Jug-A-Who?

by karen #1965 3rd grade teacher.well, i don't know exactly how to explain this...here goes...me and my daddy...which is also #1969's daddy...which we call BoBo...which we want to do a post on him..which we wanted to do on father's day...which now, we don't think we can wait until father's day...cause he does fun stuff that we want to share with you...anyway........back to the reason for the post..never mind that....side story... i wonder why we call it a post...i mean the word post...if you mix the letters up, you can get stop....or tops...or spot...the letters in post are real successful word in terms of alphabet usage...if alphabet usage ranks as important to anyone...if there is a such thing as alphabet usage...................end of side story...sorry...my mind is like this today..i have a friend that would give this statement an "AMEN!".............so anyway...i had this thought one day...i thought...hmmm...i wonder if me and BoBo could do a project together...and i saw what you see above...i paint the tin and put small tabs on each piece....he makes the pottery...and sticks the tabs in the place that the parts will eventually go...then, he fires the pottery...and when he is done firing, he sticks the tab in the pot and uses E6000 to glue it...and so...we called these things "Jug-A-Who?"....why?...cause each one we did represented a person....here is another view...
anyway...we made a bunch of these jokers...i mean...30 or so...they were a pain!..we packed them up and went to a show in columbus, georgia...at some festival by the river...that had rides for kiddies...so it basically was a show that made the city look like it was artsy...and they weren't artsy...they were ridesy...all they wanted to do was ride rides...not a fun time for the artists......ridesy is good...but not when you are trying to share and sell art with art appreciating people...ridesy is good at a fair...i mean here the artists are...and the ridesies come walking by and looking at you like you are a buncha fruit loops cause you paint......and you are looking at them like they are a buncha daredevils cause they ride.................anyway.......we did not sell a single Jug-A-Who?...not a one...all the other artists enjoyed looking and laughing...but they didn't think they were funny enough to take home and laugh at them...i guess they got all the laugh out when they looked at them at sitting on our nicely decorated table...probably only rated a 4.5 on the laugh meter (10 is the best)....i mean you only have so much laugh for each thing that makes you funny...you ever thought about it...side story...think about it...whenever you laugh at something, i mean you really could give it a rating on the laugh meter...like...this is another side story that i give a 10 on the laugh meter...me and #1969 and BoBo and the family went to st. george island on vacation...we always did...we rented a house...we all had the families..i mean we pack y'all...we even take the hermit crabs...3 trucks of stuff...at the beach for a week...so we get to the house we had rented for the week..BoBo goes up and opens up the door...we unload for 1 solid hour...sweat dripping..so...we start washing clothes when we get there because we had gotten soaked at a stop at some small aquarium on the way...i start cooking grits...the kids got the playstation connected...we were settling in...#1969 notices that the sheets are not on the beds...so #1969 calls the realty company...and #1969's husband goes outside and waits for mrs. realty lady...well she drives by...and pulls in at the house next door...and #1969's husband yells at her and asks her why she is over at that house...and mrs. realty lady yells back, "why are you at that house?"...mr. #1969's husband says, "this is our rental house."...mrs. realty lady yelled back, "no it is not.i don't know who's house that is and you better get out of there as quick as you can!"..........wow...classic BoBo move...he grabs the hermit crab cage and tells us to start moving next door...................can you say chevy chase?........yeah........so...how did that story rate on your laugh meter?....the house was not locked and when BoBo turned the door knob, it opened right up!...so he yelled, "come on in!".......

how about one more look at Jug-A-Who?....so who do you think it is???

  1. Karen- I LOL at this post...I remember my theme song that summer was ..."I LIKE TO MOVE IT MOVE IT" from the movie Madagascar, 2005! I moved my classroom, I moved beach houses and I moved into the the last house we built in Tally. Laugh-O-Meter was like 1000+ for me. I remember Mama spilling the box of cereal all down the stairs...poor p-nut butter Captain Crunch. Good Times...Chevy Chase Style and ALL!!!! For those of you who REALLY know our family...y'all know that Mr. O (1965's Hubby) and Mr. Left Brain (1969's Hubby) have learned to go with the flow with our Chevy Chase-Cochran Moments. I promise we could write a book about our experiences...from birth until now! HEE HEE HEE Lets not even mention how many tents we went through in one trip at that same beach...giggle giggle
