Dear Santa, Bring Me Some Gas

12-06-2017

Out of gas and out of time….

As I was getting dressed for the pre-Christmas party she had planned, She decided we needed yet another tree to let all the guests decorate. Cute idea, but the timeliness of her idea left a little to be desired. So, I hopped in the truck and headed to the wooded area out back to find a suitable tree for her grand scheme. It didn’t take long to find what I wanted and a quick cut and it was in the back of the truck headed home… Easy peasy, right? Long story short, I ran out of gas. She’s on her way with the spare 5 gallon tank, but she isn’t happy….

Seeing Red… and White

Today’s holiday look is the White Shirt with Tie and Gray Slacks from Wilson’s Designs. This outfit can be yours for just 1L on the Dear Santa Hunt. If you don’t fee like hunting, you can just purchase the gift near the hunt sign for 25L. This hunt runs all month long. Don’t miss it!

Harvest Home

Harvest Home

Taking in the crops…

It’s that time of year again where the local farmers are out in the fields picking corn and cutting beans (Yes, you have to say that correctly around here or you get a funny look). Pumpkin picking and apple orchards are also a “thing”.  I do love this time of year, but dread the oncoming winter that some parts of the continent are already experiencing.

Work Wear…

I found my farm attire at Waffles as part of the Vintage Hunt, now taking place. The Retro Blue Shirt and Pants Combo with Braces will give you that farm fresh look and the price was right at just 1L, just like all the gifts on the hunt. I need to get back to work as we are still making hay while the sun shines…

A Little Birdie Told Me

A little birdie told me

It’s a beautiful morning…

…at least in Second Life. It’s a bit overcast and rainy in my neck of the woods. While checking on the horses this morning, I stopped for a rest on one of my hay carts and a little bird flew down and kept me company on my respite….

Fully enMESHed…

I’m acclimating to my new look very easily. I really thought it would be more traumatic than it has been (ok… trying the demos WAS a bit traumatic). But now that I have been fully enmeshed, I want you show you a FREE hunt gift from the enMESHed Into Spring 2017 Hunt. I found the blue egg hunt item at Fearsum and won the 2 Tone Sweater as a prize. Since I was feeling lucky, I stopped by BHB and tapped a few of their FREE, no group to join, Midinght Mania Boards and woke up this morning to a new pair of Dempsey Boots. These boots are perfect for my morning chores or a night out for line dancing. (like she’d EVER go line dancing, just sayin‘). And ladies, these boots are unisex so try to win a pair for yourself.

My little friend is telling me it’s time to get back to work. Later, ya’ll.

Precious Things

Precious Things

Fragile Cargo

There is no better way to spend Sunday morning than out in the yard enjoying some much needed springlike weather. Although spring doesn’t officially arrive until tomorrow morning, I think it’s finally getting the upper hand on old man winter. She must have bought some eggs to hatch, I heard  mention of her wanting a few chickens (really, what’s a few more animals at this point?) And it looks like the they have hatched.
Today’s outfit is something I would actually spend my lazy weekend in. The Batcar Casual T-shirt and Lord Cargo Shorts are the latest group gifts from Angel DELUXE. I picked them up when I got the Adventurer Outfit [HERE]. The shirt comes in sizes S-L and I did have to adjust my bulky arms to get it to fit. The shorts come in sizes S-L and two fitmesh sizes as well. You also get a mesh belt to hold up your drawers. The Angel DELUXE group has a $10L joining fee, but after that all the gifts are free.

Somebunny loves chicks….Precious Things 1

My cute new friends are the March group gift from Dixie Dandelion The box with chicks and a bunny titled Are You My Mommy? was almost too cute for this dude to show, but the ladies insisted I show off my “softer” side. Also included in the gift is the Bunny Crossing sign. Both the Dixie Dandelion group and the gifts are FREE. You can find this gift in the group notices. Damn, this thing is cute!

Last Gasp

Last Gasp

To the last, I grapple with thee;
From Hell’s heart, I stab at thee;
For hate’s sake, I spit my last breath at thee.
– Herman Melville
(and this year’s winter)

I’m just so over you….

