2 days to go: Another great giggle
If you have been following the blogs for the countdown to Reed’s Run, then you probably joined me in some giggles on 24 days to go: Where are they now? https://kandynolesstevens.com/2012/09/06/24-days-to-go-where-are-they-now/
In that blog I shared about my sense of humor when it comes to quirky auction items. I haven’t heard from “Bullhorns” but “Chainsaw Beaver” is alive and well, settled into his new home with some Boy Scouts. Sunday, we were treated to lunch at the Pizza Ranch, and I almost sprayed my Coke across the table when I looked up and saw – you guessed it – bullhorns above the table. It wasn’t THE “Bullhorns”, but it did make me giggle.
Along with “Neon Sign”, we have a very unique and beautiful donation this year from the Garvin Nursery. The donation was 5 evergreen trees, ready to be planted at someone’s home, business, or wherever they so desire. I will interject that I did discover that Huck, Andy, Lulu, and Hiccup (all canines) had been writing another blog regarding these trees. https://kandynolesstevens.com/2012/09/03/27-days-to-go-who-let-the-dogs-out/ I will state that their writing will NEVER see the light of day. The content was offensive to my sensibilities . . . as it was somewhere akin to “A Tree Stands in Brooklyn” humor from Looney Tunes.
Anyways, the 5 evergreens currently stand proudly on my front deck. Their placement has risen more than a few eyebrows of friends as they have come over recently. So much so, that I began to refer to them in song as in the 12 Days of Christmas, but instead of “5 golden rings”, I belt out, “5 Evergreens”!
Of course as with any good joke in this family, we couldn’t leave well enough alone. Just like my love of animal prints and bling-y accessories, we had to embellish the “5 Evergreens” with an entire song about Reed’s Run. If only we hadn’t run out of time, we could have made a music video. Instead of a music video, perhaps our “Huck-y saves the Day” commercial will have to suffice.
Either way, we hope you enjoy our song lyrics and our commercial. Trust us, we had more than a few chuckles ourselves. You never know what we will come up with next!
