June 28th

Born and Raised in the northern part of the US, I defintaly know who Paul Bunyan is, so today it was fun to learn that June 28th is Paul Bunyan Day!.

If you have lived in a cave all your life, and don't know who he is, let me tell you!

Paul Bunyan is a legend of a giant lumberjack. He was credited with the develeopment and settling of the Northern logging states.  He had a giant blue ox named Babe. By legend Paul created the Great Lakes as a watering hole for Babe.  Paul logged and cleared the entire states of North and South Dakota for farming. And Babes giant footprints left behind are now what we call the 10,000 lakes of Minnesota.
One story I alway remember was that when the people would make Pauls pancakes in a giant iron skillet, they would put huge blocks of butter on their feet and skate around the pan in order to grease it.
