There. All done.

Have a great weekend and I’ll see you back here Monday. Which is a holiday Monday here, but I won’t be greedy.

Monday… a holiday?
Cinco de cuartro?
Oh no, maybe cuartro de cinco?
Wait! Eye Noe! Siete de mayo!
Thanks, Obama…
Is this a holiday celebrated days late to give government workers more time off? With pay?

Celebrating the victory of a Mexican army under a group of guys who are long gone from power, against a French army representing another group of guys who are long gone from power.


And not a single comment about my retail stock of fine French rifled muskets which have never been fired, and were only dropped once.


Almost made it.

Very few people remember that Cinco De Mayo was very nearly celebrated on 15 September rather than May 5th. That’s the day in 1847 that the American Army captured Mexico City. Fortunately for Tequilla lovers everywhere, after 5 months of hard work and 18 million dollars, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed, forcing the Mexicans to keep most of their country, although the U.S. did accept Texas (a big win!), New Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado (a wash), and California (undecided) in the process.

Very good bc it would have conflicted with Mexican Independence Day on Sept 16 which is celebrated by getting drunk and then beating the wives. Seriously, the number of domestic violence cases on 9/16 is horrible.

I like tequila but it doesn’t like me. Gives me heartburn that there is no relief from. So I leave this drunken holiday to the younguns to celebrate. I shall sleep late, eat much and drink some that is not tequila. Just like every weekend that I don’t have to work.

Ric – for the record, I do abuse alcohol (although I would argue it’s mostly an even fight with Tequila), but never women. Even on Indpendence Day.

In case you didn’t celebrate the holiday hard enough.
Here is the completely not fake history, because, some people may call this a cumquat, but we know dang well it’s a watermelon.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
