WooHoo! I Won!
Look at these awesome flip-flops!
Deb at Talking Trash had a contest going on
over the weekend.

You see...her hero "Cat Daddy" had given
her a canned ham.
No, not the Hormel variety,
not the kind you have for Easter dinner,
or the kind you cook with your beans
to make them taste yummy,
or the green eggs and ham kind
but the vintage kind!

A real, honest-to-goodness vintage
canned ham travel trailer!
(I never knew them by this name...
you know they were before my time!)
Anywho, Deb wanted some comments about how to fix that
Baby up so she had a contest .....the prize...a pair of the cutest
flip flops (that are reported to be really comfy) I think I've ever seen!
Well, she ASKED for comments and BOY did she get them!
But I think the one that took the cake (or maybe I should say ham)
was the WHOLE post that the sistas over at Moonlight Hollow did.
It's a little racy.....
but seeing as how all of you are over 21....
you can handle it!
And if you are under 40.......
well it was before your time!

So, sometime in the near future,

you will be traveling down the highway

and something like this......

will whizz by you...
no, it may not be pink...
it may be red, yellow, turquoise or
my fav...leopard and you'll think
"canned ham"!
Look for Deb and her Cat Daddy
to be cruising by
cause she is one amazing chik and she's
gonna have one amazing ham to
tool around in!
Deb, we can't wait to see what
you are going to do with this

Thanks, Cat Daddy for pulling
MY name out of the fish bowl!
I think I may just make you some of my
Famous Chocolate Chip Cookies!
Thanks Deb!

And thank you Jesus...
I'm blessed and highly favored!

From my delighted heart to yours...

Have a blessed and fabulous day!


And CONGRATULATIONS go out to Deb also!
For being asked to be a part of The Vintge Journal.
She wrote a great post over there today....
about some of her favorite
"junkin spots".
Can't wait to check them out!
You go girl!

Patti-I am speechless. I'll be back after I collect my thoughts.I'm just a little overwhelmed right now. Debbie

Sue Jackson said...

Hey Patti,
I LOVE the flip flops, but even love the "canned ham" more, especially the pink one! I have to say, I've never heard that expression, is it a Texas thing;0}
Pretty cool! Take care, Sue

Ok I'm back to properly thank you for one of the most wonderful thank you notes I have ever received. I was supposed to be handing out the prize, not the other way around. I truly am the winner here. I am also one who is blessed and favored. God has allowed me to meet such lovely people like yourself through blogging. Even though I sometimes don't get things done around my home because I'm reading and keeping tabs on folks like yourself, I know it is time well spent. He wouldn't allow me the opportunity to make friendships with those who know and love Him otherwise. Thank you for helping to make life a joy and delighting my heart. XXXOOO Debbie
