#96...Christie's It Ain't!

OK y'all, it is time for the 100th post giveaway update. This is post 96 so we are on the countdown. If you have left a comment on the 3 previous posts, then you know you're name has been put in the champagne bucket each time. Remember, no comment, no surprise. The entertainment is in place thanks to Helen Louise. I've selected my escorts and my mannequin to represent me. I'm hoping y'all have done the same. I've had a few inquiries as to whether Cat Daddy would be available that night. I just don't know if just one of you can handle such a man as this.
He THOUGHT he was going to bring Martina but I let him know otherwise, I mean I suggested she might be busy performing that night. All the other ladies he had on his list just didn't measure up to the high standards I expected for his date. After all, we are talking about The Cat Daddy of all cat daddies.
Now girls, I've always said you can't steal my man, but I will give him to you. But due to the high demand, I'm reconsidering my position. Why should I give away the milk when I can sell the bull? (Is that how it goes?) Cat Daddy loves a lot of things including his family, Jakie the dog, and me. But I do believe the thing he loves most of all is a good auction. Heck, his favorite song is "The Auctioneer" by Leroy Van Dyke. What does that tell you? He loves the excitement of bidding and outbidding. He loves the frito chili pies. He loves the sound of the gavel hitting wood and the call of "Sold"! This, my friends, is his mating call.
So here's what I propose to do. In the comments section you can leave a bid for Cat Daddy. You don't have to....but if you want him for the evening, you are going to have to pay for him. Feel free to leave other comments(after all it adds your name to the bucket one more time) just no cat fights over him. Keep it clean. No hitting below the bra line, no hair pulling and no scratching. Oh and for goodness sake, no begging. I am open to bribery, trades and IOU's.
For those of you just tuning in and are not familiar with Cat Daddy and I, here's a chance to kind of get caught up in our world. I'm also listing my favorite Cat Daddy posts. If you don't want to bid on C.D., perhaps you'd like to vote on your favorite post. Feel free to mention one that I didn't.
Here are my favorites in no particular order:
3. Forget My Two Front Teeth and Voila (Please be sure and read these two together)
If you are new to my blog I hope you enjoying reading these and maybe decide you want to come back as a regular visitor. I sure would love to have you stop by anytime.
So in the words of Mr. Van Dyke "Hey, well alright sir, open the gate and let 'em out and walk 'em boys. Here we come with lot number 29 in, What'd ya gonna give?"

Hey girl I'm so glad to be back! You know I think I am on post 96 as well, guess I'd better be thinking up something for a prize!
Can't wait until Texas time!

time-worn interiors said...

Oh yeah, I forgot, I got my own Cat Daddy! (Craigiepoo) So I won't be bidding on your prize!

You know I'm on a limited budget..so I'll have to pass on the chance to have The Most Bestest Date ever! Love your blog header BTW!

Have a wonderful evening my friend!

The White Trash Delux post was cool (or hot, I guess!). RJNJ and his best friend went to that speedway many times while we lived in Texas! My fave photo is that one with CD by those crazy tutus or whatever they are! He's so in touch with his feminine side!

Primitiques 'n Poetry said...

I'm saving up for Warrenton, so, I can't begin to afford Cat Daddy. But, I can tell you that my absolutely, favorite CD blog of all time is your anniversary post. It was one of the first I ever read, and it just screams of wisdom and experience! ~Mindy

Frippery said...

I love CD giving the thumbs up in the race car. Since I have my own sweet thing at home I really wouldn't feel right trying to bid for your prize too although he does have that big old teddy bear look I just love in a man. Plus I don't think I have the deep pocket book to place the winning bid. Hugs, Pam

Frippery said...

OK Debbie I forgot to say I LOVE the Schrafft's header. I am addicted to vintage photos and post cards that evoke the feeling of times gone by. I often think I was born 20 or 30 years too late. (Course that would put me at 70 or 80 now so maybe not so much) You can't have everything.

Cher said...

Do we have to bid in American dollars? I think the Chinese yen is worth more right now. Heckfire, even the peso is worth more.

David said...

After reading the anniversary post, I'm tempted to bid on Cat Daddy myself! Because I figure he would be worth more to me that to any of you girls if only he would share his secrets for keeping a woman so much in love for 35 years. Kudos, Cat Daddy!

Garden Antqs Vintage said...

No bids for Cat Daddy, now that just aint right. I'm placing my bid, but he must wear the tutu and when I win I will automatically give my price to my favorite Talking Trash girl of all time, besides...I can't handle two dates seeing I've already asked (I mean stolen) hunka hunka burning love #2 (see my previous comment on your other post for who I asked to borrow, ok steal)!! Woo Hoo!! :-)

THE VERANDA said...

Ok Ladies -- if the bidding seems to be getting a little too high for Cat Daddy, maybe we all need to pool our resources and share him. Being that he is 'The Cat Daddy of all cat daddies', I'm sure he can handle us all! And after seeing that photo of him with all his petticoats, maybe he will loan us some to wear to the party...

Moonlight Hollow Musings said...

What is wrong with all these women? I have a man too, but what kind of woman can't handle two? No, don't answer that!

I am placing a pretty high bid...a big old bowl of my Frito Chili Pie...because I make the best FCP in the whole state! Promise!

Shannon @ Silver Trappings said...

I just re-read your list of Cat Daddy posts. My favorite is "Forget My Two Front Teeth." Hilarious!

My favorite part of this post is still - "And the last couple of weeks, I have been especially good at not telling her she has icicles in her hair, glitter on her teeth and a Christmas bow stuck to her butt."

I'm still laughing. And I hope he got his Christmas wish, because he certainly deserved it.

misselaineous said...

Hey Deb...you are just crackin' me up this morning! Can't bid on the CD 'cause I've got my own, but the post about the 2 front teeth & the hangdown just had me LMAO in front of the computer this AM!! so...I'm here on your countdown to 100... cannot wait to see what you'll have on that one!!! Have a great day. *elaine*

ludmil said...

trash talk said...

OK Ladies, I got a frito chili pie bid-do I hear nachos, who'll bid nachos? (BTW, did I mention he's housebroken and does not scratch himself in public and dances?) Tn'T

Zita - Mlle Magpie said...

Well I only have Canadian dollars, so I'm just not going to be very competitive I guess. But I do love that photo of Cat Daddy with all those gorgeous crinolines!

Susan S. said...

Well Cat Daddy is certainly the MAC DADDY of ALL CATS! I'm not worthy to be his date....after all you ditch Ms. McBride....I COULD never complete!

Love his pic with the purty lil' dresses....he looks GOOD in color!

Are you gonna be at Urban Market?

Moonlight Hollow Musings said...

Malisa, I do believe you are the only one capable of handling him AND Lurch!!!

I will accept paypal, canadian, euros, pesos, whatever. I have no pride.

THE VERANDA said...

Ok, I believe the last bid was a bowl of frito pie, plate of chocolate chip cookies and peach cobbler. I'll add a 6-pack of longnecks!
