Howdy! Thanks for the compliment on the rat.
They were at a chain store actually called 99 Cents Only Stores based out of California. They are a chain with stores pretty much only in the Southwest.
However, I know here in the Northeast, Halloween City (affiliated with Party City?) had the same rat, but I think it was $6.99.
Not "a cow's tail", I said "THE cow's tail"...it's a southern saying, meaning you are last, last, last.....you know...the last thing through the barn door is the cow's tail? I grew up hearing that term.
What's kickin chicken? How was your summer? I finally got the last of my kids back to their respective colleges. We had to make another trip back to Nashville last weekend for my sons birthday. He's an uber shy kid so he doesn't really have much of a social network. The thought of him alone on his birthday was more than I could handle, so the hubby and I went up (gluten free cake in tow) and took him to dinner. It was a nice weekend. But now I guess it's time to start this years Halloween build.
