Friday Show & Tell

Pam Asberry * Dacula, GA

Gutsy Smurf
I hadn't heard about the new Smurfs movie, but I practically jumped up and down when I found out that McDonalds had Smurfs Happy Meals on the menu. I was finishing college when the original Smurfs cartoon debuted so I have no idea why I have a childish attachment to these little blue creatures, but I do. It didn't take long for me to find an excuse to head to my nearest McDonalds and order a Cheeseburger Happy Meal; I squealed with delight when I found Gutsy Smurf inside, much to the amusement of the young woman who sold it to me. All I know about Gutsy is that he is a new character for the 2011 movie, apparently Scottish and "brave to a fault." I like his attitude.

"Hi Margie!" "Hi Alice!" "What's the story morning glory?" "What's the word hummingbird?"

Do you remember when you were a young teenager and could not get enough of chattering on the phone? When I was in my early teens, we still had corded phones. We had one phone that had an extra long cord which could reach from our family room into my mom’s room, and I would squirrel myself away for hours in a tiny corner by her bed in an attempt to have semi-private conversations with my best friends. Clearly, my daughter (see above) is much more advanced… both in technology and in the timing of the phone-junky epoch of her evolution as a girl. 
(1. That's an iPhone in her hand. 2. She is on a real call, with a real person at the other end.)

Lindy Chaffin Start - Decatur, GA

My bookshelf!
I will NEVER let go! My dream of becoming a  pubbed novelist will be realized! (Insert vision of me dressed as Mel Gibson in Braveheart here, sturdily planted in saddle, spear in hand, with blue paint on my face.) This will be my bookshelf at my local Indie bookstore, Eagle Eye Books in Decatur and, as you can see, I will only be a couple of authors to the right of Haywood Smith which puts me in good company! Looking forward to seeing you Saturday, Haywood, at our Georgia Romance Writers meeting.

Well done, ladies! Love your caption, Megan; love your vision, Lindy. Isn't Show & Tell fun? ;-)

Noelle Pierce said...

Pam, me too!!! Do you happen to remember the California Raisin figurines from a different fast food joint? I had all of those, and I have my entire family buying Happy Meals so I can get a full set of the Smurfs (okay, two sets, because Thing 1 wants them, too). :D

Pam Asberry said...

I *DO* remember the California Raisin figurines, Noelle! LOL! Good luck getting two sets of the Smurfs; most of the McDonalds we stopped at during a trip to southern Illinois a couple of weekends ago were out of most of them. I was disappointed, because I really wanted Smurfette, too! Oh, well...

Julee J. Adams said...

Love show and tell, ladies. Thanks.

Pam Asberry said...

Thanks for visiting, Julee!

Tami Brothers said...

Love these! You guys are great. I really enjoy coming back each Friday to see what new picture you each show.

I LOVE the Gutsy Smurf, Pam. Can't wait to see the movie either.

Too cute, Megan! She is adorable.

LOVE the idea of finding your spot on the shelf, Lindy. GREAT motivating idea!
