Daily Holidays - June 29

National Almond Buttercrunch Day Delicious, delicious almond buttercrunch, is there anything that’s better than this crunchy buttery caramelized candy? Almond Buttercrunch Day is a great day to indulge in this rich flavorful treat, and maybe even to learn a little bit about its history. This delicious treat is the foundation of some of the most mouthwatering confections out there, and is generally agreed to be best accompanied by any sort of chocolate you care to name! https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/almond-buttercrunch-day/

Waffle Iron Day Waffle Irons were first found in that area of Northwestern Europe known as the Low Countries, which includes Belgium and the Netherlands as well as other places. Originally they were made to be used over an open flame, and were thus constructed on the end of two long, typically wooden, handles with a clamshell system at one end, which would be held over a fire to bake. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/waffle-iron-day/

Camera Day There is no better day than Camera Day to snap some photos during your lunch hour, on your commute to work, or whenever a moment of inspiration strikes. Cameras and photography have developed substantially over the years, from its early roots with the French inventor Joseph Niépce right up to modern day digital photography. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/camera-day/

10. Thanks! That's my puppy!

Hard to believe he just turned 10! I have adopted older dogs, but Jackie found me at 5 months. This is my favorite pic of him:

11. Yes, he is a Brussels Griffon.

Good catch, since I'd never even seen one before until I adopted one, LOL. I've now had two, both rescue, and I've become a real fan. The question I get most often is "What kind of dog is that??" I usually ask if they've seen the movie "As Good As It Gets..."

14. Thanks! And he really does!

The first time I met him, I couldn't even catch him, LOL. But you can see how it was awfully easy to get attached. He's my best buddy and I don't know what I'd do without him...

9. It's been awhile since I saw my friend Jack

Looks like he put on a couple of pounds. Still a handsome boy.

12. Or my beautiful Felix!

He really has grown into a beautiful cat, IMHO. And you wouldn't believe the changes! He really has come come around! Yes, he still bites on occasion, LOL, and he's not quite a lap cat - yet. But he loves affection now, insists on being petted, and he's even curled up next to me when I've fallen asleep on the couch! It just took time...

16. And so am I, as you well know. You'll remember how that began - even before DU!

She really is a striking cat, so glad she's healthy and so photogenic! I remember the first pic of her, don't think I ever saw a cuter kitten!

4. Agreed

Being one that likes to get out and take photos as a bit of a hobby, I most certainly agree with you!
