Happy Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday/Paczki Day/Shrove Tuesday....Whatever Day!

I am celebrating this great day by sleeping in until the crack of 10:30am with Holden (who has ANOTHER snow day!).

NOW...because Mom is trying to be all green and more into recycling (thanks to STUBBY!)...we're going to re-use our Mardi Gras post from last year (because the pics make mom laugh!)



Bonjour everyone!!!!

I, Salinger The Pug want to wish each of you a very happy happy Mardi Gras!

In honor of the big day, mom was nice enough to let me stick my head in an almost empty can of her favorite Cafe Du Monde coffee from N'awlins
"Mmmm....can we get some beignets over here????"

She let me play with her voodoo doll
"Heh heh heh....WHO'S gonna get it today???"

I won't even TELL you the degrading things I had to do for these beads...
"Oh no...if the crew from Pugs Gone Wild shows up, I'm in trouble!"

Mom also wants to pass along a BIG "HAPPY PACZKI DAY" to all of her friends and family from the Detroit area! For those of you up there....have a prune paczki for her...they're her favorite!!!!

Is Holden's school going to run longer in the summer because of all these snow days?

Apollo said...

I sure wish Mommy could have snow days too, so she could stay home with me. I loved your celebrating! Party on!

Lovely Mardi Gras post, Salinger, but I need to know more about the prune paczki. You can't just post food photos with no explanation. I'm drooling here.

Martha said...

Salinger, you sure know how to celebrate.
You are looking quite the swinging pug today.
Beads and all.........
Happy Whatever Day to you too.
We just love the sound of snow days.

Hey Salinger! Thanks for the shout out on your blog. I'm so happy your mom is going green these days.

I can't believe Holden has another snow day. At this rate, he's going to be in school until July. I know you love it when he's home and you get to sleep in but I'm sure you'd rather have him home this summer.

I slept in late because Mom is sick today and I'm nursing her back to health. I got out of bed to have breakfast and then went back to bed until 1:00 pm.

Pee-s: Mom told me she's done some crazy stuff to get beads. As soon as I hear 'boobs' I put my paws over my ears!

LOL @ Stubby's comment!

Happy Mardi Gras, Sal! That bead picture made me crack up all over again this year! And the prunes comment made me gag again! hehehe!

houndstooth said...

Poor Holden will be in school all summer at this rate!

I hope I never get on your bad side! That voodoo picture is a little scary! Did you flash your tatas to get those beads?

PACZKI, PACZKI, PACZKI! Give me all there are and then make some more! Our momma is Polish so she knows where to get the good ones and we always get just a tiny bite because she says that it is "tradition" to eat one the day before Lent begins. We don't know about traditions but we vote for PACZKI!

What the hell is snow? You keep talkin' about it and yet we still don't have a clue. We're guessing it makes ya tired because Holding always sleeps when it's mentioned.

Eh, we're off to bark park.


pee ess ~ Stella sold your bead pictures to Pugs-Gone-Wild to buy a plane ticket to Ohio.

It really came down after. We'll see about tomorrow.
