Dollar Store Present
on September 8, 2014 at 12:00 am
Most people spend far too much on birthday presents. Fraz is not one of them.
Our friend Debbie Adams’ recently adopted Wombie, Pinky, likes to dress up as a retro hippie. You can read more about Debbie’s family addition on her Wombie Family Portrait post on her blog.
Oh dear, it sounds like you are going to get something handmade Chris 🙂
I wonder what materials are available
for under a dollar these days? 🙁 lol
There’s lots of sticks and stones and mud and leaves in the backyard! And it’s all free!
Sounds grim Androgoth 🙁
Does grim mean really good?
It does Loon, but I
am sure that Fraz
will find something
cheap and cheerful 🙂
Hope your week
is going nicely xxxx
Well it was cheap at least!
Chris likes handmade things! At least that’s what he says. Sometimes.
How about a handmade aeroplane, that should be easy to construct with your expertise and is a very cheap present too, you could use some of your math paper to show how clever you are 🙂
That’s a good idea! I like to show how clever I am!
Ha Ha Ha!!! This really cracked me up. If you’re a cheapskate it’s always good to use the “It’s the thought that counts” line too Fraz
That’s a really good line! Most of my thoughts are pretty cheap!
Hahaha. It’s all about perspective!
Especially when you don’t have much money!
Oh, I’m sure there is a pretty pebble around there somewhere… 😉
Good idea! I should go to the beach!
You could always get him one of those 50 cent cards that says “keep this card,” on the outside, and the inside it says “it’s your present!”
LOL that sounds perfect Deb 🙂 xxxx
He could even get two for a dollar so he’s got his present for next year. 🙂
Milkshake for you my friend! xxx
Two cards for a dollar still sounds kinda expensive to me!
Tell you what, write happy birthday down on a piece of paper, draw a smile face on it, then take you dollar and buy yourself a candy bar.
That sounds way better!
Maybe I could get one of those cards for your birthday Andro! Which is the same as my birthday!
I’ll get those
And some chocolate for us too I hope!
Do they have them for a quarter? Or maybe you have a used one I could re-use on Chris. I don’t think he’d mind.
I’ve got two I’ve never used.
I’ll take them! No matter what they say!
Thank you for posting, Pinky today, Peter! 🙂
You’re welcome, Deb! There’s more of Pinky to come.
Pinky’s looking fine! And lol at the comic strip. That one made me laugh. 🙂
Thank you, Rosey!
Whew! I was nervous there for a second. Thanks goodness reason won out!
I always use logic when I’m using my money!
Bwahahahahahahaha. A dollar is extravagant? I can’t wait to see this gift.
Have a fabulous day. 🙂
It’s a pretty cool gift made out of sticks and stones! Maybe you’d like one too!
How about finding
something for under
fifty cents? 🙂
I think you and I got him cover there….even for next year. 🙂 xxxx
Free is even better!
Here’s a free milkshake and a giant chocolate Rolo cake!….give some to Andro!
I will! Andro and I always share everything!
That would be better Andro but I’d like free a lot more!
I love the retro hippie thing going on with Pinky, and it looks as though she is enjoying every minute of it Deb 🙂 xxxx
She is enjoying it. I can hardly keep her from trying on different hippie things. 🙂 xxxx
Pinky seems to be a clothes horse! You may have to put on an addition just for her closet!
I’m sure Deb’s Wombies would love an add on addition that was all closet!
You know, now that I had a moment to think about it it doesn’t sound like a bad idea. They have so much clothes. Seems like I’m always buying hangers….the closet is stuffed!
I’m sure your Wombies will thank you. And probably make you some extra special treats!
OMG…that’s all I need!
Pinky likes the hippie look, and so does her older sister Tink. Maybe that’s where Pinky gets it from.
She does. She looks up to Tink!
I thought so! Maybe they’ll paint their room with psychedelic colors!
The scenery in this cartoon looks similar to the animated Fraz one, the one where he is dashing around all over the place 🙂
I always like to see what you will be drawing next Peter and you always deliver too 🙂
He always does a great job. He never fails to deliver quality artwork!
Thanks, Deb. This is actually an earlier cartoon that I didn’t really like all that much.
Well, I like it. 🙄
And I’m glad you do!
That’s pretty funny, Andro. It is! I got lazy and re-used the same set from the video for this cartoon. Basically it’s just a foreground grassy hill, with a photograph as the backdrop.
If only Nicole and dime stores still existed!
I could probably afford to shop there!
Dollar stores have ruined everything.
Yeah they need to have some cheap stores for us poor kids!
Maybe if there’s a five and dime! :OP
I looked around and couldn’t find any!
How ’bout five finger discount?
I only have three fingers! And a thumb!
Free hugs are always free.
They are unless you sell free hugs for money! Wanna buy a hug?
I’m going to reach out and squeeze and if you are in the way I’m not responsible.
You missed me! I think you got Winky though.
Oh, Fraz, I think Chris deserves extravagant! 🙂
And Pinky is adorable!
I dunno. Chis is always yelling at me!
Yelling at you? I assume you’re not provoking him, right? 🙂 Just give him more chocolate!
I never provoke him! He just really likes to yell. At me most of the time. I’ll try giving him more chocolate.
Ha! Well played.
Too bad I wasn’t well payed!
I know better than to get into word play with you!
You don’t wanna play with me?
LOL! I guess the dollar store would be extravagant for Chris.
It is! A dollar wouldn’t be too bad for Winky or Twink though.
I agree Fraz. It is the thought that counts. and you have lots of thoughts!
I do! I just wish I could sell some of them! Then I’d be rich!
Fraz we call it 99p here and it sound very expensive compare to the dollar store.. according to rate of exchange, a chance to impress Chris. OK just an idea for super extravaganza
I don’t think anything I could buy Chris would impress him too much. Maybe I should just make him something for free.
Wouldn’t want to go overboard there Fraz. Good call. 😉
Not with Chris I don’t! I don’t even have a life vest!
Hugs are cheap
And so am I!
Every gift, that comes from a heart is nice 🙂
I’ll tell that to Chris!
I’m sure, that he knows that 🙂
Maybe. It’s kinda hard to tell with Chris!
My wife shops there for both my birthday and our anniversary since she can get TWO cards for a total of $1!
That’s still kinda expensive for me!
Yes! Let’s not get hasty, Mommy Warbucks!
Especially not with my money!
Oh Fraz…it’s just a dollar store! BUT then again, let’s see…a dollar store, you may not find anything wonderful and nice for Chris..and would then need to go from store to store, looking and searching for that special something for him…and in the end it may be too extravagant. Nothing like a bunch of flowers picked up…from the neighbour’s garden…with LOTS of love, I’m sure. 😉
I dunno if Chris likes flowers but I made him something out of the sticks and stones I found in the yard! He looked really surprised when I gave it to him!
I bet you could whip something up in the kitchen with Twink which would make Chris really glad you remembered his birthday.
I never thought of making Chris something to eat! He might like that!
Just say happy birthday…that’s enough 😉
That’d be even cheaper than making him a present!
