Almost Spotlight Photos and Member Voice for May 13

Oh No! Just realized this Friday will be a Friday the 13th!! Maybe I should have made the theme something to do with that! Oh well......... the theme for May 13 is in honor of Nurses. May 11th is Nurses Day. So show us your medical personal, nurses, doctors, helpers, hospitals, doctor offices of your town.

Now the calendar I have next to my computer has May 11th as Nurses Day. When I tried to find info on it, I found a National Nurses Week tribute, all with different dates. ?? It is celebrated from May 6 to the 12th.
National Nurses Day, also known as National RN Recognition Day, is always celebrated on May 6th and opens National Nurses Week.  National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, the birth date of Florence Nightingale.

The history of Nurses Day can be traced back to 1953 when Dorothy Sutherland of the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare sent a proposal to President Eisenhower to proclaim a "Nurse Day" in October of the following year.  The proclamation was never made, but the following year National Nurses Week was observed from October 11 – 16, marking the 100th anniversary of Florence Nightingale's mission to Crimea. Read on here.....

I have decided not to post spotlight photos this week, which would be from our shoot out May 6th, Cinco de Mayo and Mother's Day. How could I choose a wonderful photo of our Moms over another? Just couldn't do it.

 So......... HAPPY SHOOTING!!

 And if anyone would like to suggest a theme for our shoot outs..... please do not be shy!!


  1. I'm glad we have expanded it to include doctors...I've asked Barclay to do a guest shoot before he heads off to do his residency in Seattle Washington.

  2. finally really stumped by the FSO topic. I have no access to nurses / hospitals / or doctors.... maybe can tell a story but with no photos.

  3. Friday the 13th all right. When Blogspot crashed and tried to restore stuff -- most of the post I had asked Barclay to do was lost. He's a busy guy and I hate to make him recaption the pics. Blah.

  4. hi patty, how are you? so happy that the friday shoot out still exists.. i wanna join again.. no longer in china but i hope to feature mississauga this time.. miss you.. any news on reggie girl?

  5. Ginger, I think writing a FMTSO post would be just fine also.

    Mark, you are so right! Friday the 13th and blogger really tricked us all!
