Hola KC! Feliz cinco de mayo. Espero encontrar alguna semilla de girasol en la piñata, hehehe. No tendrán una ham-quila o algo así? Por cierto, El stand de "Brownie's Fiesta & Nachos" está abierto al publico, ¿Quién quiere venir a comer?

Que tengan un feliz día! :o3

PASS THE MEOW-GARITAS!! (What Mommy? It's too early? Well it's 6:25 am here...it has to be 6:25 pm SOMEWHERE!)

Mommy: You are right! I'll have one of those meow-garitas! And a crisp roasted lizard too! I love exotic foods! Keep those meow-garitas coming!

Special occasions call for special rules: We can all have Lizquila and bring onthe live dead ham! Yum!!! Oh geeze....Sassy is already swinging from the ceiling with Smokey! Seaborne & Sol have "bellied up" to the bar! Sam is making love eyes at Missy! Spats & Summer are feasting onthe roast chick-hens!

You throw the best parties!!!

TRES LECHES CAKE....THAT IS MOMMY'S FAVORITE!!! Mommy...you can't eat it all! Auntie ML, hope you have more than one!

Oh dear, Mommy is already dancing...let's just hope that she doesn't start singing....that'll clear the room real quick!

Way down, South of the border
Way down, Mexico way
They’re having a big celebration
It’s on the 5th of May.

You can hear the castanets, they’re playing.
You can hear maracas keep the beat.
You can hear the guitars wildly playing.
You can watch them dancing in the street.

Oh, Cinco de Mayo.
It’s a Mexican holiday.
Oh, Cinco de Mayo.
It’s the 5th of May.

It’s a time to celebrate freedom.
It’s a time for independence too.
It’s a time to remember heroes.
It’s a time of pride for Mexico.

Oh, Cinco de Mayo.
It’s a Mexican holiday.
Oh, Cinco de Mayo.
It’s the 5th of May.

It’s the 5th of May.

So nothin has changed here at the cozy cottage except mommy is going to put her gift on me real soon. Not happy...not happy at all even lookin at that stuff! Maybe i iwll run away. I will take my nice new blanket that you sent to me along tied in a bundle hanging on a stick. I love it so much because it is Peachy colored and soooo warm. Sure wish I knew who green papered it for me. I love the vintage postcards almost as much as mommy does...but then I loved my special tag much better!!
I love you all and thank you so much for loving me too....your Peachy (almost healed up now...almost)
