Today is National Smith Day

I just found out that January the 6th is National Smith Day to honour and salute Captain John Smith as the first Smith to arrive in America. But now it includes all people with the last name Smith and others who work in professions such as wordsmith, metalsmith, goldsmith and so on!

Valerie, I did not know there was a Smith day, Smith was Wissie's
maiden name. She always said that her father's family came over on the mayflower. Of course we don't really know that. You teach me new thing all the time.

Wow I didn't know that about Wissie. I thought Chapelle was her maiden name. Thanks!
