5 May 15

Happy Cinco de Mayo! It's a Mexican holiday, celebrating a victory over French forces in 1862. Due to this outcome, Napoleon III was unable to deliver supplies to the Confederacy, benefiting the Union in the U.S. Civil War. Bob the Tomato is happy to be red, white and green for Cinco de Mayo, but he is also here to smile about National Grump-Out Day -- 24 hours of NO GRUMPINESS -- tomorrow! My sombrero and plate were acquired in Progreso, Mexico, on two trips to work with Mission Discovery, in 2007 and 2009.
