Ms Cabela

We went to Cabela's last night.  And look who I saw there!  What an improvement!  I think the gentleman I spoke with last time must have taken my comment about blogging this more seriously than the last three people I spoke to there.   He did a double-take when I told him and said, "Wait.  You are blogging this?"
She is not only sporting a much more up-to-date outfit, but she has developed a bit of an attitude with those new clothes!  Look at that hand on her hip!  I almost didn't recognize her.
She has a nice print top and draped sweater, topping beautiful cream colored slacks. Her brown, leather shoes are practical, but fashionable.  Such an improvement over those clunky black boots she's been wearing for months.  I hope they don't try to sell those boots; they must be pretty stinky by now.

And look how nicely she is accessorizing!  She's got bracelets and even a purse! I don't think she needs a hat.  If only she had eyes, so she could see herself in a mirror now.  It's a good thing she couldn't see herself before though.  I think she would have been disheartened.  Can you be disheartened if you don't have a heart?

I know you would say thank you, if you had a mouth.
You are welcome, Ms Cabela.  Glad to help!  You look maaaah-vell-us.

If you are out of the Cabela's loop, here are the older posts:

2. Cabela's Again?


  1. Ah, that's hilarious.
    The power of the printed word!

  2. The power of the thought-filled, adding on to Andrew's comment. Just how many would give more than a glance to an ill-fitted mannequin? I love the story & the follow-up. Some acts just do good, no matter the heart, Donna. Thanks for the laugh!

  3. Ah - she does look better! I guess you could say it's the POWER OF THE PEN to make small changes in the world.

  4. I really like the sweater and she is wearing it so proudly. I know that she is so grateful that you blog. XO

  5. Ms. Cabela must appreciate the rescue as much as we appreciate the story. So much fun!

  6. I still think it would be fun if they let you to dress her.

  7. Wow, I'll never look at a mannequin the same again! This was a great idea. Loved it. Happy Slicing!
