Congratulations, if this is your day to celebrate!  45 years ago tonight, Johnny Cash sets a record by taking home 5 trophy's at the 3rd annual Country Music Association awards at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium.  He wins, Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year for "San Quentin", Single of the Year for, "A Boy Named Sue"; and Vocal Group of the Year with June Carter.  What a night for "The Man In Black"!  It's National Grouch Day!

According to Sesame Street Magazine, this day was created for all Grouches to celebrate their way of life.

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary describes a grouch as person who complains frequently or constantly.  A habitually irritable or complaining person.

A grouch may appear to be happy only when others are unhappy and grouchy as well.  It's only then they feel comfortable having others share in their world.

This would be an excellent day to invite a friend, grouch or not, to come over, kick back, relax, share some popcorn and watch the movie, "Grumpy Old Men"!!
