And by we I mean me.
I've fallen in love.
With this 1948 Wee Wind.
And the '62 Bambi.
But mostly with the Wee Wind.
I want one.
And before we go any further,
let me answer all your questions.
You (or The Chief): Lu, why do you need a restored Airstream Trailer?
Me: I don't.
You (or The Chief): What exactly would you do with a restored Airstream Trailer?
Me: I have no idea.
You (or The Chief): Then why on Earth do you want one?
Me: Because I do.
So now that we've cleared that up,
I have to move forward with my plan.
My plan to get one.
A Wee Wind.
And then maybe a Bubble,
and to complete my collection,
But I must
I've decided to start with a very bold gesture.
I figure that in order to show some
on my part,
Practically Unheard Of.
Nothing Short of Unbelievable.
I'm giving away one of my
One of my precious,
To one of my readers!!!!!!!!!
It might be YOU!
or may not
have a totally selfish reason
for doing this.
I'll say to The Chief,
"Hey Chief, you know how you always want me to get rid of some of my bowls, because they take up all the space in the cabinets,
and because you think it's certifiably nuts that anyone could possibly collect a gabillion Texasware Bowls,
and how you think that they all look alike anyway???
And The Chief will reply, "Yes."
And then I'll say,
"Well Chief, you'll be glad to hear that I'm giving away one of my bowls to a lucky Mudpuddle reader!"
And then he'll say, "Well, good Lu."
And then I'll make my move.
And I'll say,
"So NOW can I have a Wee Wind?"
And he will politely excuse himself to his workshop
where he will think
while trying to forget
I'm in the house
a huge photo of the
to the front
of the refrigerator.
So here's all you have to do.
in the comments section of the blog
answer this question:
"What do you collect? And tell us why!
When you do,
you're entered to win this!!
It's a #118 official marked Texas Ware bowl!
And although it looks like the size of my bathtub in the picture,
it's about 10 inches across the top.
I promise you, we're on the up and up around here.
I'll have Weegie draw a number to pick the winner!
He should be involved!
He always likes to be involved in all my stuff!
Really he does!!
Anyhoo - remember to enter you must comment here.
And even though you can still give a comment on FB,
not all of Mudpuddle's readers are on FB,
so I wanted everyone to have a shot at it!
If you win, I will send it to you all wrapped and safe (I'll pay postage).
I hope the winner doesn't live in Turkey or something.
Oh, and P.S. again
The winner will just need to sign and return the custody agreement I'll enclose,
which says that I will still have
to the bowl,
and that Me and the other Bowls
can just show up at any time
at your house
in your kitchen
to visit it.
It will be yours.
(But if you'd send me a picture each year
I'd really appreciate it!)
and GOOD LUCK!
