Last Friday

Last Friday, the coworker and I took the day off to attend her first craft show in Stephenville to peddle her photos. We had a fun time, even though we missed the 30 minutes of snow in Waco while we were gone!! She had a great spot because we were beside a guy that had a great ability. He made "yard birds" from old farm tools/equipment. At first, the coworker and I kinda turned our noses up at them, "would you put one of those in your yard?", the coworker asked me. But, by the end of the day they had really grown on us and I came home with a couple!!! This little guy is sooooo cute!! The picture makes him look a bit sinister but he really isn't. Nuts for his eyes, part of what we think is a planter for his beak, his wings are from some sort of plow, his pot belly is the leg from an old stove, turned upside down. Let me tell you, he is HEAVY!!
His feet are made of rebar, and his backside is made of horseshoes where I can set a plant if I want to. But I don't see this little guy being put outside. He has been keeping watch over my kitchen from the top of the refrigerator. I think I will call him Perry the Penguin.
I purchased quite a few gifts at the craft fair. I would have been better off being at work as much money as I spent. But it was all good!!!
