At what time of the day is it appropriate to start drinking rum?

Would that be dark rum, since it's after midnight, then you switch to light rum at dawn?

Sept. 21

International Peace Day
Miniature Gold Day
World Gratitude Day

I would be grateful if I could play some miniature golf (it's been a while since I've had that fun) and if everyone could get out their frustrations on the course, maybe it would be a more peaceful day.

Either choice can help us get through the night but after several hours, it is often 'lights out'!
But then, some of us have been known to add a wee bit to our morning coffee also...

"Miniature Gold Day" had me somewhat puzzled until I realized that you probably meant miniature golf.
These days miniature golf, although enjoyable, is not as popular as it once was.
I'd rather spend some time pursuing disc golf (aka frisbee golf) at one of the courses that seem to be popping up everywhere. Most courses are on public property and it is free to play once you've invested in a few discs to toss around.

Sorry for the typo. Yes, I did mean golf. I used to enjoy playing when we went to the beach, but we haven't been on vacation in a long time. I've never heard of disc golf. I probably wouldn't be very good at it since I'm not at all athletic.

Oh well, 'd' and 'f' are next to each other on the keyboard so it's an easy typo to make.

IMO, there is no need to be "athletic" to enjoy disc golf (no need to be very good at it, either- much like regular golf, I guess). Some of the terrains warrant good hiking shoes though.

You may not need to be very athletic, but I still think I wouldn't be that good at it - or I would bean someone in the head with a disc. But it does sound like fun.

You found a great picture!

Now, see if you can find a photo of an elephant eating an ice cream cone while riding on a bus.
