Snowflakes for Robert’s Snow: Day Four

DSCN1819 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four

We’re nearing the end folks. Today is Day Four on the final auction for the Robert’s Snow snowflakes and it looks like . . .

DSCN1254 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four

What on earth are you wearing????

DSCN1815 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four

I am wearing a wig. It’s like reporter Lois Lane, so it’s cool.

DSCN1254 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four

No no no no no! I said no to the hat so I’m saying no to the wig to.

DSCN1816 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four

Be that as it may, YOU do not get a vote, Fuseman.

DSCN1818 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four

Phhhhhhhhhhhhhhhht!

DSCN1254 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four

(grumbles) There’s gotta be a rule against this somewhere.

DSCN1833 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four

And on we go! Well, there are just TONS of surprises since we last reported in. Already . . .

DSCN1254 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four

It’s not like I haven’t better stuff to do anyway

DSCN1827 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four

I’m sorry, what were you saying?

DSCN1254 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four

I was saying that it looks like we’ve a big winner today, that’s what.

DSCN1836 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four

Darn tootin’ you were.  Yes in a suprise upset it looks like as of 7:32 p.m. last night the top snowflake money-wise is Skippyjon "Snow Flake" Jones by Judy Schachner at $1,225!

DSCN1254 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four

Do you think this has anything to do with Ms. Obama reading the Skippyjon book the other day?

DSCN1828 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four
Hard to tell. Lady Bountiful by Vladimir Shpitalnik did a leap heavenward and hit a mighty $1,000 today as well. And circle dance is at $1,050 and counting.  Do you think this is a result of people bidding against one another?

DSCN1254 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four

Dunno, Bets. The bids don’t climb steadily but seem to make gigantic strides forward. It’s very odd.

DSCN1837 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four
I’ll say. Do you think we have an influence over any of this?

DSCN1254 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four

Nope. At least not so long as you wear dead crows on your head.

DSCN1254 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four

Anyone you’re hoping gets more bids?

DSCN1813 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four
Well, I’ve a soft spot in my heart for Carin Berger.  She’s one of those artists that’s up-and-coming in the children’s literary world and her A Snowy Celebration deserves some lovin’. Once her picture book The Little Yellow Leaf comes out next fall, I think she’ll finally get her spotlight.

DSCN1254 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four

Anyone else?

DSCN1823 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four
Well, how baffling is it that the gorgeous To Be Like the Sun by Margaret Chodos-Irvine remains so low? It certainly cheers ME up when I see it.

DSCN1254 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four

Know what cheers me up?

DSCN1832 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four
No, and I don’t care.

DSCN1254 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four

Aw.C’mon.

DSCN1821 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four
That’s all the time we have today, folks! We’ll be back tomorrow for our final coverage as the clock ticks down to the last possible bids.

DSCN1254 Snowflakes for Roberts Snow: Day Four

Not even fair.

    Fuse is crazy – the wig is awesome, Lois.

  2. Miss Erin says:

    This rocks. GREAT expressions. :)

    I love the wig. One more day!!

  4. david e says:

    Fuse, you need to get yourself a LOT of wigs! Maybe something in a neon bouffant or a curly blond mane…

  5. Fuse #8 says:

    Don’t tempt me. With my eyebrows I probably couldn’t pull off a blond, but there’s a sweet little auburn number I’ve been ah-hankering to try. At the very least I’m going to try to spice up that picture that accompanies every post I do. Give people a shock when they meet me in person and expect an entirely different head o’ hair.

  6. david e says:

    I wouldn’t worry about the ‘brow match situation. I’m from California originally, cuff and collars rarely match.

Speak Your Mind
