Whistling Dixie's Grand Opening!

Hello...There is much anticipation in FunTown and the surrounding villages today... because today is the day we have all been waiting for... the Grand Opening of Whistling Dixie's Toy Shop. Dixie has had a store for many years...but...due to popular demand...she is expanding to a larger space. Hip-Hip Hooray!

The Funnies set their alarm clocks early so they could get in line. I hope that they are obeying the speed limit.

Parking spaces may be a problem...but walking is good for us...right?

It seems that many people read the "Hip-Hip Hooray Gazette"...the FunTown Daily newspaper. Dixie took out a full page ad...she could do this because she comes from a very wealthy family.

It stated in the full page ad that there would be refreshments served all day. this is good as we all love tasty party snacks.

Phil Harmonica is getting anxious as his duck is such a waddler and he wants to be first in line.

Here is Whistling Dixie posing for a the newspaper is covering the event. I love the window display. I want one of everything.

The countdown has begun.

Ooh...Dixie is opening up her shiny new door...Uh-Oh...I don't think that Phil Harmonica is here yet.

This little Miss Sourpuss must be from out of town...I heard that she was upset because she arrived later in the day and Dixie had sold out of Yo-Yos. She shouldn't be so upset because there are plenty of cookies and pink lemonade.

She obviously didn't read the big billboard as you enter  FunTown...She might not be welcomed back if she doesn't obey the rules.

I will keep you updated on this momentous day. I can't wait to see what everyone purchased.

Have "Don't you love toys?" fun,    Jody
