Over the weekend Buddy Budderson and Loopy attended a comic book and anime convention. If you know anything about these events, attendees usually arrive dressed like their favourite superheroes or characters. They'd been looking forward to it all year.
Of course, Buddy is old enough to come up with his own costume. He did pretty well, Saucy figures, as she has absolutely no idea who he is supposed to be. Apparently, he was a big hit. They both were.
Saucy helped Loopy find the right cargo pants and shirt and then Uncle Bug came to the rescue and helped make that giant wrench. Loopy was dressed as girl mechanic Winry Rockbell from the Japanese show Fullmetal Alchemist. Saucy actually knows this because she's been watching a little bit of the series with Loopy some nights when the homework is all finished. It's animated, but don't call it a cartoon. These things are not cartoons.
At any rate, Loopy was also a huge hit at the convention and other attendees asked to be photographed with her. She also got an autograph on her wrench of one of the voice actors from the show (that is not a cartoon) appearing at the event.
In the meantime Saucy has been busy, busy, busy spinning her wheels and never really getting anything done to a finished state enough t share with you here. Hopefully next couple of weeks she can show you the completed outdoor kitchen (waiting now for backsplash and counter to be installed) and definitely she's going to show you what 32 dozen Cheerio cupcakes look like... she and the girls finished that on Friday night for a successful sale on Saturday morning.
If you also have twenty unfinished projects on the go, let Saucy know about it. Her hopes were dashed about getting caught up by the time the washing machine konked out on Thursday. That's sort of how Saucy feels right now... konked out. How about you?
