Pink Saturday

Hello again and welcome to Pink Saturday! Please go and visit our Pink Hostess, Beverly at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/ and you can go visit more Pinkness and your day will truly be made complete!

I would love to share with you Mr. Precious' gumball machine! He loves this old thing and has filled it with sweet little gumballs of all colors.
If you look closely you'll see gumballs of the color PINK! Yes, indeed! Pink gumballs all for your chewing enjoyment! Now if you'll just kindly hand me over a quarter, I'll get you some gumballs! Hopefully the Pink ones will appear. Of course they will - it's Pink Saturday!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Oh-me, oh-my, oh-you
Whatever shall I do
Hallelujah, the question is peculiar
I'd give a lot of dough
If only I could know
The answer to my question
Is it yes or is it no

Does your chewing gum lose its flavour
On the bedpost overnight
If your mother says don't chew it
Do you swallow it in spite
Can you catch it on your tonsils
Can you heave it left and right
Does your chewing gum lose its flavour
On the bedpost overnight

Here comes a blushing bride
The groom is by her side
Up to the altar
Just as steady as Gibraltar
Why, the groom has got the ring
And it's such a pretty thing
But as he slips it on her finger
The choir begins to sing

Does your chewing gum lose its flavour
On the bedpost overnight
If your mother says don't chew it
Do you swallow it in spite
Can you catch it on your tonsils
Can you heave it left and right
Does your chewing gum lose its flavour
On the bedpost overnight

Now the nation rise is one
To send their only son
Up to the White House
Yes, the nation's only White House
To voice their discontent
Unto the Pres-I-dent
They pawn the burning question
What has swept this continent

If tin whistles are made of tin
What do they make fog horns out of
Boom, boom

Does your chewing gum lose its flavour
On the bedpost overnight
If your mother says don't chew it
Do you swallow it in spite
Can you catch it on your tonsils
Can you heave it left and right
Does your chewing gum lose its flavour
On the bedpost overnight

  6. My son Tim would be in heaven if there was a gumball machine like that in our house. I've never seen a kid love gum as much as he does!!! What a fun treasure Mr. Precious has!

    take care,

  8. I started to buy a gumball machine at Christmas. Dillards had the cutest pink machine and they also had a red one. I just tried to imagine all of the places my grandson would leave the gum, so decided against it. LOL...Have a happy PS.

  14. That is so cute. I remember as a kid always wanting something out of those machines or a ride on those little rides we would see outside of the stores. Now come to think of it, I don't see those things much anymore. I can't chew gum anymore. Once the flavor is gone I start to gag on it. I know I'm weird. (sorry if I spoiled the fun for anyone)

  44. Sheila, Mr. P's gum ball machine is so cute and vintage looking. I dislike bubble gum but I love the colors. When I was a kid a had strep throat and I had been chewing bubble gum. I blamed it on the gum. Silly me. A strep throat hurts almost as bad as a new knee. It just doesn't last as long. smiling BIG.

    Thank you for your very sweet comments about our family today. I need to copy this post and send it to him. He is kind and loving and he doesn't think he is handsome at all. We are blessed.

    Have a wonderful Sunday.

    Hugs...Jeanne

  45. Hi Sheila, Love your husband's gumball machine! My parents had one when we were growing up, but come to think of it, I don't know what ever happen to it! We couldn't have this in our house now, David would be stopped up for months from so much gum! LOL! We hide "packs" from him now! LOLOL!

    Hope you are having a great weekend! :) ~hugs, Rhonda
