Welcome to your weekend. We’re glad you are here.
As we somehow find ourselves landing on the last day of September 2023 (what?!) it’s a reminder of how fast the weeks can slip by when we are busy with “life.” That’s why we like to take a little time on Saturday morning to slow down with a “scroll down memory lane.”
This is just a simple look back at events that happened on this day in history before you head out to make new history today. So, grab your favorite sippin’ drink and let’s scroll!
