We got the flag up!
We are ready to celebrate! Chance and I may have danced around the flag if we didn’t have such huge snowbanks!
The big parade will commence tomorrow…it is okay to share the day with that lesser known St. Patrick. I am certain that many Minnesota towns and cities will be wearing the purple and the green in honor of St. Urho…who chased those pesky grasshoppers out of Finland and saved the grapes! I will be taking lots of photos of the parade! We are expecting sunshine and 40F ABOVE zero ( 4C eh!)…practically sunbathing weather.
St. Urho’s Day Poem
Ooksie kooksie kollme vee
Santia Urho is the boy for me
He chase out the hopper as big as pirds
Never before have I heard those words
He really told those bugs of green
Bravest Finn I ever seen
Some celebrate for St. Pat and his snake
But that Urho boy got what it takes
He got tall and strong on feelia sour
And ate Kalla Mojakkaa every hour
Thats why that guy dould chase those beetles
That crew as thick as jack pine needles
So let’s give a cheer
in our very best way
On the sixteenth of March
St. Urho’s Day!
