember to keep your bullet in your pocket.

Other things to celebrate today;

–          It’s author Shirley Jackson’s birthday. Ms. Jackson was born today in 1916. She wrote two very great scary pieces; the short story “The Lottery” and the novel THE HAUNTING OF HELL HOUSE. I highly recommend them both.

–          Today in 1503, Nostradamus was born…but you probably knew that in 1502, didn’t you?

–          Today in 1953, the Brooklyn Dodgers signed Sandy Koufax. It turned out to be a good move.

I predict it will “bee” a fine day.
