Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner

Sunday, August 05, 2012

First off, I want to thank everyone for all the hilarious entries in my "How Hot Is It?" contest and extend a hearty welcome to my new followers.  Welcome!

Kinda scary that I said I would run the contest until the heat broke - I randomly picked yesterday as the day that would happen and guess what?  It worked!  The highs were in the 80's today instead of the 100's!  I think I need to go play the lottery.

But I digress...

I hope you all had fun coming up with some creative ways to end the phrase "It's so hot that _____."  J. and I certainly were chuckling over them.  You guys are quite the creative bunch!  It was so hard to pick a winner, so I thought I would narrow it down a bit.  Here are the top 4 in the order they were submitted:

It's so hot that you can fry an egg on my forehead
--Submitted by Mami2jcn

It's so hot that my sweat started sweating
--Submitted by Mami2jcn

It's so hot that Satan decided to take a 'staycation'.
--Submitted by Lisa Lynn

It's so hot that I have to drink coffee just to cool off.
--Submitted by Mami2jcn

Pretty creative, huh?  After much cogitation and a little too much beer, I'm having such a hard time deciding that I'm declaring both Mami2jcn and Lisa Lynn to be winners.  Ladies, please leave a comment or email me (the link is in the upper right) within 48 hours of this post and give me your email address so that I can get your Amazon gift card zinging across the Interwebs to you.

G'night, everyone!
