Weekly Words Challenge 42!

The words for this week were Raw and Finished.

How did you interpret them?

Beach Rednecks In The Raw


Now It's Finished



On The Note:

Dear Cleaning Lady,
I wish I knew your name. Please give this small gift to your daughter. Although she apparently caused some mischief in my coworker's office, she only left me cute little notes. The mystery of those notes kept me entertained for days. They added a temporary amusement to what is normally a rather boring day. I'm sure you can relate. So thank her for me, and thank you too for all that you do.


It's a package of Tinkerbell sticky notes I found at the mall yesterday for $2.99! Tell me that's not kismet. The package was gone when I came in this morning.

Raindrops

Age

Beauty

A purple bag full of Tink stickers? Dang, that's sweet.
Listen, btw, the reason this header works so well, as I am sure Hoop would agree, is that you have VERY expressive eyes. Full of mystery and mischief, perhaps?
My pics are up!

I love the sticker book and your note - I can't wait to hear if you get a response. You made some little kid very happy!

I love the raindrop photo - I *think* I can see you reflected?

lovins!

I bet I can go up to the lake and find a couple of rednecks that look just like your two rednecks! LOL

Your handwriting on that note is very neat. I would have had to type the note on the computer and print it out for it to be readable.

After reading Fiwa's comment and I had to go back and see if I could see your reflection in that raindrop too. And I can! OMG your naked! LOL ... Okay, maybe it's not that clear. But, I can use my imagination, right? ;-)

I'm sure the cleaning lady's daughter will love the Tinkerbell sticky notes!

I almost thought it was my son but he doesn't have that much meat on his bones.

OK, I know it sounds sappy, but the way you handled the cleaning "crew" really touched me! It's those damn random acts of kindness that can make such a big difference in one's life!

 
At 01 July, 2008, Blogger Karen said...

Awww, Tink you're gonna be a great mommy someday. That is so sweet that you left the girl a gift. And you know that just made her mom's day!

Ours are up.

Love the pictures. And the beach rednecks. Holy crap! There is so much to see in that photograph. Wow.

I LOVE the whole cleaning lady story. It's just precious.

Mine are up!

Whoa - rednecks at the beach...

The unibrow kidney is scaring me. Who thinks of that sort of thing?!

 
At 01 July, 2008, Blogger mrspao said...

Awwww - your note is so sweet.

 
At 01 July, 2008, Blogger Reb said...

Love the raindrop photo! So cool of you to find the sticky notes for the kid. (did you get a package for yourself?)

Mine are up.

This is a story that little girl will be telling all her life, how she met a friend she doesn't know.

Hey! maybe she should start a blog. :)

 
At 01 July, 2008, Blogger Knight said...

Holy crap, I KNOW that Kidney!

That was really sweet of you to write a nice note to the mom. Hopefully she gave the stickers to the kid and didn't keep them for herself. Yep, that is why I don't parent anything.

That was so incredibly sweet of you, Tink. Your whole cleaning lady story has the feel of fairies to it--a little mischief, little gifts...I love it.

I wonder how many beers it takes before wearing boots with your swimsuit seems like an awesome idea? LOL

 
At 01 July, 2008, Blogger Aunt Jackie said...

That's cute about Rednecks in the raw lol. I love the raindrops at the end (bonus). The notes are a neat idea too.

Great ones this week!

I'm up over at my place...

Hope everyone is well! BTW: I think the new header ROCKS!!! I want one like that now. I must get into my evil laboratory and get started.

 
At 01 July, 2008, Blogger Chatty said...

I love the rednecks in the raw - perfect title for that shot! And the whole idea of the mystery notes/mystery child is wonderful. Beautiful raindrops, too. And WTF etsy was particularly riveting today. The rattling hare was distressing enough, but clouds that barf rainbows and a stuffed kidney? Truly special. I mean, I can understand that the kidney enjoys watching football and filtering blood, but golfing? Now THAT, I would pay to see. I wonder if Tiger Woods knows...
My pictures are up, too - you wanted to see pictures of the double squash I found Tink, so don't say I didn't warn you!

You did a wonderful thing by giving the cleaning lady that gift. Wonderful!

Mischief, hmmm? What kind?

 
At 01 July, 2008, Blogger Janet said...

Oh, that was the coolest story about the cleaning lady and her little girl!

On the off chance that's you and your man in the redneck picture, I will refrain from saying anything ;-)

Yippee!!! Etsy's back!

Mine's up:

Well, I am so glad you did that! What fun for the little girl, also. She will feel like she has an important friend and very special for it.
You are very thoughtful!

I LOVE that you left that little package for the cleaning lady's daughter. You are a true kindred spirit.

I'm raising my fist and saying, "One of these days." Looks like so much fun.

Yes, and so nice of you to give the post-its. Fun being randomly kind.

 
At 03 July, 2008, Blogger Maggie said...

As a mom, I can tell you that your note most surely warmed the cleaning lady's heart. And as a kid in adult's clothing, the stickers are super cool!

You're such a sweet little saint.
