As the rebellious bloggers that we are, we don't usually do blog hop thingies, but we recently lost a good blogging friend of ours, Tina Downey, a friendly, funny, local blogger pal of ours who left behind her young family way too soon. In her memory, we wanted to join our other bloggers in Sunflowers For Tina, a blog hop in which you plant a sunflower (her favorite flower) in her honor and take a picture of it.
Well, our sunflowers haven't opened yet, and their posture looks reminiscent of our own after a heavy night of drinking, which doesn't make for a very flattering picture, so we had to look elsewhere. And as things would have it, almost everything sunflower-related is currently sold out at the store, a true testament to Tina's awesome popularity. So for today, we posed with the very last sunflower-related item we could find, and we hope this will suffice.
Tina loved our sense of humor, just as we loved hers, so we hope at least our self deprecating comics can make up for our lousy green thumbs.
Tina - you were an awesome friend, you left us the most amazing comments, and you had a killer taste in beer. This Fat Tire we're cracking at way too early in the morning is for you.
