I NEVER dreamed it would work! I have to admit Iâ€™ve been working on this invention a whole lot longer than I ever worked on any of the others. After all, it is a bit more complicatedâ€¦..itâ€™s TIME TRAVEL!! The entire time I was perfecting the lawn paint and the lawnblower, all the time I spent trying to fulfill the requests of my fellow JPGâ€™er, all the while I was sewing the various costumes Jimmy and I wore, I was working on time travel. I thought if I could just perfect it in time for Saturday shot #52, what a coup that would be. And of course throughout the course of the year, I wondered how I would implement the invention, should I indeed succeed. I thought about scooping up everyone who attended last yearâ€™s Nutball Party and plopping them all down in the yard for a mid-year extravaganza. I was all set to push the â€˜just do itâ€™ button, when I realized it would be a logistical nightmare. What if people were busy, out of town, working, or heaven forbidâ€”in the shower. Talk about the ultimate â€˜come as you areâ€™ party!! Then I considered the pick and choose method, but considering I have 885 contacts, there were bound to be hurt feelings. Or even worse, what if I chose someone who couldnâ€™t care less about my Saturday shenanigans and only added me as a contact out of pityâ€¦..AWKWARD!! So I threw caution to the windâ€¦.the wind threw it back at me, then it hit me------Iâ€™ll get the guy who started it all! So I activated the GPS (ginormous peeping seeker), set my phasers on stun, smacked the swash button (aka â€˜just do itâ€™) and hoped for the best.
And look what materialized before my very eyesâ€¦..the one, the only, the original Oregon Curly and his lovely wife, Joyce! (a special thank you goes out to the BGA (Big Guy Above) for having them fully clothed and NOT in the shower!!)
Iâ€™m pleased to note that although they hadnâ€™t fully materialized at the time of my shot, they filled out quite nicely within a few minutes, and we had a great reunion. I also must address a concern that Iâ€™m sure more than a few of you hadâ€¦..you donâ€™t see the actual machine used to facilitate the time travel. I donâ€™t have the patent yet, and in this day and age, you canâ€™t be too careful!
Oh, and one final noteâ€¦..there was one slight glitch in the â€˜returnâ€™ feature of my machine, and I am now accepting any and all donations toward the purchase of 2 one-way tickets to Oregon. OC and Joyce say they love it here, but theyâ€™re continually clicking their heels together and mumbling something that sounds a lot like â€˜thereâ€™s no place like homeâ€™.
I hope everyone has enjoyed viewing and reading this series as much as Iâ€™ve enjoyed creating it! Thank you as always for your wonderful and often hilarious comments.
Thanks to Oregon Curly for the themeâ€¦same shot, same spot, every Saturday for a year.
