we quietly kicked off JuNK-A-PaLOOZA FriDAY morning by cranking up the siren & lights on our 1939 InTERNAtionAL FiRETRUCK & dropping the velvet rope between the Fu DOGS..while ArCHIE and NAte (an innocent victim volunteer) donned life-size wings and top hats and handed out tickets for the JuNKtaSTICAL giveaways!
they came from near. they came from far (18 hours!).
they came. they saw. they got the tee shirt
(did we mention el cheapo souvenir tees??!!).
we saw old friends…
and made new ones…
WaHOO SuE and her deAR hubby made an appearance in this rockin’ ride! we tricked it out JG style…with one of our neW HiPPie HiGHWay VeLVET steering wheel covers
& a ’well-behaved women rarely make history’ BuMpER stiCKER!
FRoM boots to pies to DiNG-DoNGS…the giveaways were a BLaST!
the film crew got the inside scoop…
MoTORCyCLERS rolled in like the RoCKSTARS that they are…
OvER 40 in number…their exhaust pipes rumbled, their black leather fringe drifted gently in the hot summer air, THey. ARe. So…..CooL.
we worked. we danced. we JuNK-A-PaLOOZa’d!

YeSTErDAY amiE shocked herself not once but twice, I sandEd the floor once twice 3 TiMES, DaD reworked the salvaged CirCUS WHeeL bar top more times than we want to admit & JaNIE was STiLL wishin for a CoRONA.
we’ve channeled LeGENDARy TeXAS baRS, BLoWN the EleCTRiCiTY and had deliveries of LuckenBACH souvenirs, OLd DIXiE ChiCKEN wood, & HoMEMadE DING-DoNGS. 4 DaYS left…the SaGA continues…
yeS, it really took that many steps…(or maybe it just seemed like it…i’m not sure anymore….maybe i’m delirious from the paint fumes…)
If Lovin’ you is WroNG, i don’t wanna be right…
MeanWHiLE we cosmically channeled LeGENDary TeXAS bars all day. we started off our morning with a visit from the girLS of the DiXIE chiCKEN who brought us a little piece of hiSTORY for the AiRSTREAM…
ThEN…we had a special delivery from the MaILmAN…
which i have decided was DesTINY channeled directly from my cosmic vibes since i just happened to be sportin my LUckENBACH tee yesterday!
AND the day just kept getting beTTER! because then a little angel named PaTRICIA showed up with a little piece of heaven in to-go boxes filled with soul food and HoMeMADE desserts! deeeee-licious homebakED breads, chicken spaghetti, tortilla soup, and hellllloooo cookies, kolaches and HomEMADE ding-dongs courtesy of MeLiSSA & ThE BAKE ShoPPE all the way from CyPrESS, TeXAS!
We’RE movin in the furniture, hangin the HoMEmaDE curTAINS, and fillin’ our BeLLIES with good grub!
