Is Your Mama a Llama?

Or an Alpaca? This is Big Bear, down on the farm recently. BB's aunt, out Southwestern Wisconsin Way, plans to sell the Alpaca fiber from the 10 critters she owns to be made into yarn for soft, plush winter sweaters. Playing along with Candid Carrie today, and thought this was the perfect addition to her Friday Foto Fiesta Finish!

I'd also like to say "Yay!" today for Nik, over at Exceptional Voyage, who is our Bloggy Winner, selected by Random Drawing, in the Great New Pop'rs Giveaway! Nik wins Two Pop'rs Flavors of Her Choice! Uncle Lynn wanted me to remind you all that Pop'rs are only available online--they're not in stores yet! And, they come in eight delicious flavors: Buffalo, Butter, Chocolate, Colorbust, Cinnamon, Raspberry, Strawberry and Taco.

So, Nik, please e-mail me with your info, so Uncle Lynn can get those Pop'rs in the mail to you right away! And, everyone, listen up! Tomorrow, we announce our the Giveaway's Grand Prize Winner--so come back to see me tomorrow, and we'll have a little Bloggy Celebration!

Ok - I have to know more. What "fiber"? Do you shear an Alpaca like you do a sheep or what?

Now I'm going to have to do a Google and find out the difference between an Alpaca and a Llama.

Hi there Veggie Mom!!! Staci here from Oklahoma! Just wanted to say I'm sorry for taking so long to say thanks for stopping by my BATW spotlight day! I'm not sure if my Sooners will be the "undoing" or not of your Tigers. I do know it will be one good game! It's so fun isn't it! Your Chase Daniel might beat out our Sam Bradford...they are both GREAT QB's! Whoever wins will be well deserved! I say GO BIG 12! And yes, to answer your question...Debbie is so great! Wouldn't have met all these wonderful people like yourself without her hookin' us up :) Hope you have a great weekend!
