Ebay Monday

Our road trip to the Cape was a great success! We picked the perfect time to leave and made it in just over 4 hours! The New England Pest Control Bug is always exciting to see as he is our favorite landmark and lets us know we only have about 75 minutes until we get to Na Na and Monka's! (pic by pdxsurrel on flickr) We had Paul's Pizza for dinner and DQ for dessert - YUM!




Now for ebay Monday! Remember these? Village Lip Lickers!! They are the lip smackers that came in the sliding tin. I really loved the ones that had the 2 strips of lip balm in them like the lemon lime and cherry coke! These go for SERIOUS money on ebay... I knew I should have saved those!

I always wanted that lip balm, but my said it wasn't sanitary. She also wouldn't let me have a candy necklace because she felt it wasn't right to eat something you wore around your neck. I couldn't have kool aid either because if it stained carpet like that, just imagine what it would do to my stomach. Apparently I'm the only human in the world with a carpet lined stomach. Who knew?

Just found your blog! That's an impressive photo of the big blue bug considering you were probably motoring along at 65+ MPH. Have you ever caught him at the holidays with his Rudolph nose and antlers? It's quite a site!

isn't the bug a great pic? Not taken by me though, borrowed it from flickr :) Photography and driving definitely won't mix for me! I have to exit onto 195 right there :D
