My Groovy Cooler

Hey, hey campers!  How's everyone doing this weekend?  Good I hope.  Thanks for dropping by for another Story.

I've got something really, really groovy to show you today. Several weeks ago, Momma Sharon went to Camping World and bought something for me.  If you look at the box, it doesn't look so special.  Ho hum.....a beverage dispenser.

But once she pulled it out of the box and assembled all the parts, I got really excited!

Can you believe it?  It's lime green!  I could hardly contain myself and just when I thought it couldn't get any better, she opened up a package of stickers that she found at A.C. Moore.....far out!!

You won't believe what happened next!!  She peeled off those stickers and created the most fantastic water cooler EVER!

I can't wait to hit the road again and show off my groovy water dispenser.  My Momma just loves stuff from the '60's and so do I. She really knows how to make me happy!

It's T@B Time

Well aren't I the sneaky one?!  Three Stories in three days thanks to Momma Sharon's obsession with the Olympics.

Yesterday I mentioned that she's kinda right-brained and really likes to make stuff.  About five years ago, she went through a T@B-clock-making phase and was cranking out orange, yellow, red, black, and blue ones left and right.  For a while, she took them to rallies and even sold a few.

I always thought they were really cool.  Would you like to see some?

Blue "Freedom To Roam"

Yellow "Freedom To Roam"

Red "Travel"


"Red Retro"

"Are We Almost There?"

"Orange Krush"

"On The Road Again"

I personally think she should make some more...what do you think?

If I can grab some more computer time tomorrow, I'll share another Story with you, so drop in if you can!

Pretty As A Picture

Woohoo...two Stories in two days!  Thanks for coming back around for another SplashT@B Story.....I really appreciate it.

My Camper Mom is exceptionally right-brained.  Translated, that means she loves to create stuff.  She never gets tired of taking my picture and lately she's been using an app on her iPad called "Pencil Sketch HD" to make me look extra classy and unique!

Here I am camping recently at Spruce Pine Campground...

And here I am again camping at New River State Park...

I'm sure that she'll be making more this week and I'll get her to give me a few more to post.  Maybe she'll do some of my best buddies too.  I guess you'll just have to come back again to see if you are here!

Have a good week everyone!  SplashT@B over and out.

I Got A Present, I Got A Present!!

Greetings from my little T@Bport on this first Sunday evening in August!  I hope you have had a great weekend in your part of the world.....and if you spent it camping, I hope you are safely back home.

I have one photo I want to share with you tonight.  So while Momma Sharon is engrossed in the London Olympics, I'm stealing the laptop for a short SplashT@B Story.

A week or so ago, she ordered something for me that she knew I would immediately love.....a handmade potholder that looks just like me......lime green and white!  It arrived last week while she was at the beach, so I didn't get to see it until she got home on Saturday.

Wanna see what it looks like?  Here you go...

Isn't that just so stinkin' cute?!?!

I think something else came in the mail just before she left for the beach, but I'm not sure.  I guess you'll just have to check back by to see.  Plus, she's been turning some photos of me into pencil sketches.  I'll share those with you one day this week too.

Well, that's all I wanted to tell you.  Thanks for checking to see if there were any new SplashT@B Stories and I'll see you later on this week.
