Giveaway....And Round Top

I am having a giveaway, but hurry & sign up! Leave me a comment about one of your funniest moments. I am going to giveaway several items, some came from my trip to Round Top flea market. Lisa & I had a blast! I am giving away a small travel case with tons of zipper slots for all kinds of goodies to be stashed, a cute hanging frame that you could put your own photo in (this came from Round Top) it is made out of fabric, a Lucy post card, 2 valentine post cards, 3 wooden spools, a vintage hankie (from Round Top), a tag with 5 paper covered clothes pins, small pack of kleenex, and a note pad with pen. If you put a link on your blog back to this site I will enter your name twice for the giveaway. Good Luck to everyone.

And now here are some photos of me & Lisa at Round Top the biggest flea market in Texas. Of course one of our most favorite places to visit was the Junk Gypsies. They had some really cool jewelry & neat T-shirts.

And we couldn't resist taking our photo in front of their cute pink truck. The first photo is of Lisa.
And this photo is of me!
Lisa again.
Me again.
There was miles & miles of tents with all kinds of stuff, new stuff, old stuff, vintage stuff, antiques, you name it, it was there! Boy were we tired friday night. We got there Friday around 9am & didn't leave until around 4:30 or 5PM. Then on Saturday, Lisa went with her daughter Meagan & grandbaby Katrina & I went with my daughter Dusty. We had so much fun. We are already planning our next trip in April.
Don't forget to sign up for the giveaway. Hugs to you all ***Renea

Ooohhhh....one of my funniest moments. Gosh, that is so hard. I have had alot of laughs over the years, but can't quite think of the "funniest". But here goes ...

Once, my best girlfriend and her kids were over for a daytime "bonfire". It was summer and we were all barefoot. Well, the wind began to blow and embers were flying everywhere. Unfortunately, the fire started to get out of control and actually caught some of the neighbors brush on fire. My girlfriend began to scream --- "quick, somebody stomp it out!" Well, the kids and I looked down at our feet and knew that we couldn't do it because we were all barefoot. Then we looked over at my girlfriends feet and she was wearing her sneakers --- but she still kept screaming at us to stomp out the fire. Well, as I surveyed the scene, I began to laugh hysterically ... because the one person who had the means to put out the fire, was frantically seeking someone else to do it. I was laughing so hard that I couldn't get the words out to tell her that SHE needed to do it. Well, she had no idea why I was laughing, and was getting frustrated. Which made it even funnier --- I laughed so hard that I began to wet myself ... so I ran into the house as fast as I could to try to make it to the bathroom. Meanwhile, the fire is still raging. My husband saw me run into the house so he went to check what was going on. When he saw the fire, he quickly ran to stomp it out. And my friend was miffed that I had run out on her. When I came back to the scene, I told her why I thought it was so funny ... and she began to crack up laughing too as she looked around at all our bare feet and noticed that she was the only one wearing shoes --- yet she was the one screaming for us to put the fire out.

Perhaps you had to be there to find it funny - but it was one of the greatest laughs I've ever had --- even in the face of danger :)

Glad you enjoyed your "junkin"!

hmmmm my funniest moment, well i have had a lot, if you mean embarassaing moment for my but funny for others then here goes:
i was in fourth grade pretty big kid you'd think old enough at least not to have "accidents" but oh no no no age apperantly did not stop my bladder from going all wonky on me. i was in front of the WHOLE class :( and i was about to present a project, earlier i had asked my teacher if i could go to the restroom she told me something along the lines of "no just wait until after you finish presenting your project" so good kid that i was/am i didn't say anything and just waited even though i really really really had to go. as i was beginning to talk about my project(i don't actually remember what it was something about a paper bag and a bunny i dunno long time ago)i got really nervous especially since there was a guy in that class that i had a crush on, then i knew i just knew i wasn't going to be able to hold it in any longer and so guess what happened? yup i, a 4th grader, peed on myself. it was so horrible!!! no one actually laughed at me, maybe in their minds, but not out loud thank goodness, either way that didn't stop me from being EXTREMELY embarrassed i even remember making up some really lame lie saying that i had spilled some juice i had put in my pocket, it was so awful...you can go on and laugh i think it's pretty funny myself : )

