A Visitor


A visitor arrived today and took up residence on the leather couch in the store. She doesn't speak, and came with an injury she hides from sight behind her. Looks like she's a drinker!


Here, have a closer look. She would appear to have had quite a life, if the character in her face is any indication.


Although her glass is empty, she still waits for me to serve her. The note around her neck says:
I've done my share of partying,
It's time to take a rest.
Unless someone adopts me now,
I think it's for the best.

My friend, Sherry, pulled her from a dumpster and brought her here for a new hand. Looks like a dog may have decided to remove her other hand. Several times today I have been startled by her seated there in the store. Asked if I could help her once.

I wouldn't want to glimpse her in the dark!

Fun! But I wouldn't want to see her sitting in my kitchen. On the other hand, I have a new monkey friend.

I knew some southern artists who made these dolls and sold them. I'm glad this one was rescued!

Ha-ha! I first pulled up your blog on my I-phone's small screen. Immediately I thought, one of those crazy campers aggravating her!

My students used to make a life size scarecrow for the classroom or hall, and I can't tell you how many times I scared myself silly. Loved this!
