Leap Year...the last day of February 2008....Friday, February 29th....a special date...and then we don't see this date again for another 4 years...pretty cool huh?
so my "Chick Gone Wild" illustration is a perfect choice for my post to celebrate this special day!
She is leaping around dancing like a crazy chick and leading us into the spring and Easter season.
She is so happy twirling and laughing because she knows that springtime is just around the corner and it is so hard to wear pretty half shells and ribbons in the wintertime.....so finally she is going to be dressed more appropriately.
She is leaping for joy that soon her good pal the Easter Bunny will be hopping down the bunny trail and leaving her pretty hand painted eggs and sweet candy to chomp on. Besides, they just like to hang out...they go way back.( he digs a cool looking chick in a half shell)
She is just giddy because she loves when the flowers are in bloom and the butterflys come back to play with her and other garden friends.
Chickie is tossing the flowers high in the air in a celebration dance that soon it will be spring, the weather will be warm and sunny, the flowers will be up, the birds and bees will be buzzing and chirping, the days will be longer and lighter, and she will be able to romp around in her painted half shell without feeling a chill at all.(and who doesn't like a cool chick dancing anytime of the year wearing what ever??)
So, today we should all be "Chicks Gone Wild"...leap around, dance, throw on your half shell or your dancing clothes, throw caution to the wind, twirl and laugh and hoot and holler since this last day of February surely means that springtime is not far behind, that Easter is coming and it is early this year, the sun is shining, it is a good day and it is Friday...so the weekend is here...and....
the Captain and I are going to work on the "brite work" on our boat this weekend...(that is the term for the varnished wood on a boat).....which means.......that....... oh how exciting....I can feel a dance coming on...that the boating season......... which follows shortly after the spring season.......is not too too far away.
So leap away my bloggette buddies...dance around, cavort..twirl...enjoy-laugh-be merry-sing-call a friend, have lunch-dance the day away....
for this is the last day of February...the 29th, 2008 and that is very cool indeed!
I have to go find my half shell!!