Here's my funny. One summer day I went out to run a bunch of errands. All morning long everyone I saw had a big smile for me. I went through a couple of drive throughs and stopped at a zillion lights. Everybody I looked at busted out a giant smile for me. I would just smile back and think, "wow, what an awesome day! Everyone is so friendly today." Finally I got to my last stop, Home Depot. As I was walking in I reached up to take off my sunglasses and much to my horror I had lost one of the lenses! All morning long I had been toolin' around town, talking to people at drive throughs with one lense in and one lense out! I about died!!! I put those sunglasses in my treasure box to remind me that laughter is the best medicine!

My funniest moment might not be so funny but it could be,it depends on how you look at it.
One time a few years ago,I was invited to a wonderful party but you had to wear white.All I had were these tight white pants and a white t shirt.Well, you could not wear any underwear in these pants because they were so tight and I didn't own a thong so I just went without underwear. The party was wonderful and everyone was dancing and I was showing off my sweet moves when all of the sudden I tripped over someones foot and fell in the splits which caused me to split my pants front and back. Ohh God!!! I didn't think anyone had seen and it was dark on the dance floor so I made a quick exit to the door but as I ran out I could hear someone say did you see that girl leaving?? She wasn't wearing any pants!!! I was sober but I am thankful everyone else was drunk.

Mannn, looks and sounds like ya'll had a great time.

Here's my funny:

My husband works for a prominent attorney in town, and he's constantly "throwing away" great stuff. My husband always brings the stuff home for us to go thru and we keep almost everything. I mean, there's perfect stuff like designer clothes, name brand kitchen items...nothing at all wrong!! So, in one of these throw aways, there was a Polo shirt that fit my son-in-law perfectly, so we gave it to him. About a year later, we all ran into the attorney...my son-in-law was wearing the shirt. When I introduced him to the attorney, he said, "Nice shirt. I used to have a shirt just like that". My son-in-law, quick on his feet said, "oh, man, you should have worn it...we could be twins!!"

Hi Renea! I'm glad you and Lisa had so much fun! I have a funny little story: my son Marlin was about 2 1/2 or 3 (still in a carseat) we were at a red light and he started screaming "a puppy, a puppy!" Well, being the animal lover I am I was going to rescue the puppy. I was saying where Marlin, where is the puppy and he just kept pointing at the window. He was in hysterics! Finally, I saw what it was - a prarie dog! It was so fat and almost as big as a puppy! I guess he'd never seen a prarie dog before :) I laughed so hard - it made my day! hee hee

I love the pictures! And oh dear, MY funniest moment? I am very un-funny. My oldest son has the most infectious laugh, any time he gets the giggles it always spreads to the rest of us -- and none of us know why we're laughing!

Last year, my friend made it on the show "American Gladiators." At one of the tapings, the "warm-up guy" was going around asking people to tell a joke or sing or anything to try to win a prize. I was with a group of friends, and I surprised even myself when I called the guy over, and flexing one arm at a time, said "This is Thunder. This is Lightning" (and then going into a muscle pose) "Don't get caught in the storm." Sadly, I don't have the arm muscles to back up that big talk and my friends were laughing hysterically behind me as I made a complete fool of myself.

Funniest moment - years ago it was my most mortifying moment, but now it's hysterical.

During high school, I was on crew for plays; backstage, artwork, that kind of thing.

On opening night, I had to lower part of a set using a rope, and I tripped, and swung about 15 feet out on to the stage, and fell in a very embarassing way by knocking over the lead actor. I was referred to as "Tarzan" for the next 2 years of high school, and now each reunion I get to relive the embarassment over again.
