Yep, this is a blog entry that won’t happen again for another 4 years.
Happy Leap Day and Leap Year to all the readers of “On The Road With Dave!”
And if you haven’t read the news section of your current Internet Browser Home Page and if you haven’t looked at all the trivia about why we have a Leap Year or why there are 29 days in February every 4 years, then may I suggest two websites to get you up to speed.
You can also go to Leap Day–LeapYear; billing itself as the Original Leap Day site.
And while you may have heard that tradition allows for a woman to ask a man to marry her on this day; which is true–and that today is also called “Sadie Hawkins Day”–I’ve found out that today is not necessarily “Sadie Hawkins Day” according to the originator of the event. If you’re old enough to remember the “Lil Abner” comic strip then you may already know this; if not, you need to read “Sadie Hawkins Day”.
And yeah, that’s the thing that caught my attention and inspired this entry.
