Name that Fitter

Good Morning from a sunny Knolltop!

We are finally getting back into the swing of things around here...getting the lawn mowed, the bushes trimmed and the guys are hauling manure like mad!

I was so bummed last night as I walked into TSC and found the double rocker I wanted was gone. It had been marked down half off and I wanted to wait until it was 75% off before I bought it. Well, I waited too long! Now I'll have to keep looking. Now that I think about it, God must have a free one for me somewhere...I just have to pray for it! I'm also praying for a laptop. And the only reason I'm telling you this is so that when God does provide it you'll all know it was from Him and not my doing!

Okay, now for the contest that you've all been waiting for! Get ready to play


Name that Fitter!

I will post a picture and give you several names to choose from then you post your answer. Now we all know that fitters usually have a nick name, very rarely, unless they are very sophisticated and don't wish to be called "Hoss" or "Spike" or "Gushie", will they go by their real name. So while I was at the show last week I took pictures of all the fitters I could find and told them they would be on my blog this week.

Here it goes....our first contestant hails from Wisconsin. He is a very jovial kind of guy and can be often seen sporting a pink striped shirt and pink plaid shorts. No, not your normal attire for a cattle fitter, but acceptable nonetheless. Thank goodness there is no dress code!



Here are your name choices:

"Hoss"

"Jethro"

"Hugger"

"Bear"

"Twinkle"

You get bonus points of you can name the woman holding on for dear life wondering if she'll survive his bear hug.

You've got until Wednesday morning at 7 am to submit your guess. And of course the prize is......having the sheer satisfaction that you know your fitters!
