It's George's Birthday!



Hi Everybuddy -

It's a big day today. It's George Washington's birthday! He was quite a notorious fella who had many accomplishments.....sort of like myself. George was the very first President of our country which is what he is probably the best known for. He had a lovely wife named Martha who I'm told like to bake cakes. I know I would have loved her. We know George was popular because of the way we remember him. He's honored in many ways. He has had many wonderful portraits painted. We like this one in particular because it has a horse that resembles our Logan in it:



George's image appears on various forms of currency....like the quarter:


and the dollar bill:



George even appears in the side of a mountain....Woo! :



I will agree that my accomplishments probably aren't considered as noteworthy as George's. I have not served as President of our country (yet). I have not led any troops into battle or had an opportunity (yet) to make any laws. My accomplishments are impressive nonetheless however. For instance, I'm a pro at emptying the dishwasher. I can grab something out of the trash can before Mom even has a chance to stop me. I relocate a glass full of a beverage from the counter to the floor without spilling a drop. I can swiftly grab somebuddy's sandwich right off the plate the minute they turn their back. I think these skills certainly qualify me for some type of national honor. I thought about it for awhile and came up with the perfect thing:

Now I need to figure out how to convince someone to carve my likeness into the side of a mountain....Woo!
Until then, take the day to appreciate all George has done for our fine country and take a little time to appreciate your own accomplishments.

John just about blew coffee out of his nose!
We need to get ahold of someone who knows how to carve with some TNT.

On the back of every piece of currency, it should say - In Dog We Trust.

You're on a dollar bill!?!? That's so cool! If we had a mountain here, I'd help carve your face on it!
Hey, I wonder if George Washington's horse is one of Logan's ancestors?

I agree, Echo. You're a fine contributor to our society. I think if you get Mt. Echo, you should charge admission in the form of cake.
