Years ago, Aunt Tudi found a mail order gag gift that she just had to have. She's holding it in the picture above. She asked me to get her, the Father Unit, and Uncle Michael one each, because she thought it was just hilarious. When it came in the mail, I took this picture of her, and photoshopped one gleaming tooth, adding the caption. I posted it here on LJ and on Facebook.
A lot of people here on the Cliffs got to know Aunt Tudi really well over the course of the nine years she was with me after I began blogging. Many of them became friends with me on Facebook as well. Facebook is where dydan contacted me to tell me she'd spotted Aunt Tudi on eBay. She gave me the link to the eBay listing, and the belly-laughing commenced! So I wrote to the person on eBay. Here's a screen cap of the note.
And would she have laughed? Most definitely.
This is proof positive that anyone can be a model, even middle-aged, eccentric, crazy-cat-lady level, Southern goofballs with a fetish for novelty items! Screw Kendall Jenner. Aunt Tudi is a star!
I just got permission to share the rest of the conversation as it stands now. If there's anymore in the future that I can share, I'll do more edits. I have to say, this has really made my day. :D
(I then sent him the link to the video, since I wasn't bright enough to include in the original response)