With the first day of calendar spring just a few short days away, one would think that the sun would be shining, the birds singing and flowers beginning to rise from the ground….
Nope, I was hit with a late winter surprise this week. I’m ready for short sleeves shirts and shorts, but it isn’t happening anytime soon, at least according to the weather report.
Today’s look was hard to find. Everyone is thinking spring and I had to fall back into winter. I remembered seeing a past group gift at Costarlos still out and decided to grab it before spring is here to stay. The Red Jacket with Shirt and Tie was a FREE Christmas gift to members that is still available and was very fitting for today. And I am still wearing the Black Pants, part of the $1L The Best of You Hunt gift from Wilson’s Designs.

Moving forward…

I’m so hoping that this is the final burst of winter. But at least it allowed me to show you some group gifts from Yack. By joining the group for FREE, you can pick up both the Waze Hat and the Zurich Scarf. Each comes with its own texture HUD to match your outfit. While at Yack, I also grabbed the FREE Basic Line Sunglasses. They come in three colors, black, blue and gold to keep the snow glare off your eyes.
Say goodbye winter. Don’t let the door hit you in the snowdrift. 😁

The Best Of You

Snapshot_016

 Like watching paint dry…

Sitting here waiting for my jeep to dry out (yeah, it’s still very soggy) is like watching paint dry. I’ve been trying to keep myself busy around the man cave tinkering on projects. I’ve taken a hiatus from the whole mesh head thing (let’s not go there).  I also went out on a hunt to occupy my time.  I made a few stops on The Best of You Hunt and put together an outfit that I can knock around the garage in. At AmAzInNg CrEaTiOnS I came across the Open Front Standing Collar Shirt. I found the Straight Fit Black Men’s Jeans at Dixie Designs and at Lady Dragon’s Design I scored the GreenFlo Shit Kickers. All the hunt gifts on The Best of You Hunt are $1L each.  Oh and if you are thinking about nosing around my man cave, just remember, Chomper is always on duty….

Swamped

Swamped

Yup, it’s stuck…

… I said as I surveyed the results of her joy ride. I have no idea what possessed her to take my jeep out for a spin… she doesn’t even know how to drive a stick shift! I walked around the Jeep, making sure there was no damage. I looked inside the cab and a smirk crossed my face as I began chanting to myself… “I am patient and understanding” over and over. At least she had the foresight to throw a cooler of beers in the back. So I grabbed one out, popped the cap, sat down on the front bumper and took a long, long drink. And she’s just standing there… I know she’s waiting for me to explode, or cry, or… something.

I’m hoping I don’t get my new group gift outfit dirty I just picked up from R2A  Creations . The FREE March gift to members is the Rider Tee, Black Jeans, Red Shoes and Snapback bruh Cap. The jeans and t-shirt come in the following sizes:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Mesh Sizes XS-XL
  • Kid and Baby Sizes

So how did I get unstuck? I climbed in the driver’s seat and motioned for her to get in. After she was safely strapped in. I fired the ol’ girl up (not her, the Jeep), kissed her on the nose, (her, not the Jeep) and dropped it into four-wheel drive. I guess she forgot to do that when she took off on her adventure…

Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word

The Walk

Sorry For the Stupid Things…

I can be a Grade A #1 jerk. I’m reminded of that every time I mess up… which is often. But it takes a strong woman to deal with my childlike childish behavior. She’s forgiven me for the whole New Year’s Eve fiasco. Now I have to be on my best behavior (and learn to keep my mouth closed). I am starting out the new year with a new attitude… She’s always right! (we’ll see how long that lasts  🤔) And I’m starting off the year in a new group gift from insomnia. The Men’s Long Shirt is FREE to group member and the group is FREE to join. This shirt comes with many choices, styles dependent on size, and comes tuck and untucked. I’m also wearing the $10L Distressed Work Jeans by Dark Water Designs as part of the Wash Cart Sale. The last day of the sale is January 4th so get it before it’s all packed up.

Walking the Walk and Talking the Talk…

She’s forgiven me and it’s time to kiss and make up, and time for me to start keeping my word. So we are going to walk upstairs and “talk” about it.  Walking is one of the FREE group gifts at RK Poses. There are several group gift poses to grab, but I suggest you have a look around at both the couples and singles poses. You won’t be disappointed. and speaking of not being disappointed… Hey! did you just grab my…. 😍
