Waaaaaay back earlier this year I saw a cute little planter on our friend Mick's blog and blatantly requested that he give it to me.
Shyster that he is, he offered to TRADE it for the cute little swastika planter he'd seen on my blog. Okey dokey, done deal, so I immediately shipped off my planter. And waited. And waited. And waited. Turns out that he was going to give me my planter at the grand bash he'd planned for friends and bloggers in June that I was totally planning on attending with hubs and doggie.
Long story short--we closed on La Condo exactly on the day before the party and since not even my leadfooted husband could make it from the Florida Gulf Coast to the wilds of northern Texas in time, I had to send my last minute regrets and apparently missed an incredible event. Waaaaah.
OK--that was June. Guess what I just got in the mail? Yeah, dear Mick was a bit slow (what with being in the hospital and being a major musical comedy star, etc.) but certainly finessed himself by sending not only the planter but ANOTHER darling planter AND a sweet note AND photos AND a DVD of his starring role in "Pirates of Penzance"! I love you, you lil red-headed Texas cutie!
The little black planter looks like a plant or urn stand and I love it! And I not only got the "PofP" DVD but it's the official Press Night video. I'm going to take it to the beach and watch it whilst quaffing a flagon of demon rum, pip pip and cheerio. Or a bottle of wine, whichever comes first . . .
Not only did I miss the June event but he wanted me to know I missed the End 'o Summer event as well. Here's part of Mick's harem and a friend (who I at first thought was Mick) in a cool hat. Those kids have too much fun, y'all!
I'm just so darn lucky to have met so many wonderful people through blogging. Thanks to each and every one of you!!!!!
