'Happy Columbus Day : From My Family To Yours ... The Caranos'

In fourteen hundred ninety-two;
Columbus sailed the ocean blue .

He had three ships and left from Spain;
He sailed through sunshine , wind and rain .

He sailed by night ; he sailed by day;
He used the stars to find his way .

A compass also helped know ;
How to find the way to go .

Ninety sailors were on board ;
Some men worked while others snored .

Happy Columbus Day 


  1. Happy Columbus Day to you "guys" too, Nee! Are the little darlings off from school today? Hopefully they are in the kitchen baking up some goodies:) I hear your weather is torrential!!! Stay dry and enjoy:)

  2. Thank you Louise ! Happy Columbus Day to you and Marion . Oh yes the Awesome Foursome was out for the holiday (giggling) they are in the kitchen getting their stuff together to make the Chiffon Cranberry pie and hubby's aunt is going to make cranberry cookies with them .
    Yes the rains is torrential and may last a few days . We are on high ground so we are not worrying about the flooding . If Red River rise too high the Coast Guard will close all the casinos . (((HUGS))) to you and Marion and wiggle those toes ;-D ~~Nee~~ :)

  3. Morning Nee, Happy Columbus Day to you as well. Thank you...Like your gif photo...Heard that your children are home and are baking. A great day to spend together. Keep dry, I saw on the weather channel that you are in a mess there. Hope that you have a blessed and enjoyable day! Dottie :)

  4. Evening Dottie ,
    Thanks and hope Columbus is happy for you also .
    Columbus Day is a holiday here and no school or mail ;-D .
    My kids is making the recipes Louse has on her blog post . I must say the Chiffon pie is delicious . Their cookies is pretty good also . This time of year , we get lots of rains ... no tornadoes yet ... the worst thing that can happen is flash flooding .
    I watch the weather channel also , you can never really tell just how bad it is .... they may say it's raining cats and dogs in Shreveport and all we see in my part of town is dark clouds .
    Thank you for your concern and we will stay dry . Thanks for stopping by abd have a blessed week . ~~Nee~~ ;-D
