NATIONAL WIGGLE YOUR TOES DAY
Each year on August 6, people around the country celebrate National Wiggle Your Toes Day by going barefoot, wearing sandals or flip flops, as it is all about showing off your toes and giving them some exercise!
* In 2011, while on vacation in Hawaii, the President was actually seen sporting his flip flops in public. *
Today, let your toes feel the grass, the sand on the beach, the water in the pool or the pebbles along the shore.
NATIONAL WIGGLE YOUR TOES DAY HISTORY
Within our research, we were unable to find the creator and origin of National Wiggle Your Toes Day, an unofficial” national holiday.
Each year on August 6, people around the country order (or make) a root beer float, drink up, enjoy and celebrate National Root Beer Float Day. Root beer floats are NOT just for kids !
Also known as the “Black Cow” a root beer float is made up of root beer and vanilla ice cream.
Frank J. Wisner of Cripple Creek, Colorado, gets the credit for inventing the “Black Cow” way back in August of 1893.
One night, as Wisner, owner of the Cripple Creek Cow Mountain Gold Mining Company, was staring out the window and thinking about the line of soda waters that was producing for the citizens of Cripple Creek, he came upon an idea. The full moon that night that was shining on the snow capped Cow Mountain reminded him of a scoop of vanilla ice cream. He hurried back to his bar and added a scoop to the children’s favorite flavor of soda, Myers Avenue Red root beer, tried it, liked it and served it the very next day. It was an immediate hit.
Wisner named the new creation, “Black Cow Mountain” but the local children shortened the name to “Black Cow“.
Since their creation, thousands of root beer floats are enjoyed around the country each day.

My truth……..I work out/exercise/run to burn calories or make up for food I eat, NOT to feel good, because I want to, or that its good for ME. This is something I have had a hard time admitting. I have realized I do NOT enjoy certain things, and enjoy others. I am trying to focus on being happy, healthy and having fun and NOT beating my body up. Seriously, its getting SOOOOO much better and easier!! I NEVER thought I would say that.
Some days I exercise, some days do not. However my exercise is no longer obsessive or “punishing”. I am not pushing my body or beating it up.
