           SHAKE A HAND!

     It's June 24th and for years this

was "National Handshake Day," not

to be confused with "World Handshake

Day" which is traditionally observed on

June 21st. As you might expect both events

were cancelled last year because of the

pandemic.  About the last thing anybody

wanted last year was to be holding somebody

eles's hand! Even now as the pandemic begins

to ease and many masks are coming off the

handshake hasn't been evetybody's first

choice. I've seen our grandson's T-Ball team

waving greetings to the opposing team at the

end of a game. Some men prefer the "fist " or

"elbow bump" as a hello to friends. You know

the handshake dates back to the middle ages

when one knight would approach another and

hold out an empty hand to show he held no 

weapon.  There was always someting great about

a good firm handshake with another person. Now

that so many people have had the vaccine against

covid I, for one, would like to see the handshake

return. It's just seems more civilized than an elbow

bump to me! Hope you're well and that all your

NEWS is good!
