I know you're wonderin' what the heck this is all about ...
well, i'll tell ya'
It's all about my latest
Went for my eye exam and it turned our fair... just a "smidgin" change in my eyes so that was great..
With my eyes dialeted and not seein' that great,
we went across the street to
" Cracker Barrel" for lunch..
I sorta guessed at the menu and come up with a good choice..
So after lunch, we headed out to Hobby Lobby and since I couldn't see that great yet, I spied this " gotta-have"
red wooden roosted..
you just gotta have
that wooden rooster !!!
Well, when I focused in on the price... he was $40.00 and there were lots of things at 30% off...
I said to the little rooster..
" now why aren't you 30% off..??"
Well, there was an employee workin' on the next isle and she heard my plea... and she says
" we have a coupon in our sales flyer for 40% off on any one item at regular price.. "
Well, I'm just thrilled to hear that and she say's I'll get one for ya'..
So I grabbed that " gotta have" rooster and put him snuggly in my buggy...
After a few more purchases
( well at Hobby Lobby my purchases are not " a few")
but on to the checkout and pay, my sister picks up all the bags... and as we get to the door..
I reached for some of the bags from her hands to mine .... and then to the floor !!
oh no !! not my rooster....
oh yeah, my rooster...
I opened the bag and
my rooster has his little red feet broke off..
I'm just in tears...
really , real tears..
So my " crafty" sister says..
" now Maurine, don't cry... I think I can fix him"
It's a clean break.. if there is such a thing....
so I stop cryin' and sniffin'' and
she takes " broken legged" red rooster and kept him over night and brought him home the next day with a
" smooth fix" on his little legs..
well, here he is with just a
" teeny-weeny" fix line..
CAN YA' SEE IT ?
Hey ! I can live with that..
Forgot to move the lamp "thingy "
behind him.. oh well,
don'tcha just love him !!!
so for now, I'll leave ya' with
the latest sad story
♥ th' sister saga ♥
about the " limping red rooster"
