THE AGING POTATO.....For Beth

I found this potato in the bin and dressed it up a bit.   The other picture is after he became old.

Even old taters get hair growing in weird places... and I thought my chin hairs were bad!!! That is so funny, Clara! Thanks for making me smile this morning.

Oh, you are so clever - I love him ! Did you give him a name ?!

Clara....in TN said...

Lynda, His name is "Cold Tater"....as in "Take an ole cold tater and wait."

Lola, I chose the second picture as the old one because he is "wrinkled and squishy."

This is just precious!! Actually, he sort of resembles my late uncle Oscar! Really!!! You sure did a good job of making a man out of him.

Beth said...

Hee, hee...I LOVE him, Clara! You made me laugh out loud. And great minds run together---I've got a little spud also, on a previous post (with his mama, Mrs. Potato Head). But I think yours is funnier! :-)

Saw your comment on Grammy's site and saw that you were from TN, so I thought I'd stop and say "Hi!".

That's one funny tater. If you're gonna play with your food you might as well get creative and a bit personal.

I'll have to start keeping up with you ET folks. I'm out here in L.A. and get a might homesick at times (moved here from Maryville in 1991).

Catch you later
