Cousin’s Day
A day for celebrating our cousins! I know I’m showing my age now but what better way to celebrate the day than a little clip of TVs ultimate cousins!

Meet Cathy, who’s lived most everywhere,
From Zanzibar to Barclay Square.
But Patty’s only seen the sights
A girl can see from Brooklyn Heights —
What a crazy pair!

But they’re cousins,
Identical cousins all the way.
One pair of matching bookends,
Different as night and day.

Where Cathy adores a minuet,
The Ballet Russes, and crepe suzette,
Our Patty loves to rock and roll,
A hot dog makes her lose control —
What a wild duet!

Still, they’re cousins,
Identical cousins and you’ll find,
They laugh alike, they walk alike,
At times they even talk alike —
You can lose your mind,
When cousins are two of a kind.

Pied Piper Day
Recall today the legend of the Pied Piper, the German piper who saved the town from its rat problem by piping them out of town — and into the Weser River.

Legend has it that the piper then turned his talents on the town’s children, who followed him out of town, never to be seen again.
