Belated Birthday Giveaway/ 911 from last week

First of all, here is O. waiting calmly on the firemen to come to free her foot and leg from the grasp of a FP yellow school bus. Yes, I called 911, quit laughing, I hear you. It was really stuck. I was hurting her trying to get it out. I told the operator that it wasn't an emergency just a problem. I could have cut off the tights, greased her up and continued to try to get it off. I didn't want to upset her or hurt her. The firemen (2) worked together and got it off quickly. Lesson learned, Do not stick your foot and leg into a school bus just for the heck of it. Where was I......sitting close by unaware until she asked for help.

How about a little white framed chalkboard (that I got at the Rural Society Sale). What's that that O. is holding.
Here it is a little closer. It's an vintage bottle with a french envelope inside of it. (This came from the French Hen Barn Sale) What's in the plastic you ask. Just some sweet note pads from the Donovan Designs Sale. That is paint not blood on her little hands. We have been painting up a storm here lately.

A little closer picture of the chalk board. I really liked these when I saw them.

Now what do you have to do to win these little gifts. All you have to do is be a follower and leave a comment on this post. I will have the girlies draw a name next week. Good luck.

Now excuse me why I go look out the window for the exotic animals that are on the loose.
No kidding we are on alert. Some crazy man let 40 - 50 animals loose on his farm and then he took his life. We aren't in the county that they were turned loose but there has been sightings in our county. So sad for the animals.......grisslies, monkeys, wolves, lions, and etc. We are seriously being careful.

Good luck.

So you did buy one of those little chalkboards! They are really cute! As for the firemen coming to the rescue, don't kids do the darndest things?? Looks like the crisis is winding down....snow monkey with herpes B and one wolf on the loose! I guess I can walk out to my mailbox now!~Hugs, Patti

Not here for the drawing but wanted you to know I came by. Glad little O got her foot safely removed from the bus. Both the girls are adorable. I hope they find and catch all those animals I feel sorry for them too. Hugs

Gina said...

How is it that kids manage to do the craziest things? lol

I did get a laugh out of the animals on the run. Maybe I shouldn't have, but it struck me funny for some reason.

There's nothing like a little excitement--whether it's a safari roaming outside your window or some cute firemen freeing Cinderella's dainty foot!

Heather said...

I just saw on the news about the crazy zookeeper. That's pretty pun intended! You've had quite the exciting life lately. Don't kids do some of the most unusual things? Who would have thought to put their leg in a schoolbus? lol!

Isabelle Thornton said...

Oh that is so scary! I saw it in the news!
I would love to win! Count me in!
I am having a girl, but the party is for everything babies...I would love if you link the nursery post :)

Nan said...

I heard about the wild animals this is such a shame he was in trouble many times for abuse but it just went on. Why can't people like that be stopped? Well now he has stopped himself I guess you could say. We live with wolves, moose, and bears here and I haven't had to shoot one yet, and never will, but the city is no place for them poor things they are all doomed. On the foot in the school bus. That had me laughing about how kids think up the craziest things to do to keep us hopping!!

Julia said...

Wow, you are having an unusual week.
I'm glad that your granddaughter was freed so quickly.

I hope that the poor animals will be able to be rescued and that no one will be hurt. JB

Debby, what a fun post meeting Tickled Pink! So many super things, it would be hard not to want everything! I am so excited you have joined my tag swap. A definite reason for us to get together again! 20 tags to make, but I think they will be fun to display. Thank goodness they are small!
Again, thank you! Elizabeth

Grammy Goodwill said...

Oh, my. What an adventure to tell in later life. My foot was stuck in a bus and the firemen had to rescue me. hehehe Very sad end to those animals - that poor man must have had mental problems. Did I wish you a happy birthday earlier? Sure hope so of you'll never pick me for this great giveaway.

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Debby honey sorry you had to call 911 but I know you were afraid of hurting your darling.
Just loved your story you did for my site. Everyone loved you as I knew they would.
Great giveaway and a belated Happy Birthday.

E said...

Foot vs. FP bus is priceless ! Hope you took pics of the rescue for her to see later :) Happy belated Birthday ! E in TN

Jo said...

So sad abt the animals isn't it....oh my the predicaments kids get into!

NanaDiana said...

OMGosh- Can you believe O got stuck in a schoolbus? How funny to call the fire department to get it off! That is hysterical.

I saw that about the animals on the news this morning. That is so sad...all those animals roaming around and being put down for some stupid human's fault!

Listen- I love the giveaways but don't put my name in for them. Seriously, I have won so many things this year that I am feeling way too guilty! I hope someone wins that hasn't won anything yet! xo Diana

Anonymous said...

So this guy actually let loose WILD ANIMALS? Oh, dear!!!! That's crazy AND scary! Hope that wasn't reallllly close to you!

Oh, lovely give-a-way, Debby. SURE, put my name in the hat/jar/cup/bowl........I'd love to win!

Jan (where we have no wild animals running about)

Delena said...

That is too funny. My husband was a firefighter before he retired. He went on a call that involved a man dropping his car keys between step and his doorway. As he was trying to retrieve the keys his arm became stuck. The Fire Department was called and the fellow was more embarrassed than hurt. Love your giveaway!

Sue said...

Just saw the news- the only animal still missing is a monkey! Jack Hannah is getting involved now. Your story was funny when you told it to us last week. Any cute firemen? LOL When I fell and conked my head 2 years ago, I had 8 guys in my house tending to me. I was too looney to see what they looked like. My luck! I probably had the hunky calendar guys roaming through my house, turning off the stove and blowing out the candles! ha ha...
Put me in your give-away- I'd luv some goodies from FHF and RS.
The girlies look cute holding them. :-)

Suzie Sews At DOTTY RED said...

LOL 911 indeed, your a star, what a cutie, love those curls... always a pleasure to catch uo with you and your littlies....

Lesley said...

It's such a shame that so few animals were saved. We humans have a lot to answer for!
I am a follower and would love to take part in your giveaway.

Cindy said...

Okay I am cracking up...of course you called 911. I on the other hand...took my daughter (3) at the time to the emergency room...with her fat little thumb stuck in the handle of a big wheel. Picture 3 yr old sitting on big wheel and me carrying her your laughing!!! The DR'S all stood around trying to decide what to old..old nurse walked up and squirted baby oil on it..pushed her thump in further ..more oil and walla out it came..Then she said we aren't charging her for this are we?
Kelly doesn't remember any of this and I ddidn't take pictures...and yes she rode trike in the back seat to the hospital...this is when you didn't have to put your chldren in car

Glad no animals visited you!! It was so sad tho.

Cute gifts. Look soon for a special swap!!! hint..hint

Hugs Cindy from Rick-Rack and Gingham

Gina said...

I had to come back & comment again Debby. I feel bad that I got a chuckle out of the animals running around town yesterday. I read it in the paper this morning. What a truly sad story. Those poor animals! Not to mention, it really must have been scary for the neighbors.

Holly Lefevre said...

Poor out for big yellow buses...and feet! That is a super cute chalkboard - great find!

That is so sad about those very sad!

Debbie said...

Oh wow, Poor lil O and poor Debby!! Not sure what I would have done in that situation, but glad everyone is OK.
I also live in Ohio, but not as close to the escaped animals. I live in the Dayton area, not sure how far that is from you.
Thanks for the opportunity to win a gift, and Happy Belated Birthday!!!
How is your lil Izzy doing? Mine is 3 yrs old and weighs about 8 lbs. How about yours?

God Bless~
