Today is the start of Fiestas Patrias in Chile. It's a two-day long celebration commemorating the independence of Chile. More on that later. But here's the Google doodle just for the fun of it.
Quick shout out to my niece, Charley. Today is her first birthday. Here's my favorite picture of her. This was taken back in January when she was around four months old.
This picture always makes me smile.
And finally, Bacon. My mom sent me this picture today. My baby, Bacon will be arriving in Chile in three days! My mom and Joe will be coming with him, of course. And Lucy, too (that's another cat).
As he will soon become a Chilean cat, I feel it's only appropriate to change his name from Bacon to Tocino. (That's Spanish for 'Bacon'.)
