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!

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!

to pick up where i left off…..
BeCAUSE there was no time for rest, we decided we had no option but to: a) adhere to mom’s torturous, inhumane, just-let-us-die, homeopathic ALfaLFA-therapy regime, b) pull ourselves up by our bootstraps, and c) GeT to WoRK.
the tents went up…
thE port-A-PottY rolled in…
BuT first…JeRRY and the guys attach and secure the OFFiCiAL trailer-cam before we go…
annnnd then we made it back to the LanD o’ GypSYViLLE to get ready for our BiGGO GaLACTiC JuNK-A-PaLOOZA….
JuST like a GypSY…
AnD here’s one of our new tee designs…SaVE the PLaNET! it’s the OnLy one with CoRNBREAD!
and oh-how-much we looooove the ‘moonlight-on-the-tent’ shots. there’s just something magical and peaceful and beautiful about this moment…the fruits of your labor, chandeliers glowing, tent decorated, under the canopy of a striped tent…all nestled safely under the TeXAS sky. twas the night before….
stay tuned!!! JuNK-A-PaLOOZA pics headed yer way!
