Pickle Ballerina

This is Pickle Ballerina.

Pickle Ballerina

She is Tucker's favorite toy.

He goes nutzoid, totally frenzied when I waggle her shapely, pale pinkish ballerina legs in his face. She has a green cotton body and a pale pink nylon tutu and she's about 10 inches long.

Nana gave Pickle Ballerina to Tucker's Uncle Bubba 16 years ago. Pickle Ballerina is one tough broad who has out-lived half of us.

I can tell Tuck to go get Pickle Ballerina and he will search for her for hours until he finds her. The Bubba was the same way.

Never doubt the power of Pickle Ballerina.

I love ballerinas! Have a collection - but no pickles....
She is simply adorable - hope the wee ferocious one doesn't chomp off a shapely pickle-ballerina leg!

I can see the attraction.

We bought some cat toys recently. The best one is a kind of fuzzy green worm with eyes at one end. It has been kicked, dragged, thrown, shaken, eviscerated, groomed, and laid down on.

I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site name is American Legends and the URL is:

If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.

Okay, peoples, I can't seem to find Pickle Ballerina -- whatever that is -- but the fur face is at Miss Sher-EEE's who gets paid more per day towatch the little beast than I do to watch this old ghost trap of a house.

I think you must be a SPAMMER.

However, if you want to get together some night, email me at

Dear Laura,
I too have met the giant fuzzy green worm.

BE AFRAID. Be VERY afraid.

(just like me if The Flaurella reads this stuff!!!!!)
