Happy Mix It Up Monday evening to you! Last weekend, we drove up to a conference in Atlanta for me to accept an award. I received the National Programming Advisor of the Year award from the Association for the Promotion of Campus Activities. I was totally shocked and quite honored! DH kept calling it my "major award" and wanted to know if I was going to get a leg lamp. Some of you will get that. The rest of you need to watch the movie The Christmas Story. :-) We love to take the back roads when we travel, much more interesting stuff to look at, and we found this guy in a junkyard in south Georgia. Blog friends, meet Mater! Mater, say hello to my blog friends! "Howdy, folks!"
For those of you who've seen the movie Cars, you know who Mater is. We are big Cars fans around here, and Mater is by far my favorite character in the movie. When I saw this guy, I was "happier than a tornado in a trailer park," as Mater would say, so we had to stop so I could photograph him. The girls said, "Look, Mama! Mater found his cover!" You see, in the movie, Mater has lost his hood, but whoever painted this fella captured Mater's eyes perfectly. The side of the truck reads "Tater's Towing," but I think it's been a while since this fella has towed anything. You can find him in my Etsy shop here. Now, I'm off for my Monday night Antiques Roadshow date with DH!
