Coming up for Air

Hello Stranger. I am alive and well, and am between parties at my house. Last weekend was the 5th Annual Roadkill Chili Cookoff, where I won 2nd place among 15 entries. Yee haw!

This husband and wife competed against each other and he, who places 1st or 2nd every year, placed 1st, while his wife took 3rd. It was a fun party with some really good chili!
Mindy takes 2nd place!
I imagine you'll hear more later, after David gets his pictures up. Here are the pictures I took of our day.

We were entertained by the vocal talents of Brittnee Lee. Click here and order your cd now. This young lady is going places!

I know, you are starving for junk, aren't you? Click here to see a few things I've picked up lately.

These lockers were sold before I even offloaded them. Aren't they a fun color?

And now, I am busy getting my home ready for the Clothes Swap. So far, we have 9 ladies coming and a couple have donated clothes, but can't come. I think this is going to be a fun adventure!

I hope all is well with you. Catch you later, alligator!



  1. Glad you had a good time at your Chili Cook Off! I've been to the Terlingua Chili Cook Off so guess I will have to put Poetry on the calendar for next year!:) I LOVE those lockers!


  2. i don't know...kinda suspicious that you hosted the party and took second place! stinks...or is that the road kill? glad it was a success! btw, i heart those lockers!

  3. I know a good time was had by all! Love those lockers!

  4. Looks like some pretty great clothes. The lockers are awesome and congrats on the chili cook-off!!! Is it a top-secret recipe? I guess it should be since you have this contest going on. You have a year to tweak it, so you can win first. ;-)

    Glad you're having fun!

  5. Are we supposed to be breathing too? I don't have time for that AND work!
    Love the lockers!

  6. For shame, for shame, coming between a husband a wife...


    Great job, I think you oughta post your prize winning recipe for us!

    LOVE those lockers!


  7. And I missed it. I'm STILL slappin' my mama. Oh wait, I'm STILL slappin' the skeeters!!!

    I don't know about those lockers... there sure is a lot of locker love....

    Congratulations on 2nd!!!!! Looks like fun was had by all!!!

    :-D robelyn

  8. MALisa, y'all are invited out any time!

    Janet, living in the country has its advantages. More roadkill variety!

    Pam, it was a blast!

    FringeGirl, the recipe is top secret. I need to tweak it though to beat Mr. 1st place!

    Debbie, breath whenever you can. Whew! I got wind of your show coming up. Can't wait to see what magic y'all come up with!

    Anne, if it were a one time contest, I might consider doing that. But, it's an anuual contest! I can't give my recipe away!

    Robelyn, I'd offer you some chili, but, after 4 days of eating it, I'm almost out. See you Saturday!

    As for the lockers, talk to Miss red.neck Chic herself. She scored, didn't she? ~Mindy

  9. Congrats on 2nd place! Robelyn sure did score...lucky girl!

  10. Did you win a big prize or would it have come from you? I think you need another vacation -- you've been working waaaaay too hard. Cool lockers!!!! Have a great weekend. Jan

  11. Adrienne, thank ya! I can't wait to see you in a couple weeks!

    Jan, you are correct. Vacation with David and his family is 4th of July. I'll be ready! ~Mindy
