Odd Day is...Saturday, 7/9/11. Three consecutive odd numbers make up the date only six times in a century. After 7/9/11, only two days remain in this parade of Odd Days which began with 1/3/5. The previous stretch of dates like this started with 1/3/1905---13 months after the Wright Brothers' flight.
We've established a contest and are offering the date in dollars ($791.1) to be shared by the winners. Prizes will be distributed to those who involve the most people in the Oddest Parade of Odd Characters, write the best Odd Ode, or create the best Odd Celebrations.
Our daughter Rachel, a June graduate from U.C. Davis, is sponsoring a Facebook event which can be found on Facebook under "events" , "Odd Day"---all are invited---bring your friends!!
Things to do on Odd Day: It's a great day to do your odds 'n ends, give a friend a high-five, root for the odds-on-favorite, read the Wizard of Odds, watch the Odd Couple, say aaaahd in the doctor's office, look for sea odders, find that missing odd sock, and beat the odds.
