Coincidence, I think not . . .

As many of you know, the little Stockdales and I have a favorite television show.  Without a doubt, the best show on Earth (I live in a foreign country, so I have the authority to make that judgement) is ‘Phineas and Ferb’ on The Disney Channel.  If you’ve never seen an episode, stop watching complete trash like ‘Breaking Bad’ and start watching some quality programming.  S.I.M.P!

Now, I’ve always wondered how they determined there are  ‘104 Days of Summer Vacation’?  Really, what kid gets 104 days of Summer vacation.  They get out in mid/late May (14 days), then all of June (30 days), then all of July (31 days), then a couple weeks in August (17 days).   

14+30+31+17 = 92 days of Summer vacation

Sure, there is some play in that number.  Maybe the kids go a little earlier or later in May, maybe they go the last week of August, but 104 is a long Summer vacation.  

Unless, you are the Stockdales!  We got to Singapore on May 3, that leaves 28 days.  When you add the 30 days in June and the 31 days in July and the 15 days in August (the little Stockdales start on August 16), it adds up to 104 of Summer Vacation!

With a putter, I’m a hole in one machine!

  1. My question is how many days do they go to school?

  2. I don’t want to know anything about how the squirrel got in your pants. But I do have a question, though. Is it a Singapore Plantain Squirrel (callosciurus notatus) or an American Grey Squirrel (sciurus carolinensis)?
