Happy St Patrick’s Day
You don’t *have* to be Irish to enjoy this day – happy St Patrick’s Day!
Make sure you are wearing something green or you may get pinched… then again you might like getting pinched – snort LOL. I think daddy has his lucky green Irish shirt out to wear today and mom is wearing her green Irish socks. I think they are safe. I think they need to put my green vest on so I can be festive as well. Perhaps mom will get camera happy and take a picture for later on for every one.
I’ve got some St Patrick day facts for you – how many did you know?
St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, although he was born in Britain, around 385AD. His parents Calpurnius and Conchessa were Roman citizens living in either Scotland or Wales, according to different versions of his story.
Wearing green, eating green food and even drinking green beer, is said to commemorate St Patrick’s use of the shamrock. Did you know that mom and dad have been to restaurants on this date where the sweet tea is green! Shocking huh? But the bigger shocker is that the actual color of St Patrick’s Day is blue. Green became associated with St Patrick’s Day during the 19th century. Green, in Irish legends, was worn by fairies and immortals and also by people to encourage their crops to grow.
Popular Irish toasts on St Patrick’s Day include, “May the roof above us never fall and may we friends beneath it never fall out.”
St Patrick’s Day was first celebrated in America in Boston, Massachusetts in 1737.
In Chicago on St Patrick’s Day, the rivers are dyed green.
In Seattle on St Patrick’s Day, there is a ceremony where a green stripe is painted down the roads.
Savannah, Georgia is the second biggest parade party for St Patricks day. Savannah holds a special place in my heart as well as my parents. Did you know that mom and dad adopted me from a little town about 80 miles from Savannah called Bruxton. Small world huh?
Lucky Charms, a favorite cereal for young and old, was created in 1963 with it’s popular mascot, Lucky the Leprechaun. Do you remember the tune?
Hearts, Stars and Horseshoes – Clover and Blue Moons – Pots of gold and rainbows – And the red balloon. That’s the luck of me lucky charms! Their magically delicious!
Dear Bacon – I am the All Mighty Magical Hare. That’s right – I’m a magician. I got tired of the human pulling me out of his hat. It was dark in there. Now I do the tricks. What? You never saw a magical hare before? There’s lot of us out there that are famous. You’ll see. Signed All Mighty Magical Hare
Dear All Mighty Magical Hare – I say go for it my fuzzy little friend! Why play second fiddle when you can be the main star. And with that charming red coat – who could see nothing but a STAR? There are lots of rabbits out there that are famous – the Trix Rabbit, the Energizer bunny, Rabbit from Winnie the Pooh, Roger Rabbit, Bugs Bunny and now YOU – the All Mighty Magical Hare. I can see your name in spot lights. I can see you in sold out theaters. I can see David Copperfield shaking in his expensive shoes. That makes me wonder. Who are you going to pull out of your hat my friend? Snorts and oinks.
Dear Bacon – You see nothing here. Nothing at all. There is no dog under this pillow. Nope. Nada. Walk on my friend. Nothing to see here at ALL. Signed Walk the Line
Dear Walk the Line – You got be faster than that my furry friend. The evidence is now in the picture. I suggest you shred these pictures and delete them from your computers. If you can’t see it, it didn’t happen. Remember those words and tread lightly.
Dear Bacon – Who says that the little miniature humans are the only ones to have fun on toys? Is that a rule set in concrete? I think not. I made it not. When everyone went to bed, I jumped and rode a horse. It was fast. It was fun. It was the time of my life until…. I forgot about the motion sensor camera the humans put in the front room. Can you say busted little guy? Signed Caught in Giddy Up
Dear Caught in Giddy Up – Hey, don’t sweat it my friends. You can only imagine what that camera catches the humans doing. I’m just sayin’ do a little research for some blackmail in case they decide to put your picture on their Christmas cards this year. Snorts – Giddy Up!
Dear Bacon – The possibilities are endless. My brother has the cone of shame. Sure I feel for him. Who wouldn’t, right? But for all of the crap he has given me, does this look give you any enlightenment to the
torture fun I’m going to have with him? Evil barks! Signed Some Doggie?
Dear Some Doggie – Oh no! I’ve heard about you recently my friend. You are the one that does all of these bad things to doggies and then dogs get blamed for it. Some Doggie – you are famous. I gotta admit that your bro looks a little pitiful. Maybe go a little easy on him… just a little okay.
Dear Bacon – My humans forgot to feed me tonight. Something about they were tired and sick. They went to bed early without a second thought to little me and my needs like FOOD. That’s okay though. I’ve been sitting up here watching them sleep for a couple of hours. I don’t plan on moving until they wake up and see me here. That should give them plenty of nightmares for the rest of their lives and they should never forget about me again. What do you think? Signed Pissed
Dear Pissed – Oh.my.pigs. Remind me to *never* piss you off my friend…. or to piss off the purr things here. They may get instruction from you. If I woke up to you staring at me from above…. I think I would wet myself right there and then in my piggy bed. Squeals!
REMEMBER FRIENDS – We can’t have Dear Bacon issues without YOU. Keep your pictures and questions coming to me via email 🙂
