Fernando!!!

Sometimes you will see the darndest things at garage sales…  now understand I NEVER go to garage sales – as a rule, I just do not need to add to my already pretty large pile of STUFF, but this particular weekend, I was left alone with 2 babies and my 11 year old and well, I probably should not be left alone, because I knew my husband would be so excited to come home to a large metal sculpture in my yard…  Well at first glance no such luck, because the guy wanted $500.00 and while I thought Fernando was pretty awesome, $500.00 would not make him all that funny, so we sadly left and went home.  After much thought, my 11 year old REALLY wanted Fernando (we named him – because after all how could you not name such greatness) so we went back, but they were gone already, however, we could see Fernando was still there.  The next morning bright and early Morgan (my 11 year old) took it upon herself to walk down to this garage sale man and ask him if he would take $100.00 for Fernando – he reluctantly agreed and well heck,  now how could we pass that up -right???    blogger-image-1643718213

So my neighbor helped us get Fernando home – he must weigh more than I do, so getting him in the truck and out of the truck was not simple so thank you Bob my awesome neighbor, my husband will so love it!!!  Anyways here he is in his new home!!! in all his glory…blogger-image--1378036122

Now I am sad to say the reaction I was anticipating from my husband was sadly someone disappointing.  We hid out in the office so we could see him pull up from his nice long weekend away.and he shook his head and walked in the house and said nothing 😦   Perhaps, his love of Fernando will grow in time…he just needs some more time…
