Happy Cinco de Mayo!

If you live in Texas...you know what today is.......
Cinco de Mayo commemorates the victory of the Mexican army over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5th, 1862. It is mostly a day for us to drink margaritas... because we need an excuse to have them in the middle of the week?

AHHH- margaritas!! I have a student now whose name is Margarita, but I'm sure she's not drinking them! Anyway, I was depressed a bit today because i wanted to be at some cinco de mayo parties at Mexican restaurants...but it didn't happen. Didn't think I could stay in control if i brought Scarlet!
Happy day to you though!

I read somewhere that it was a battle over a bakery strike (or bread embargo?) in Pueblo, so drinking to celebrate makes about as much sense. How come the Alamo isn't celebrated? You have to remember it, but does anyone set aside a whole day to toast drinks to it? Enquiring minds want to know!

Looks like you had a good time today! Wish I could have been there!

Hey, word on the blog street had it was your birthday yesterday? Today? Either way, happy day! (I should have sent you a birthday card, not a get well one!)

Jeanie said...

Linda,
Happy Cinco de Mayo...or Seis de Mayo! Thanks for stopping by! I wish I lived in Mexico...but Texas sounds like a good second best. I love those blue glasses.I remember my grandparents having some turquoise ones and I wish I had them now.
Hugs,
