Chickens in the Basement

I love to write and I love to laugh. When I write, I get to the point quick. My stories would fit on the back of a postcard. They usually make me chuckle. And you know what they say, "It's all about me!"

One of These Things is not Like the Other

Warning!!! Stupid Blogger is at it again!
Remember this song from Sesame Street?
"One of these things is not like the others

One of these things just doesn't belong

Can you tell which thing is not like the others

By the time I finish this blog."
Small change in the words by me!






I bought this box lot of flower frogs to add to my collection. I didn't look at them good until Auction Dave pointed out that one of them wasn't what I thought it was. Can you guess which one?

Since frogs are pretty much the same no matter which direction you look at them, I guess it's not too big of a deal that stupid blogger turned them sideways! This is the view of the frogs in their upright position.

And this is the back of the frogs. Yep, somebody was selling number 2 for 25 cents! I got all 5 for a dollar! BARGAIN!!

So which one do you think is not like the other and why? In a couple of days, I'll draw a name from all of the correct entries and the winner can choose which frog they would like for their own collection.

Well, there are several OBVIOUS answers which all lead to the (1) big one that's (2) see-through and (3) the holes show all the way to the bottom. And it's probably made out of glass unlike the others. But since I NEVER EVER get these right, I'll be off on this one, too. I have to tell you, for all the good things I got at my auction, you really got some interesting stuff at yours and yours was ALOT cheaper!

i think it is number three. It looks like the things my aunt Sis used to have under the feet of her furniture to keep the carpet from getting squished.

I'd say #1 just because it looks different. But I still don't know what a garden frog or whatever is?

OHH OHH OHHH!! Number 3!!! It's a furniture thingy! Did you see the neat one at the shop the other day???? It's a little baby one in the middle of a glass jar, and when I say little, I mean an inch across....very fun!

Ok, I am going with number 3. No 5 might be close, but I think no 3. I can't wait to find out!

Number three doesn't look right to me, which means I'm probably wrong, but there, I said it. Number three.

I have no idea -- Except maybe #1 is newer? (I'm just guessing here).
By the way, checked out the bloggers who are going on the trip and they seem really fun! I'll have to start reading their blogs to find out more about them.
Try to stay warm this weekend- Looks like it's going to be a cold one!
