You ain't got no alibi



Meet the newest addition to our home: Butt Ugly (we just call him Ugly for short). He's one of my Christmas presents.

The poor little guy is just pitiful. My mom has had him at her house for awhile (a garage sale find). I tend to fall in love with really, really strange stuff - the things that others might find repulsive. I've been fawning over Ugly for months (I gave him the name, by the way). She has been keeping him inside. I assumed it was so that no one would steal him. Apparently they were afraid he'd frighten small children.

So, Christmas morning we go over to my parents. Mom makes the announcement - he's all mine! I've now got him out front to greet guests ...

... which is strange, because no one has stopped by in days?!?

I do believe you have what many consider a piece of art and pay a good amount of money for... Is it made by Yard Birds? If so, that is quite a find! They are made in Kentucky and sell very well all over the US. I know this because I am from KY and am now living in California where I still see them being sold.

You should hold on to it!

Just my two cents...

Enjoy!
