Fleet Farm! Friday

This is where I tell you about finding the most magnificent emporium of oddities on earth, and you go "Yeah, yeah, I've seen it all before....".

You are a hardened bunch.

When, exactly, did you all get so jaded?

So cold?

Speaking of cold...

When I think of cold, I think of winter. And when I think of winter - rather than thinking of the rain and the grey and S.A.D. and the marrow-chilling dampness that has now been my climate for the last half of my life - I get all nostalgic and gushy and think about snow.

And when I think about snow, I think of that sound.

That scrunching and scraping of my dear sainted mother shovelling the walks. Scrunch, scrape, stop. Scrunch, scrape, stop. (the stopping was when she whipped the Kleenex out of her pocket to wipe her drippy nose). How I wish she would have had the luxury of the not-yet-invented snowblower. Lady coulda rocked that technology something fierce.

But now, not only does the snow blower exist - a boon to some, a loathesome noise machine to others -thanks to the awesomeness also known as Fleet Farm, there also exists this fabulous accessory to go with it. Behold!

The Universal Freakin' Snowcab.

It is so many exciting things in one, it has so much magnificent potential, I can only right now share a partial list with you :

It's a Cab.

It's an Oxygen Tent.

It's a "Let's Pretend We're in a Super-Submarine Under the Sea" toy.

It's a Pope Mobile.

And the thing I love the bestest of all about it?

The instructions:
"Assembles in minutes - with basic tools"

And, just like I am convinced that - thanks to off-shore manufacturing- there was an obvious punctuation error in the Duck!!!! Blind, I am also certain that the Universal Snowcab box should say "by" instead of "with".

Oh, you silly store - you are an endless source of amusement...

Fleet Farm!!!

Happy Friday, everyone.

If we ever get enough snow to warrant a snowblower I will be moving to a warmer climate. Right now I am still OK with the snowshoes that go with my shovel and the sleeve I wipe my nose on!
Which BTW I will using tomorrow. GAH!

Well, the basic tools are only good for the Universal Snowcab. The Universal Freakin' Snowcab requires something sturdier, more rugged, heartier, with lots of endurance.

What are we talking about again?

wv: koxica. I believe I've answered my own question.

OMG, I went to a Fleet Farm outside of Milwaukee. I freakin' LOVED that place. Wish they had 'em here in the Mid-Atlantic.

Countess NNG: Be careful what you talk about - the weather gods hear all!!

Countess CBW: You slay me, woman.

Countess of the Broth: So awesome.
Maybe even better than the Liberace Museum...
