Look what Cindy has done to my body!!!

By "Matilda"

It all started one day as I was sitting prettily on the front porch, waving at people  (my favorite pastime is waving at  the  truckers), Cindy said she was going to take me inside for a "new do". I figured why not? hair has felt like  straw  lately and I certainly have been needing a new dress! ( I am not fond of those birds that come sit on my shoulder!)  Also, I am so relieved not being stuck out in that dreadful old shed ...can you believe it?  She actually stuck me out on a shelf out there last winter, as cold as it was..I was frozen board stiff!!!  So she owes me big time..i am ready for a new look!

My name is Matilda...I am a crafty old lady, who likes to wave and be admired. I have a witchy cousin named Esmeralda, who looks a lot like me bu wears black and has a black hat (and rides a broom) Cindy puts a sign on her "The witch is in"). we entered the house and Cindy carries me to the basement..imagine that!   and before I know it... what n earth s that screw driver  for Cindy? oh dear! comes my head and oh no...not hot glue!!!!!

Help! My head is detatched and laying in this box!!!

and this silly looking head ( Freaky Freddy)  is now
 on  my once gorgeous body!!! 

Well at least I won't be lying in the cold shed this winter and part of me will welcome and wave at people yet this Fall.
Happy Fall 'Ya All!
