Fat Tuesday Tonkinese

Happy FAT Tuesday friends! We hope you are all having a great day and are living it up on this last day before Lent. (Traditionally, they call it Fat Tuesday because people eat rich foods before the ritual practice of fasting for Lent begins.) Today is also another important day...




Today is International Women's Day! We certainly hope that someday women all over the world are given the same opportunities as men, and earn equal pay for equal work. (meanwhile, hey Mom, get us something to eat, will ya?)



Have a terrific Tuesday friends!  xoxo, Busby

  9. Yes, let the good times roll (I speak some French). I did not know it is International Women's day the same day as Mardi Gras. We women sure have an amazing history.

    Hey! Wishing all you cats and ‘beans great well-being and happiness! Please visit my blog about a colony of abandoned/feral cats near my home. There will be stories there as time goes on that could inspire and inform anyone you know who is helping or plans to help homeless cats anywhere.

  13. Happy Fat Tuesday, buddies. Mom "knew" that Lent began tomorrow, but it has kind of snuck up on us. She has to decide if she is going to give up something for Lent pretty fast! I don't do giving stuff up. Sorry.
