Happy May Day!


He was as fresh as the month of May.

~~ from The Canterbury Tales (believed started in early 1380s) by Geoffrey Chaucer

The Humours of May Day
What Frolicks are here
So droll and so queer
How joyful appeareth the day
E'en Bunter and Bawd
Unite to applaud
And celebrate first of the May.

~~ Anonymous, circa 1770


I ran as fast as I could to wish you all a Happy May Day!

But I am a day late and a dollar short.

And you know what else I am short of? A May Day Basket. I did not receive one.


John Maler Collier, Queen Guinevre’s Maying, circa 1900 (Cartwright Hall Art Gallery, Bradford, England)

William Powell Frith, A May Day Celebration, circa Unknown but believed to be between 1870s – 1890s (Private Collection)

Back to me...

Very curious. First no Easter basket, and now no May Day basket. What's up with that?

Hey, Mr. Bull, if you happen to see any homeless Easter and May Day baskets please let me know. I seem to be missing mine.

By the way, I have a great joke! A bull, a deer, and a dog go into a hamburger joint...

What?! Where are you going? That joke is so funny!

No sense of humor.

My quest for my missing Easter and May Day baskets continues. And I will boldly go where no dog has gone before to find them. Except anywhere near Ninja Cats. Or Kung Fu Bunnies. I'm just sayin'...

Woo Hoo, it's Suka!!! We have missed you! We want to hear the rest of the joke:) And Happy May Day to you. If it makes you feel any better, we didn't get any Easter basket or May Day basket either.

Hi Suka, nice to see you again, it's been a while. What...no baskets at all? Me either, but happy May Day anyway. Your friend, the bull, isn't into jokes, but he seems friendly! Take care, your friends, Tiger and Cindy

BOL Suka! Terrible joke you told that bull Ha!

Happy late May Day to you too :)

Now about those missing baskets...might not be a bad thing, this way no one can call you a 'basket' case ;)

Waggin at ya,

bbes tribe said...

Hey Suka, we have missed you. You look wonderful running through the tall grass!! You know, we didn't get any Easter Basket or a May Day basket either. what's with that? That bull was rude not to listen to your cool joke - you're right - NO sense of humor.. Pretty pics your M included too.

Remington said...

I think we need to get Sherlock Holmes on the case! I bet he can find the missing baskets!

Hound Girl said...

We are a little late on the may day but Happy May day!!!

brudy1120 said...

I didn't get a basket either. Maybe they are together somewhere. I'll keep checking if you do.

I am sorry you didn't get a basket for May Day, but My Vickie really liked the joke.

And all the pcitures.....It cheered our day.....

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

So glad to see a new post, dear friend! Makes for the happiest of May Days! I think the problem is an international basket shortage,you might look ito that.

Duendes said...

Hi Suka
is always a pleasure to stroll through your blog and appreciate your photos!!

Kirsten (peacefuldog) said...

You gave me a big smile...and you didn't even finish the joke! Maybe the bull was laughing so hard he had to wander away...

FiveSibesMom said...

Happy May Day to you too, beautiful Suka! Oh, Suka...we will have to speak with your hu-mom and find out what's going on with no Easter & May Day baskets for you! Love your frolicking pic! And what's up with that cow...we thought that was a great joke! Wooo!

Love the inspirational quotes & moments of beauty! Here's to a happy May for all!

Chicco said...

Oh dear Suka,

I'm so sorry that you hadn't receive anything for May... but don't worry: i haven't received anything too!
Eeheh..! Oh and mr. Bull was not so kind with you.
Have a nice weekend and a great may, my friend!
Woof, woof,


Alfie said...

Suka! Your grass is so tall! I would have so much fun in there. That poor bull can't take a joke. I just hope HE never finds himself in a burger joint ;)

My buddy, don't feel too bad about not getting anything in May. I wasn't even aware of the May day basket, if I was, I would be doing some serious begging!

Hope you are having fun with your bull friend! It's always exciting to see a new blog post from you! :D

Hello Dear Suka!

What's a May Day basket for again? I think I've missed out on them. We do, however, have this celebration called "Flores de Mayo" where in little children will march through the streets with bouquets/baskets of flowers. Maybe those homeless baskets ended up here.

Huggies and Cheese,
