Hey....it's Vertical Day!

Years ago, our niece, Becky, dubbed 11:11, either a.m. or p.m., a "vertical minute." Get it? Everytime I would look at the clock and it was 11:11, I always thought of Becky. So then November 11 rolled around, and it became Vertical Day. In the midst of concentrating on other things today, I forgot what day it is! Until the phone rang a few minutes ago, that is....

Now the cool thing about Vertical Day is that Becky and I try to share a vertical minute. She lives in the Chicago area, two-hour time difference. So when it is 11:11 a.m. here, it is 1:11 p.m. there. We try to call on the exact minute and share our vertical minute on Vertical Day. I know, probably kinda dorky. But it's still fun. And no matter where I am, day or night, if I look at my watch and it is 11:11, I always think of Becky and say a little prayer of thanks that she is in my life.


  1. Happy Vertical Day! Just the little things that make you smile, so celebrate all things vertical! Just wait for 2011!!
