Have You Seen This Toy?


Yes, it's a real toy.  Read through some of the customer reviews for a chuckle . . . or not.  

Soon they'll be making preschool toys where the little characters have duct tape, rolls of plastic sheeting, and gas masks in case of terrorist attack. 

Sheesh.  What a world. 

I spent yesterday at LeTourneau University--spoke at lunch to a group of education students and teachers, then did a Q&A with some folks.  Then had a real treat--Dr. Kathy Stephens took me to a local Chick-fil-A (did I spell that right?) where we held an in-store book-signing and I signed books with the COW!  :-)  It was a lot of fun, and we took pictures.  I'll have to post some as soon as I get copies.  Met some really wonderful folks, including Leslie, one of our blog friends!  

Clyde, I stepped outside and waved to you.  Did you see me?  :-)  

Am flying home today (Saturday) and looking forward . . . to doing the laundry.  

P.S.  Don't forget the showing tonight of "The Note" and "The Note 2" on the Hallmark channel.  Hope you can catch it!

lol I read some of the reviews, but not all 48 of them. You're right, and I am laughing!

I will be watching tonight. :-)

Ah - that bright flash of light on the horizon was you! Of Course! =) My daughter and I are looking forward to our Note Marathon tonight. Elaborate plans are in the making. Clyde

Angela said...

Sounds like fun--a "Note" superbowl tonight! Hint: the one thing you'll need is a box of tissues. :-)

Enjoy!

I wish we had cable :(
I guess I will have to get the DVD's. We are not ready for the Feburary 17 change over. We bought the converter box and a new antenna, but it didn't help. Maybe after DH gets a job we'll get the cheapest cable package.
Right now we are watching a lot of DVD's from the library. I'm watching Season four of "Emergency" trying to find the episode that my mother-in law's house was used.

That toy is...amazing?

Btw, it's LeTourneau. (Sorry! I'm a LU graduate!)

I'm also Belinda Hartung's niece (Kathy's friend who joined you guys for dinner Friday night). When she told me, I was a little jealous, since I've been reading your books since I was, oh, 10 years old? :P

Glad you got to visit with Kathy and Co.! They're amazing people. :)

Aw, I wish I had known! My niece, Lydia, goes to LaTourneau.

You look good, Angie! How are you feeling?

Angela said...

Feeling pretty good, if a little tired. And since I got home, I've been sneezing nonstop. My nose has to get used to my dogs again. :-)

A-choo!

It was so cool to see you in Longview! I had to giggle at the Chick-fil-A employee (manager?) who was grilling you with questions. I really hope he checks out The Immortal! :)
