Hello Friends! Did you have a good weekend? As I mentioned in Friday's post, I had a relative in town, my cousin Grapes, and I planned to take him to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, but couldn't because of this freakin' government shutdown. Don't get me started on THAT again! We ended up having a good time doing other things but it was a shame that we didn't get to see Ellis Island because my cousin is really interested in genealogy, and informed me that we actually had ancestors come through Ellis Island. Isn't that cool? Here's a photo he showed me of our great, great, great, great, great, great (that might be too many greats) Grandfather with some companions from the Old Country (I'm not really sure which old country, you'd have to ask Grapes):
Grapes thought there was a strong family resemblance, but I don't really see it. Anyway, I want to thank this snazzily dressed young mule in the photo for working hard and following his dream to go to America because he paved the way for me to follow my dreams! Now readers, go out and follow your dreams, if he could do it so can you! And Republicans, you better turn this government shutdown thing around, I'm not kidding. Don't think I forgot about my promise to go down there and kick your withered old butts! Hahahahaha! Have a good week y'all!
