“So get out and do something”
“I'm supposed to go hiking! If they'd ever freakin get here.”
“Beautiful Earth Day here!
I take a hike to work in an hour.”
“Maybe I'll get the kids and take the canoe to a local lake and paddle around picking up trash.”
“Folks around here are pretty good with their trash.
(there are plenty of cigarette butts at the trailhead, though....)”
“Hyway, I always suspected you were the kind of guy that picked up trash and then got paddled.”
“There was a PMS joke like that.....”
“As is the case with many PMS jokes, the guy who wrote it may no longer exist on this plane.”
“Yup, he may well have been fed through a planer.”
“earth day is a conspiracy created by the communist liberal tree-humpers, and should be discarded immediately for the sake of the children”
“Nimble, I suspect you are the guy that will be my competition for the paddling trash :).
Well, after me and my 11 yo daughter took my 7 yo son to TopSoccer (a soccer program for special needs kids) my 13 yo daughter and I went to a local retention pond turned wetland. This place was gorgeous. Plenty of different varieties of ducks, geese, swans, and other birds and turtles everywhere. I had planned to clean the trash off the islands too, but there were a lot of nesting geese so we just picked up the trash along the shore of the islands and as far as my crab net would reach onto the island. We saw a couple snakes, but the coolest thing was to watch the huge swam take off, cruise around the pond then land back in the water. Nice day to paddle, did something good and spent time with my 13 yo daughter and my 7 yo son. Great”
“I celebrated by mowing my lawn with my old two cycle lawn mower and later I'm burning Al Gore in effigy.
happy earth day...”
“This is the second year in a row that I've led the Earth Day parade down the main street of our town. Our town has been putting on this parade for five or six years and this was the most participants we have ever had, not to mention a lively crowd watching as we walked by.
The parade ends at a big park where there are many vendors, exhibits, games, and activities. We are constantly serenaded by local musicians and there are good thing to eat.
It's a local tradition that is worth keeping up.
Thanks to all the hikers out there who respect the environment and work to keep it healthy for the next generations to come.”
“I plowed my garden and located a new source of water with my water dowsing expertise. Next, I'll drink a beer and toast the Earth.”
“i led a parade down main street once. and by "led", i mean "fled from", and by "parade", i mean "20 police cars", and by "down main street", i mean "from angelina jolies house"

“and by "once" i mean "once a year"”
“and by "i" I mean my fantasy persona”
“I'm gonna drink some beer and rinse out the bottles before I recycle them.
Way to go, Dunadan!!”
“It's not nice to fool Mother Nature.”

“Mr. T took Mother Nature from behind. We refer to the event as the Big Bang.”
“I called my father to wish him a happy birthday yesterday.”
“LOL, I'll have to remember that one. Since my father's birthday is on Earth Day and he is 20 years older, my family always jokes and tells him he's older than dirt.”
“Holey crap, Zac!
I'm old enough to be your uncle!”
