Chilly Willy ?

I named this bead "Penny Penguin" after my daughter's new puppy (I bet you can guess her name). She's a Bug - no really...besides having all of those puppy traits she's actually a breed now named a Bug. She is a cross between a Pug and a Boston Terrier. They are calling them Bugs. How funny is that? What is even funnier, or rather cuter (sorry Kate) is that to me she looks a lot like Gizmo. Remember the movie about the Gremlins? Well, she's the good one. Fuzzy - good character - climbs like a mountain goat! Maybe I should have made a mountain goat bead...but it's cold outside and penguins come to mind instead. Stay warm everyone. Unless, of course, you're one of those people who is living where it's warm right now and I think you ought to go and stand in the local grocery store freezer for a couple of minutes so you can really feel sympathetic when I start complaining about the piles of white stuff and I don't think penguins are cute anymore. HA HAHAHAHAHA.

Oh, about the title of this piece. Wasn't there a famous penguin named Chilly Willy? I just can not remember where I know that from - a malted or a beverage? Maybe the cold is affecting my brain cells. Oh Yeah, that's the's cold and the brain is in winter hibernation.

I love your little penguin! I've never heard of Bugs before. How cute is that? Yes, hibernation is good in the winter! I'm all with you!

Hey, Sharon, I remember Chilly Willy, too. I think I remember him chattering from the cold? Maybe he was a cartoon character along with some of the other Looney Tunes?

I'll bet Penny the Pug is as cute as a bug! A Gizmo doggie would have to be absolutely adorable!
