"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

SHOW AND TELL: Cars and Trucks and GIVEAWAYS...oh my!

I promised to show y'all pics of Joey's finished Pinewood Derby car so I decided to do that for this weeks show and tell.

We went from this...


to this (click on this to see a bigger pic)...


Here are a few of my favorites that some of the other scouts made (you can click on each one to see a bigger pic)...








~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now, its GIVEAWAY time...

My friend Rys is hosting a Name that car contest on her blog. There will be two prizes given...one to each person who suggests the winning names. Rys is supplying one prize...a cross stitched pillow (cute car theme)...and I will be supplying one prize...a custom painted derby car. Whoever wins the car can specify colors and maybe a theme for the car but not the style of the car (the block of wood has already been cut). The car can either be for you or for a child in your life.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To see what everyone else in class is bringing to SHOW AND TELL, take a trip to visit the Miss Mel, Goddess of the Infertility Blogosphere.

Wow, does that ever bring back memories! My older brother was in scouts and I remember him working on his cars. He had some cool ones.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane! They all did a fantastic job!

Some interesting designs...

I call phone car "Hello? Oh, I'm Pine, how are you?"
And the flip-flop foot "Dude, where's my stump?"

Wow! Those are super creative. We finished our car over the weekend and I hope my ds won't have to compete against any of those.

OMG, I love the severed foot! Too funny! My stepson just did his first Pinewood Derby this year...I think my husband was more into it than my stepson was!
