BIRTHDAYS & HOLIDAYS

Today is Flag Day.  Sometime this week is Butthead’s guestimated Birthday (aka. Day of hatching).  And Sunday is Father’s Day.

Flag Day is a day (actually a week) dedicated to celebrating the Birthday of the US Army and the adoption of the flag of the United States of America.  Mom is pretty passionate about our flag.  She believes that if you are a true American at heart you will respect the flag regardless if you agree or disagree with our countries politics.  She used to be on the color guard way back when and so now when she sees people mistreating the flag she really gets her panties in a knot.  From what I understand, there are special rules about how to fly the American flag, how to put it up, how to take it down, how it should be lit, and so forth.  Every morning during our morning jog Mom curses at every house we pass  that has left their flag out over night without the proper lighting on it, or at those houses that have left their flag out for so long that is terribly torn and faded.  You should really hear her when we drive by a government building and she sees some government employee taking down the flag and simply crumpling it up in a ball or dragging it on the ground, thankfully I’m deaf and can’t hear her potty mouth when that happens.

Butthead’s Birthday.  Since we found him wandering the streets, we really don’t know when Butthead was hatched.  If you ask me, I think he actually is this creature that was spewed from the waste pits at the local cheese factory on the hill and took the form of a furry black dog who is now trying to steal my Mom away from me.   I’ve tried to warn her that he is an imposter and I’m convinced he will eventually morph into something more sinister.  Las Cruces-20130308-00245

Mom just tells me that I’m being silly and need to stop watching those monster movies.   Anyway, one day, she’ll see that I’m right about this…meanwhile, I’m just gonna sleep with one eye open.

Las Cruces-20130226-00234 Oh yeah, I was talking about Butthead’s birthday…(so the actual date is sometime this week, at least that’s what the vet thinks)…Mom made him a cake!  Can you believe that?!  1014725_195956620561783_1372958987_o

And she let him wear my special ‘Birthday Boy’ bandana that I got from Miss Kelly the Director of Fun at Karen’s Animal House Doggy Day Care!  That’s MY bandana!   AND they had a special party for him!  All this just because he turned 1 year old…well BIG Stinking DEAL!  WhatEVERrr!  You can see that I am not at all trilled about him getting such attention.

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY DAD…You’re the BEST.
