Gun Control, Party, Winners

~ it's freezing cold! ~
GUN's already started!

There was a bit of confusion at the sporting goods store yesterday. 
I was standing at the counter, prepared to pay for my bullets and shells when the clerk said, "Strip down, facing me."

I stared at her, while making a mental note to contact my Senator and NRA reps to complain about the gun control whacko's running amuck, then did just as she instructed.

When the hysterical shrieking and alarms finished clamoring, I found out she'd been referring to my credit card! I have been asked to shop elsewhere in the future which surprises me because she could have been just a tad clearer, don't you think? Besides, I don't think I looked all that bad!         ~ROTFLMFO!~
Nancy, A Rural Journal, and Lisa, Two Bears Farm, are hosting their first Valentine's Day Boost My Blog Party. It's going to be fun so visit Nancy or Lisa to sign up and, hopefully, win some nice prizes.

My winners for Vicki's Grow Your Blog Party are
~ number 44 - Charlsey in Texas
~number 41 - Bernadett in Serbia
~number 33 - liniecat
~number 36 - Kathy H
~number 18 - Buttons in Canada
which is crazy because I used and those numbers don't look all that random. Then again, what do I know? -grin-

For My Saturday winners...the little pink hat, it's NanaNor and the pink headband it's Debbie Jones. No one wanted the size extra large yellow headband...any takers?

In sadness...Leontien passed away on 10 January 13, obit here, and is in a far better place of peace and gentleness. I first learned about her while I was covered up in grieving for Dave and, frankly, was overwhelmed by the thought of more grief and sadness. I didn't blog about her but did tuck her into prayer; please, remember her family.

  25. Funny ! Wish there had still been openings for the blog party, but when I finally had time to check in ,it was posted as closed. But you know, family matters do not schedule themselves according to blogging schedules ( or any other kind of schedule for that matter). This has caused me to reflect & reconsider much of my blogging.That being said, i plan on your blog always being part of this experience. Thank-you Sandra.

  26. Very excited to have won. I will send you an email. Thanks so much.
