Hug an Aussie Day!!

Crikey how good is this????? Who knew? ..... it's HUG AN AUSTRALIAN DAY!!  Fair dinkum!!

I heard all about it through my Mates, Reilly and Denny at Cowspotdogs. They live in the States but their Mom is an Aussie like me.  Here's how it all came about.  Hug An Australian Day is an annual event that was founded by Thomas and Ruth Roy of the Wellcat.com website. Though the origins of this event are unclear, Hug An Australian Day has quickly become popular over the last few years, and is celebrated by sending the likes of greeting cards and e-cards to Aussie friends.  Hey all you blokes out there ..... I'm Australian!!!!  Hug me ...... PLEASE!     Forget the e-cards and greeting cards ..... just send hugs.  I LOVE HUGS ..

Might have to start up one of these days for you blokes over there or is there already one? It's amazing what pops up on this blog thing, aye??  You never know what's next but right now I'm just going to sit back and enjoy hug an Aussie day. Dad hugged me .... he picked me up to do it. I'm still recovering! Mum hugged me. I might NEVER recover!!

Here's some hugs from me to all my mates too. hugssssssssssssssssss ... hugsssssssssssssss!!!!!

HAPPY HUG AN AUSSIE DAY EVERYONE!!

Wanna run ... Love, Charlie.

    And more of the same from the rest of our furmily OMD, growlmy's peeps had to choose between USA, Canada or Australia when they were trying to leave the Netherlands...they chose Canada...my grand-growlmy had a cousin living in Australia fur a while, does that make me sort of one too, BOL! And growlmy's girl-furend lived there fur a couple of years...

    1. Thanks MrJF Sir .... I loved all your hugs. I reckon if your Grand-Growlmy's cousin lived in Australia for a while then that, sure as anything, makes you part Aussie too. AND Growlmy's girlfriend too. Crikey you're almost a full blooded Aussie. Better send you some belated hugs for hug an Aussie day.

    1. Thankyou so much Mazy ... I've seen you too on my mates pages and I sure would like to be friends with you. North Dakota, aye. Is that anywhere near the black hills? This will probably date her but my Mum used to love a song called the black hills of Dakota when she was a little girl. Pretty much the same here today. Cold, rainy and windy. We're on holidays at the moment in the mountains. I'll be glad to get home to a bit of warmth. Thanks for the hugs ...
