good and plenty

a few weeks ago i found a board game that i didn't know existed.

the choo-choo charlie game. 
 i remember the commercial you can see it on youtube. i have had many boxes of good and plenty in my day but i never knew there was a game.  

magpie ethel just posted her great collection of board games, so i thought i would post my latest find.  my collection is nowhere near hers, maybe a total of 3 - candy land, the barbie game and now choo choo charlie.  i am having a hard time finding anyone that has heard of choo choo charlie.  maybe it was a west coast thing?

a box of good and plenty candy was not only a great candy but an interactive one also.  we use to shake the box back and forth to make the "choo choo" sound and then when it was empty you could make the sound of the train whistle by blowing thru the empty box.  
below are the other characters, but i am having a hard time finding their names.

poor pup, needs a box of good and plenty.

farm chicks someday

look what came in the mail.  a few weeks ago serena posted on her blog - the farm chicks  if you send your address to her she will send you a postcard about this years show. i mentioned i wanted to get there someday : )

the day i got it i showed it to rick and said since we can't make it this year we should go next and he agreed.  
only thing is he thought it was in wisconsin.  
oops, no backing out now. 
 guess someday is next year.

a little birdy told me today is the 1st day of spring.
i don't believe it.....
 the ground is covered with snow and the high today was 20 degrees.


a couple days ago i was driving in the country and all of a sudden i smelled a common smell associated with summer - skunk.  
funny thing was i was transformed to summer so it wasn't all bad.
sort of. 
getting desperate.
