Chew Tobacca....Chew Tobacca....Chew Tobacca...Spit... : )

Yes...those are the lines from the New...Blake Shelton Song...
'Boys 'Round Here'...
It's not on Playlist....but...I posted it on FB....
I gotta tell ya...
I must have heard it....a 100 times....
as the Ford and I bounced....down the Dusty Iowa Back Roads...
By the time I heard it...for the 99th...time...
I nearly stopped...and picked up a can...of Chew...: )
It was a Craaaaazy...day..... and...the Load... was...nothing like what...I had...imagined.... when I left home....
by...a Long...Shot....
My day started out... by finding...the roof had leaked in my shop....
I had to be on the road..to pick up...the Gnarly Old Cupboard....
but...had to pull rugs up.... first...
{I also...discovered...our Washer...had been running all night...and the laundry room...was full...of water...: ) }
Then...a Pal popped in...she bought some things..I had on the Ford...so...that was Great!
but...I was running...late....
I got to Iowa City... and picked up...the AMAZING...Old...Cupboard... and a darling...Shelving piece....
Then.... I had to run...up North... to get a Store Counter....
I thought I'd call some of my Shop Owner Friends... that were on my route...from South...to North... to see if they had anything...I needed....
As I was flying down the Hi Way.... Chatting Away....
{Chew Tobacca...Chew Tobacca...Chew Tobbaca....spit....: ) }
I missed my turn... : )
So... went to an Old Friends...Shop...that was a bit...: ) out of my way...: )
I was Blown Away...by His Shop!!!!
He....told me...of another...
I went....
and bought...some...more... Gnarliness...
Then...the Proprietor...at that Store...
Told...me of Yet...another..Place....
: )
a Great....Place!
oh my...
It was a Great...Day...Gathering...
{I'll be posting about these...AWESOME Places.... after I get back...from Gold Rush!}
Then...I popped in... and visited with Alice....
MORE...Gnarliness!
I had a Mountain...of a Load....
Dry Sink...Piled...on top..of the Old Gnarly..Cupboard....
A Big Colonnade...Flankin'...That...!
Shelves...and Stands...
oh...my...
and...time was slippin'... past...
Yep...I was doing a lot...of...
'Chew Tobacca....Chew Tobacca...Chew Tobacca...spit...: )'
When I finally...arrived at my Northern...Destination...a Girl...was interested...in the Counter...I was to take...on Consignment....
I told her...
"You had better...Buy It...Girl...
She won't...be coming...Home...: ) "
She did...
Smart Girl....: )
I bought...More...Gnarliness....
but...then...I Sold ...and Traded...half...of my Gnarliness... for...
other...Gnarliness...
We unloaded...and reloaded the entire...Ford!
I was dripping with....Sweat...
Chew Tobacca...Chew Tobacca...Chew Tobacca....spit....
oh my...
I was supposed to deliver...a Load.... when I got home...
but...I was an hour...from there...
and frankly....whipped...
So...I'll be doing that...this morn...after I unload....
Then...I have to Load...the Big Truck... I'm pulling out...in the Morn....
for Gold Rush!
My Friend...I did all the Swappin' with...and I...went for an Ice Cold...Drink...and Supper....
while doing so....
The phone rang...
it was John...
Scout...had Escaped....
Fence...was Down!
oh my...
I was an Hour away...
Between... John...and Liz...they got everything...handled...
but..I gotta tell ya...
It was a MESS!
Chew Tobacca...Chew Tobacca...Chew Tobacca...spit....: )
I'm Off...and Running...Today!
It's gonna be a Long...Day!
A Long...Several...Days!
Love to Ya!

A Fun....Load of Gnarliness....to Add...to The Load!
I'm picking up...a Load...of Concrete Statuary...{Big Stuff} tonight...to put on the End...of the Big Truck....
Have No...Idea...how I'm going to get...the Truck....unloaded...and booth set...alone...
But...
I
Will...
: )
It's gonna...be...Interesting...: )
This...is a Tall...Old Gal...I traded for...{I don't have the Heart....to show ya...what..'was'...on the Load...}
Chew Tobacca...Chew Tobacca...Chew Tobacca....spit...
I captured this image... on  my ride Home...
oh my....
I heard the song...lyrics...in my head....
"Up...Up...and Away...in My Beautiful...Balloon"....
naw...
I'm Bouncin' down the road....
Chew Tobacca....Chew Tobacca...Chew Tobacca....
spit....

Barbara, I am going to come over in the near future, introduce you to a clock, and teach you how to read it so you can learn that a day off is 24 hours and includes doing nothing! Your day or two off this week have exausted me! Please please ask for help in MN so you don't do your neck in again! God be with you.
