Well yesterday was a busy day at Junk Among Us. Thank God! We certainly don’t want to haul anything back, especially a small sail boat that floated up in Speed’s yard after Hurricane Ike. And now we don’t have to!!! Hopefully we can unload some of this junk onto more people! This is the last weekend we’ll be here. Whatever we don’t get rid of I’m thinking of making into something really cool and charge someone a bunch of money for it! Or just use it in my own home! 😉
Well, Junk-O-Rama Prom would’ve been even more awesome if the weather didn’t completely suck. Well maybe not “completely” since it wasn’t raining, which would have made it suck even more. But it was cold and windy!! (I have a pic of me below all bundled up, that’s how cold it was!) If the wind was gone then it wouldn’t have been too bad, but Geeze Louise! Belle got there in the afternoon, and we had a bit of time to walk around. We went to the Junk Gypsy tent and took a picture in their home made photo booth. Their “helper” that’s on their TV show helped us out and took our picture for us. I saw the Junk Gypsy sisters’ Dad watching him help us out. I said “Hey, aren’t you the guy on the show that helps them?” and he said “Yeah, that’s me” He was very nice (and not to mention cute to boot!) I asked if he was going to the Prom (of course he was) and he mentioned he had to go back home and get his hat. That was one cool thing about the Prom, was asking people if they were going. “Are you going to the Prom?” One person told me it was the only thing worth coming out here for three weeks. I might have to agree. While shopping around vendors would ask “Are you looking for a Prom dress?” I had one guy (a weird kind of dude) ask me if I had a date to the Prom. (Ummmm, my husband of course!!) Belle and I went back to the travel trailer and got dressed for the Prom, (and I plan to wear that dress again since I had to cover it up with a jacket and scarf!) (which was still cute of course!!) We ate at the Royer’s Cafe at Zapp Hall, delicious, and again I probably would’ve enjoyed it more if I wasn’t in the cold, because apparently sausage gets cold quick. I was smart enough to sneak my flask in loaded with Pinnacle Whipped vodka, yum! Which I mixed with diet coke in the awesome cup that Belle got me at the Junk Gypsy shop. I loved their T-shirts! Mama Tried, Kiss My Grits, Thelma, Louise. Check out their stuff here: http://www.gypsyville.com/collections/frontpage Apparently Miranda Lambert was there, or so we were told, we didn’t get to see her. We kind of just stuck to our seats the entire time not wanting to move from the warm spot we made in our chairs. We had a great time people watching. Great costumes and dresses, the Fayette County Sheriff boys telling people to get down from dancing on the tables and threatening jail, ladies getting a bit too tipsy and falling from tripping on their dresses. Good times had by all!! We stayed until 11 or so, took our obligatory pictures and left. We decided to drive home so we could check on the new dogs, and the travel trailer sure would’ve been cold, even with the heater on! All in all a great experience, but I sure hope the weather is warmer next time! ‘Cause there will be a next time! (see pics below)
Nothing new about the dogs. We think the new one, Blondie, should have a name that starts with the letter D. Mainly because we have Annie and Coco, and then we named the first new one Bo, so that’s ABC. I also wanted it to rhyme with Coco or Annie, so I searched some names online and I mentioned Dizzy, and then Speed said Busy and Dizzy. I guess he wanted to change Bo’s name to Busy, which kind of fits him perfectly, but I’m not sure. Coco, Annie, Busy, and Dizzy? We also think that Dizzy AKA Blondie has an eye sight issue, that’s why I went with Dizzy since he stumbles around a bit. Poor baby. I honestly can’t wait to take him to the vet, even though it’s going to probably be difficult and costly. I think I’ll take him first, I’m going to assume that since he seems so old he doesn’t really need to get neutered. Speed is going to be going to Galveston on Tuesday so when I do take him it will be by myself and in our Kia. I think it will be interesting to say the least. If anyone had any ideas for names let me know!
So this morning I woke up with a pain in my right ear, and I think I’m getting an earache. Since it’s Saturday and I’m busy I won’t be able to go to the doctor until next week. (Who am I kidding? Like there is any way I would be able to see a doctor in this town. It’s an act of congress just to find one that’s accepting new patients!) I’m trying to remember what I should do. I thing I’m supposed to put some rubbing alcohol in it to dry it up. I’ll be looking this up on the internet first, because everything is true in the internet. LOL! I’ll probably be consulting my Web MD app! Hopefully it won’t start hurting too bad! If anyone knows any home remedies, let me know!
