They're Destined to be Car Salesmen...


As I write this, my boys are out in the front yard selling produce from their garden.

"Selling" involves walking up and down the sidewalk yelling "Produce for sale! Get your produce! First customer gets a free bouncy ball!"

Can you even believe that they haven't had one customer yet?!? I mean, who wouldn't want a free bouncy ball?





We do live in tiny town...so traffic is a little slow this time of day. However I'm sure the neighbors will be stopping by to shut them up show their support.


In the mean time, I have a to-do list a mile long.  First up:  Give Gus another bath.  It turns out, that Google (my source of information on any and everything) says that Hounds have a "distinct odor."  I can verify this to be true, it's distinctly smelly.

Bath time.  

Happy Thursday people, and if you'd be so kind, leave a comment and say hello.  Lately, I sorta feel like I'm just talking to myself...and I'm quite a bore.   Speak up and entertain me.

  4. I have a smelly dog that needs to be bathed right about now too! Too bad we don't live closer, or I'd send her on over! :)

  5. And that's why we don't have a dog or cat or pet of any kind, well that and my oldest is allergic.

    Happy Thursday!

  7. What kind of produce are they selling? I would love some home grown yummies at my house.

    I will pay them for their produce AND the shipping.

    Just let me know . . . I live in Illinois.

  10. Selling their produce is such a cute idea, probably less bees than lemonade too! I loved your post yesterday too, about looking inside. I have done that before, and I love how warm and cozy it looks from the outside looking in!

  13. My dog is not a hound, but she is intensely smelly. Every time I let outside she rolls in the dirt until it's all embedded in her hair and then she comes inside and streaks my white walls and ruins my floors. I have a full-time job cleaning up after her. You don't want another dog do you? I'll pay you to take her. :-)

  15. Girl tell me about it... I've started a new blog and have had, count em, zero comments on the past several posts. Boy that just makes my morale meter sink to a new low. Yuck.

    So now I'm sharing the comment love because I know how much (0 comments) sucks. :)

    So, your boys... they're so generous to throw in that bouncy ball. My Noah is trying to "collect" those things. He's probably buy some produce just to add another one to his jar. :)

  16. I've got a great recipe for lemon zucchini bread if they don't sell all the veggies first. :-)

  20. What your boys need are some rabbit costumes.

    When I was in high school, the little boy (about 5yo) across the street showed up on our doorstep one afternoon wearing a rabbit costume with a basket full of veggies from their garden. He introduced himself as The Health Rabbit. Would we like some vegetables?

    My mother COULD NOT resist.

    I think this time of year is slow for blogging. Plus, FB and Twitter take a bite, too.

  21. the boys need to talk to Autumn -- when she was their age, she had a very successful lemonade stand -- she made a lot of money in our old neighborhood. Of course, that was only until it distracted a car & motorcyle and caused a pretty major accident :(

  24. I want veggies!!! They could sell me anything, even tomatoes...and I hate tomatoes! :)

  25. I would gladly have helped the boys out since we are always looking for fresh veggies. I got tickled when I saw Gus since that is my employer's name.
