Dress Up Your Pet Day

 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”

Today, January 14th, is a special day.  It is Dress Up Your Pet Day.  Today gives you the right to dress up your pet whether they are a dog, cat, pig, squirrel, lizard or a goldfish.  Okay maybe not a goldfish.  What would he wear?  A swimsuit?  chitter-chatter

And by all means, you need to post these pictures of your pets all dressed up.  This is one of my favorite pictures of the pig dressed up – Sir Bacon.

Yep, yoIMG_4578u read it correctly.  His little shirt says, “I didn’t do it.”  I think for the first 6 months of his life, he probably did think that was his name – HA!

And Houdini’s shirt – somehow it just doesn’t seem right but on the other hand it seems perfect doesn’t it?

.Enjoy your day my friends.  Dress those pets up and have fun!

I’ll be back soon!

Rocky’s Nut Brunch

Have you ever  had a Pringles?  You know the potato chip that is curved that fit so snugly in a tall skinny can?  They are highly addictive and you can’t just eat one.  Sometimes if you are lucky, all of the Pringles are whole and there are no crumbs in the bottom of the can, unlike when you get a bag of chips.

Fredric J Baur was a chemist and food storage tech that worked for Proctor & Gamble.  In 1966, Baur came up with the idea of a tubular container for these awesome chips called Pringles.  He filed for the patent and was granted the patent in 1970.  The rest you can say is history.

But here’s a tidbit of information that will blow your mind.  Baur retired from Proctor and Gamble in the early 1980’s.  He died May 4, 2008 of Alzheimer’s.  Baur had told his family that when he died, he wanted to be buried in a can of Pringles.  So on the way to the funeral home upon his death, his family stopped at a local Walgreens and bought an iconic can or Pringles.  Bauers remains upon his creation were then split between a Pringles can, in an urn placed with the Pringles can and another urn that was given to his grandson.
