Palindrome Week!

This week is a Palindrome Week - that means that each date this week can be read the same way backwards and forwards. For instance, today is 6/16/16 - 61616.

6.12.16 (Sunday)
6.13.16 (Monday)
6.14.16 (Tuesday)
6.15.16 (Wednesday)
6.16.16 (Thursday)
6.17.16 (Friday)
6.18.16 (Saturday)
