Off To The Carshow

Greetings and Holykisses!

Just a quick post today.

Time to start making a stack of turkey sandwiches to take with us to Petit Jean Mt. Myguy has been anticipating this day for weeks. Nothing like a huge carshow to ice his cake for Father's day weekend.

Not only will there be lots of beautiful cars and trucks to look at but miles upon miles of parts... tools.... -- you know; a man's dream come true. Me; ... my thoughts are racing ahead to the funnel cake that has my name on it, the tall glass of real lemonade, and antiques to sift through. Yes, I said antiques! There's always several vendors who bring trailerfulls of beautiful JUNQUE. Olde typewriters, vintage mason jars, olde bottles, boxes of trash to treasure; rusty, crusty, painty, peely, chippy, GOOD OLE JUNK! Can hardly wait to dig in.
Meanwhile, I leave you with a few pics. I no longer find myself complaining about my own "unruly hair." Puddleduck: Hairdoo- seems to have a cowlick curl happenin.... that has been making her life miserable. It all hangs longer on one side of her head, and no amount of dippitydoo ... can tame it.
All of thee other ducklings, seem to laugh and call her names.... they never let poor Hairdoooooo
joing in any duckling games.
Back at the shed, I thought I'd show you my carrots. Over there; behind the gate; see em?
Nope, that's not Queen Anne's Lace... but actually last year's carrots. I just left what Mrs. Potter couldn't eat, in the ground and this year they went to seed.

This is a carrot seed flower head. I love em! Prettier than even radishes when they are left to go to seed.
Lastly, this olde boy seems to have had a bath in his bucket. He's whiter than snow.
Okay, I've gotta jet! I hope to have lots of pictures with some wonderful flea market carshow finds! Ok, okay, maybe a few pics of cars n trucks too. Not my thing exactly but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. Me going to a carshow, is sort of like Myguy going with me to Hobby Lobby. BUT seeing that goofy look in his eye when he spots his first shiney 69 chevelle of the day will be worth it. lol

I'll eat a whole funnel cake for you.
Dirty job but someone should do it.

Smoochy holykisses,
L
