    March 14th is Potato Chip Day

    I LOVE potato chips! Potato Chip Day is approaching and I'm NOT going out to buy any! I have RESOLVE today, I hope I can keep it up until tomorrow has passed.

    These corporations create way too many nonsensical days. What is next? Pet your squirrel day?

    January 21st is Squirrel Appreciation Day.

    Squirrel Appreciation Day at Holiday Insights

    When : Always January 21st
    Squirrel Appreciation Day is an opportunity to enjoy and appreciate your tree climbing, nut gathering neighborhood squirrels. It's held in mid-winter when food sources are scarce for squirrels and other wildlife. Sure, squirrels spent all fall gathering and "squirreling " away food. But, their supplies may not be enough. And, the variety of food is limited. So, give them an extra special treat today to supplement their winter diets.

    Back to topic: I Won't, won't, won't be buying Potato Chips tomorrow but I do feel my resolve weakening! Help, someone!

    It seems we're going downtown tomorrow according to my husband. Now...I either stay home... or go with him with him which brings me that much closer to the aisle where the potato chips are. I just have this feeling.....

    You could try avoid joining him for some grocery shopping. Go to the pet store. Though I fear you'll end up with a squirrel.

    Actually the pet store in the mall is gone now. We do have trees here and I can catch my own squirrel any old time.

    Re: March 14th is Potato Chip Day

    I am not sure how good cats or dogs are at catching squirrels, but I am sure you can get one of those at a nearby animal shelter?

    The hard part would be training either animal to be a vegetarian, to ascertain that the squirrel won't be eaten or killed ... how persuasive can you be Luba?

    I don't think we have to worry here, Vautrin, B.C. has the smartest squirrels and chipmunks; just ask the neighbourhood cats how difficult they are to catch.

    Any other shops on offer that might prevent you from seeing the dreaded potato chip aisle?

    The two main stores at the Mall both carry potato chips and I can just see me heading right there tomorrow...especially since I have an excuse to celebrate Potato Chip Day.

    Maybe I could ask my husband to tie me to a leash.

    Talking in this topic, I would pay to have even one potato chip right now. Gosh, but I'm weak.

    Too bad I am not living close-by. I'd think I'd be able to make enough to retire comfortably

    Re: March 14th is Potato Chip Day

    Sure it's only half the day, but I made it, made it, made it without chips since today is the day to give in to them with the Today's Blessing!

    This just may help me to cut down on them and maybe this resolve may help me walk past the aisle more often. I'm going to imagine rainbows as one website mentioned, and maybe imagine other lovely things, too. I love imagery and am surprised I never tried it before in this way.

    Barbecue potato chips are my favourites right now.
