Oh Dear – I Need Help My Friends


This isn’t good.  This is not good at all.  I need help my friends- LOTS of help.  I need to make mommy better.  She is having what she calls a ‘magenta’ kind of day.  You don’t know what that is, do you?  Mom is a huge fan of the Golden Girls and that’s where it comes from.  This is what it means:

“Magenta…that’s what I call it when I get that way. All kinds of feelings tumbling all over themselves. Well you know, you’re not quite blue, because you’re not really sad. And although you’re a little bit jealous you wouldn’t say you’re green with envy. And every now and then you realize you’re kind of scared but you’d hardly call yourself yellow…I hate that feeling. Just hate it. And I hate the color magenta. That’s why I named it that. Magenta. No way to really explain it but, fortunately between friends you don’t have to.” ~Blanche Devereaux

You get it now?  Plus she had to go to the worky place today.  Magenta, Monday and work equals not a good combination.  Not one particular thing can be the reason for Magenta.  It’s lots of little things snowballed into one giant I need to shout it out like the kid from Home Alone.

Perhaps that would work for mommy?  But then again, she’s at work and I really wouldn’t advise that in her industry.  So, what do we do to get mommy out of the Magenta mood and into say a blue colorful happy color?  Suggestions my friends?  Anything you can help me with?

Happy Friday and Such –

Another Friday is upon us – we all survived another long week!

I plan on hanging out at the Hotel Thompson.  I’m trying to enjoy every minute with mommy that I can in the next couple of weeks before they go on vacation.  Saturday is me and mom bonding day.  We might even try to go in the back yard and play in the leaves.  It’s a possibility.  Mommy says it’s fun.  I’m not so sure at this point.  I’ll keep you posted on my findings.

Sunday I think mom and dad are having date night – eeww. I still don’t get ‘date’ night.  Don’t they see enough of each other during the week?

Do ya’ll have anything planned?

I wanted to share something with you that me and daddy saw on “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” earlier in the week.  I was totally in awe and fascinated – so was daddy.

The question came up <<look to the left>> that asked the following:

High concentrations of the mineral olivine are what make the sand at Hawaii’s Papakolea Beach uniquely what color.

Me and dad looked at each other and automatically said it at the same time.  Okay – maybe he said it and I oinked it – GREEN.  And you are probably saying you’re such a smart piggy.  Well, let me remind you of something.  Earlier in the month of September, I did a posting on Papakolea Beach.  You can see it at https://piglove.wordpress.com/2013/09/04/papakolea-beach-and-princess-coralena/

That is how we knew the answer!  So what does this tell you?  Reading my blog can make you smarter!  Who would have thought that, huh?

 

So, share with your friends.  You never know what you might learn from my blog page.

It could be anything and everything my friends!

Happy weekend – have fun!

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 toats 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 Broxton. 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!

Leprechaun Catcher

20130314-212652.jpg

I have a little friend named Kelsey. She made this Leprechaun Catcher for St. Patricks Day. Isn’t it wonderful? It totally blew me away. I thought it was the cutest thing! I couldn’t wait to show it to mom. Mom thought it was awesome as well. She said that children come up with some of the most amazing things. I agree.

So I have a question for you Ms Kelsey. Once you catch that leprechaun, can I have the catcher. For some reason when I look at it, my tummy growls. 🙂
