Monday Musings ~ October 14, 2019

Monday…again?! Gosh, where the did weekend go? Let’s hope it wasn’t in a wormhole. Here’s a little smile to start out the week with a chuckle.


Today is Indigenous People’s Day (sometimes known as Columbus Day) and is a national holiday in the U.S. We like that name better considering Columbus never actually set foot on U.S. soil. The traveling Italian from Genoa first made landfall in the Western Hemisphere on this date in 1492 on one of the various islands of the Bahamas and then Cuba and Hispaniola, establishing a colony on what is known as Haiti. Today we salute the native people of the Americas.

Live, love, bark! ๐Ÿพ

  1. I collected Benji in one of these and for a while he slept on the bottom (top off) part, next to the new bed I bought for him. The carrier is long gone and he now sleeps anywhere he likes :o)

    1. I know lots of dogs and cat use them but I think theyโ€™re a tad draconian myself. All my dogs can sleep wherever they want. ๐Ÿ˜

  2. Ma wishes i fit in one of those carrier thingies…..I don’t! I likes to make an entrance at the vetties ~ with barks and jumps and barks! BOL!!

    1. The only ‘real’ way to greet the vet is your way, Ruby! Carriers are for cats and hamsters.

  3. Where DID that weekend get to?!!

    And I love that comic strip. I wonder if they say that to themselves? Like . . whoa, these humans are magic. . .


    1. Iโ€™m convinced my dogs think that way. But then I always have been somewhat deluded. LOL ๐Ÿ˜†

  4. Love the wormhole cartoon. So true! It must be confusing. Even though Columbus did sail around on his wee boat, we like the idea of honouring the indigenous people instead. In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue….still remember this from school…..many moons later. lol


    1. It always struck me as strange that we were taught Columbus ‘found’ America. He never stepped foot on any US soil and native Indians were here long before he arrived in the hemisphere. That song will be my ear worm for the rest of the afternoon. ๐Ÿคฃ

  5. I received a text from my kids (human( this morning telling me “Happy Indigenous People Day” I felt ignorant, had to look it up – didn’t even know it existed. I’ll be better prepared next year LOL

    1. Good on your kids! Weโ€™re hoping more states go to that reference. A number of cities have adopted it.

  6. Mee-yow wow Miss Monika iss kewl you are cellybratin Inn-digenous Day! That iss how LadyMew thinkss of Thanxgivinโ€ฆ.that wee ree-memburr an honor Aboriginal peepulls of this Land who helped ferst settlerss survive.

  7. Mondays are always better when they are a holiday. Not that it matters to me, since I’m self-employed, either I never get a holiday, or maybe every day is a holiday? ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Like a fool I went to the Post Office to mail a package. Along with about 8 other peeps who thought they were being proactive and clever. ๐Ÿ˜ Weโ€™ll all be making a return trip tomorrow.

    2. For us retirees, Monday is just another day too. I had forgotten it was a holiday, walking over to the post office. Thank goodness it was a truly gorgeous day. ๐Ÿ™‚

Feel free to bark your thoughts...but no growling please.
