I"M FREEZING MY PECKER OFF!

Said, Mister Turkey.
I am sorry , I just could not resist that one! This is what I saw this morning when I went out to warm up my truck. Baby.....it's cold outside! And my bones don't like it....now I know why old folks move to warmer climates.
We had a little snow yesterday.... It was gone as quickly as it came! Now understand here in Eastern NC we don't do snow. I mean if we get a ground covering.....we shut down...we just don't do snow! You go to store get your bread, milk, monkey food and go Home. Go out and play with the kids for 10 minutes....take a nice picture...collect snow for snowcream...make it eat it....put on warm pj"s and sit by the fire and craft til it is gone!

I can't believe I almost forgot this ...One year ogo Raggedy Angels Primitives officially opened! So I went over to the shop to decide what I wanted to giveaway in honor of this occasion. I decided "Gracie" would love to go home with one of you lovely ladies. Gracie is a true OOAK handmade (by me) 24" doll, and... she grabbed the big Candy Kane ...so I said okaaaay! I will also include a 5oz. room spray of your choice.
So...if you would like to have Gracie and her goodies, leave a comment to be entered, post her pic on your blog and I will put your name in Frostys Hat 5 more times! My lovely assistant Mary-Kate will draw a name out on Sunday Evening! Non-bloggers can enter by emailing me at raggedyangels@intrstar.net

  8. If I can stop laughing about your attention getting post name, I will comment! LOL!! Okay, I'm good. I lived in the Tidewater Virginia area for 7 years and I can attest to the fact that people in your area do shut down when it snows. Being from Ohio, it was such a shock for me, but totally understandable. I found your blog on Leslie's Whatcha Working on Wed. list. You are hilarious! Please enter me in your drawing, cause my mom's name is Grace. I don't know it just seemed like the right thing to say! Lol! Have a great day! ~Beth~

  22. Any temp below 70 degrees is cold for me! lol And both Doug and I are retired so i don't know why we hang around the Midwest year after year - the winters are harsh.

    I could have been positive I posted here yesterday! HMMMMMM.
    Anyway, I have an extra spot on my bed for this sweet little gal....so I do believe she needs a bus ticket headed my way...so PLEASE ENTER ME IN THE DRAWING! Oh, I'll even pay her way here...lol

  23. Okay, I'm still laughin' at the pecker comment!

    I can't help but giggle when I hear how some towns and cities shut down completely when they get a dustin' of snow. :> )

  24. Oooo i'd love to have another something from you:) And she would fill some of my blank spaces just perfectly you know? Count me in...and I'll get it up on my blog tomorrow!

    And I had to laugh about the snow...because we do the very same thing here! My brother lives in Michigan..so he's seen both sides of the spectrum in terms of the snow. We all tell him he lives in the artic...and he laughs at us in return:)

    Have a great night!
