Does she look a little different to you?
Indeed, she is much smaller. After I complained to my neighbors that the original had appeared and then disappeared without any of us knowing how or why, and expressed disappointment that we couldn't keep her on the mailbox, one of my neighbors bought us a new Hula Girl. And a 2nd neighbor contributed two rubber duckies. So last night I glued them all in place, in the hopes that they will stay awhile. A 3rd neighbor commented, "It's a good thing it doesn't take much to keep us amused." True. It's a VERY quiet neighborhood!
As you can see from my previous post (the link is at the top of this one), the mysterious appearance of Hula Girl in the first place (a genuine Whodunnit) was only rivaled by her equally mysterious disappearance several days later. When she came back--much smaller, it must be said (she must have been on a diet)--she arrived with a post-it note that said, "I've just gotten back from Hawaii."
That would be Hawaii-via-Hollywood, as the previous post details.
Yep, doesn't take much to amuse us here in the boonies. We are a quiet bunch. But as I said previously, I do love my neighborhood.
