Here is my thought for today:

Ever feel like inventing something – but not wanting to be famous or anything like that – the invention would have to be something completely useless or nonfunctional.  Here’s a thought – Perhaps we could invent a nonfunctional calendar. I know exactly what is going through your mind – what do I mean by nonfunctional?  Well, each month would have 40 days instead of the usual 30 or 31; with that thought in mind each week would have 10 days. Oh, and let’s not list any of the days of the week, you know like Monday, Tuesday and so forth and so on. And for pictures – instead of great landscape scenes or for us guys – pictures of babes in bathing suits – we could use photos of random objects – you know like a rusty old wheelbarrow or a pile of broken concrete blocks. Something like this:



1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30
31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40

By now you must be thinking – is he well? To respond to that allow me to leave you with a quote by the late and great Robin Williams, who said:

“You’re only given a little spark of madness; you mustn’t lose it.”

I try real hard not to lose my little spark of madness.

On a different note, due to the holidays and all we have on our plates for the balance of 2017, this will be my last post for the year. Here is wishing all my fellow bloggers –

A Very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Safe, and Healthy New Year!

Be back in 2018.



  1. Okay with 10 days in a week..when are the weekends and do we a few days off in the middle? 😉 agree hang on to that spark of madness

    Merry Christmas and happy new year have a fab time. Cu in 2018. Regards Bella

    1. Hi Bella: First off, allow my wife and I to wish you and yours a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year as well. And as for the calendar – well – as the title of the post says it is “NONFUNCTIONAL,” so basically, I would say you can set your weekends for whenever you want them and you also get to set what you would call the middle of the week so that you can take some time off. Enjoy! 🙂

  2. I think the calendar could use some improvement, Irv. For example, when it is leap year, the extra day should be in June or July not February. Who wants an extra winter day especially when it is late in the season? Having a 10 day week would be great as long as for working folks it includes a 4-day weekend ever week! Merry Christmas to you and yours. 🎄❤️

    1. Glad to have been able to make you laugh. Been caretaking my wife who has that nasty flu and as such I have not been able to get to my computer for quite a few days. But she is on the mend and hopefully I can get back to my writing soon. Again, glad I was able to get you laughing. – Irwin
