~OH NO..not another ROOSTER...~
Now be nice! I couldn't help it. Dena bought a cutie at a thrift shop...and all I could find was a painting. Yes, yes, it was cute, and yes I love the way the frame turned out...however...the search has been on for a rooster lamp. I wanted BIG one for the sofa table in the dining room. So far nothing. Yes, this was a catalog find..and you all probably know exactly the catalog...but...he was just so doggoned sweet. I fought the urge. Well..I DID!! (stamping foot here!) No..really..I tried. From now on..it's thrift shops only. But..I mean just LOOK at him. Isn't he cute?? (Christer...shhhh.. :)
I used to try and whistle when I was a little girl. Everyone tried to teach me. All the cousins..Granddaddy, Uncle Earl. I would walk around all day long with my mouth all pursed up trying to whistle and getting nothing but air. Now and then a tiny sound would come out and I would be encouraged. When Grandma saw me doing this she would say.. "Now Miss Priss, whistling girls and crowing hens always come to some bad end!" I wonder what she meant by that???
