First, the thing we all care about, which is: How much money have we raised?
That figure, correct as of five minutes ago, is close to net. I’ve already sent Debra shipping money for all but two trolls.
This means that we’re sending four kids to camp thus far. Four kids who will have an experience that I hope makes a huge difference in their lives.
Or at least, that’s how I think of them.
And here are some more photos of trolls. Deb had ordered boxes for shipping and there was a delay getting them, but she’s back on track now. Better to wait than to have them get damaged in shipment.
There’s a little grouping of just a few of them.
Here are some closeups.
I don’t know about you, but they make me laugh. Every one is different. How Debra manages to come up with a different face, different look, on every one is amazing.
But wait, there’s more.
While nobody is sure what a “resembled troll doll” is, we want to make sure that everyone understands a couple of things about all this.
First off, every penny that is collected is going to charity. The charity is the Kentucky Sheriff’s Boys and Girls Ranch. Debra is not even recouping the cost of materials, folks.
And second, trolls are not limited to those on the Naugler side of the debate. Yes, I asked for a Eulanda troll, because I just love her and cannot wait to read her comments. She fills my day with sunshine.
But, as we’ve seen before, there is a Frances troll.Here, though, I want to present a new one.
The Al troll doll.
The bare butt is an inside joke. Be relieved if you do not know what it is. It’s okay. Normal people don’t.
Al will probably be joined by a Sally troll, a Lisa troll and a Debra troll, maybe more. We’re considering auctioning them off.
These troll dolls are not new.
I already own two of them. I have had these two dolls for months. Debra sent them to me way last winter and they live in my office.
My photography skills don’t even come close to Debra’s so don’t judge.
May I present the Joe and Nicole troll dolls. They are not for sale. They are mine.
If you can’t laugh and be good humored about having a troll made of you for the sake of charity, you’re a bit of a grinch, I think.
After all, Frances laughed when I showed her the Frances troll. Be as nice as she was. It’s for a good cause. Nobody is making money off this. Debra is donating her time and materials.
But she found a wee bit of extra time while she was waiting for a few of the trolls to bake, and she did something sort of spectacular.
The dog helped. That was before the dog ate three of the newly made trolls and came very close to going to the Rainbow Bridge.
There will probably be a Daisy the Dog troll.
Yes, that’s right. Debra made some bows. We are calling it the Ranger Bow Collection in honor of the Naugler animals and livestock that have and have not survived being owned by the folks at the shitstead.
I saw this and said, “Oh, gee, we need to sell those for the charity.” Debra replied, “That’s the basic idea.”
We have yet to hammer out the details. They probably are not suitable for pets unless you want them destroyed. They are pretty much people bows.
And that’s today’s work.
Can I have a round of applause for Debra?
