NATIONAL PAUL BUNYAN DAY
On June 28 we remember fondly the tales of big blue ox and a mighty lumberjack. It is National Paul Bunyan Day!
Described as a giant and a lumberjack of unusual skill, Paul Bunyan is one of the most famous North American folklore heroes. In the tales, Paul Bunyan was almost always accompanied by his companion, Babe the Blue Ox.
First appearing in print in 1906, in a story published by Northern Michigan journalist James MacGillivray, Bunyan’s character originated in folktales circulated among lumberjacks in the Northeastern United States and Eastern Canada. One account states that the tales began during the Papineau Rebellion of 1837. In 1914, the stories were reworked by William Laughead, for a logging company’s advertising campaign, and found a new widespread popularity. It was the 1922 edition of Laughead’s tales that inspired many others and soon the character was widely known across all of the United States and Canada.
The Paul Bunyan legend tells that it took five storks to carry him as a newborn and as he was a little older and clapped and laughed, it broke windows. The legend continues that he sawed off the legs of his parents’ bed, in the middle of the night, when he was only seven months old and that the Grand Canyon was formed as he and Babe the Blue Ox walked through dragging his axe behind him. The myth of the Great Lakes being formed by Bunyan needing to create a watering hole for Babe to drink from is another popular one told by many.
Mom said we earned our name over the weekend – “Wrecking Crew” – really she said I earned the title of the CEO of the Wrecking Crew. I disagree. Why? Simply because it wasn’t me.
What did “I” [it was them] do? This:

No, it WASN’T ME. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
We’re Hosting a Gymnastic Bathing Event on August 14th! Go HERE for more information!!!
Good Sunday Selfie Morning everyone!! I have a new selfie for you today! Mom knew some-one or some-fur was eating all of the stray’s food at night and she finally got a picture of him/her! The photos are a little grainy – but then it was 3:30 in the morning and mom was trying to be extra quiet!
Here’s PeggySue’s Selfie!
Long-distance selfie of PeggySue and MerryBelle. Ignore mom’s messy bed. After she found MerryBelle napping she didn’t want to disturb her by going any closer. As it was MerryBelle ran away right after! That’s PeggySue posing nicely in the sunshine!
And finally my selfie – taken when I was practicing for the Gymnastic Bathing Event on August 14th!! Click on the badge below for more info to Pawticipate!!!
