Who Might THIS be???

Okay, I am such a *sucker*. Not in a bad way~~I just get things in the skull and cannot remove them.

Like Milo. I had a ball with that ornery little bug. So I foolishly did an internet search and naturally did not find the small, yellow guy.

But, I did find someone who must be his first cousin, is a little more colorful and quite a bit LARGER. (does this mean more mischief? I don’t know….)

Allow me to introduce, Melvin. I think he will fit in just fine here. JUST FINE…….

And  he’s photogenic too……but they both sure liked the computer area. Hmmmmmm……you think it’s cause for alarm???

Anne - if it is possible, I think he looks like even more trouble. :) A definite cousin. Maybe you can buckle him in next to you on your adventures around town! LOL! I love his red party hat and sparkly eyes. You're in for it. xox!!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Pam, does this qualify me for total mental disability? That I search out a stuffed bug??? :D
I'm not sure....we may have to have a Melvin post now and then. He's been petty quiet and seems to be adapting well.
He really likes the printer..... know what happened last time. ;)


Elena said...

YAY!!!!! Bug kin! Love his colors and that smile....definitely mischievous!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

I think he probably likes motorcycles! ;D


Magpie's Mumblings said...

Ok - I'm head over heels in love with Melvin because, after all, he's purple and I love purple. Can't WAIT to see what mischief he gets into!!

Deborah said...

HAHAHAhahahaha! Yes, you are nutz. Cesnutz. I am going in the attic today to get my Halloween things down and shall look for the bag of stuffed animals and hopefully find Milo's parents. Maybe that is what his homecoming post is waiting for. Wishing you a lovely Sunday, my friend. Nutz to you! **kisskiss** Deb

Is melvin a purple people-eater???

I'm quite smitten ;)

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey M.A.

I'm hoping that he is not *quite* as mischievious as his cousin....because frankly I am not sure I can keep up the pace!
He is a rather attractive shade of grape, isn't he? ;D


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Deborah...DEAR---this is all your fault you know. (heehee!)
I am still on the search for a tiny one, but feel like it was out of the blue finding Mel.....
ANd yes, I am completely NUTZ!!! And am happy being there!


Ces said...

Melvin? Does he moon people like you do. Yes you do, you did this morning anyway. Come look.

So is Melvin going on a tour?

Are you in church, praying before you you start your nutty day?


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...


Melvin is very well mannered, so far. No signs of being inclined to bite, nibble or digest! LOL!!!


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

OMG......I may have to come look in a bit Ces--DH wants to go shopping, and yes, I was at church. (I need all the help I can get you know.....)
So far, no mooning from Mel. I'm hoping it stays that way! LOL!!


Georgina said...

Hey, just a thought, but all those computer and Blogger problems may be attributed to you new buddy, Melvin!! hahahaha!!! I love him...where can I get a Milo/Melvin critter...need one in my studio. My little muses are taking a vacation right now and not doing their job..they need a cheer leader!!

Love ya,

Janet Ghio said...

AWWW! melvin is a cutie!! Hope he is better behaved than Milo (or do I?---Milo was sure fun!!)

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Georgina,

If you check eBay or the online auction places, you might find one. It's hit and miss due to the age of the little guys.....they aren't young! LOL!!


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Janet,

I'm not sure....all those adventures from *the little one* made for a lot of good laughs and blog fodder!
Melvin is far! ;)


Ces said...

What are talking about having an X for your face? I see your beautiful face mooning, I mean smiling at me!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Blogger was freaking out on me, so I changed the image.
When I went to your blog, there was a white block and an *X*!!!
I am a blockhead! LOL!!!

The Bald Block

Ces said...

HAHAHAHAHA! I see a new avatar with you and your fabric art. I don't know what you have been drinking. HAHAHAHAHA! Okay, I have to step outside now. I am carrying my laptop into the carport where I will stare at a canvas on my easel.

daylily (Queenmothermamaw) said...

I'm a purple person too, so love him. I am going to make me one of those as soon as I finish all the afghans and ponchos I am into. Gonna crochet me a Zhivago hat too, after watching that movie recently. LOL

Jan said...

Howdy, Melvin! He is the spittin' image of Milo in so many ways. I see trouble brewing, better be on your toes, Ms. Anne!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Had to change the avatar just because! LOL!!
Yes, purple Melvin is all innocent and quiet today....
I kind of recall another bug that started out the same way.
He strikes me as a bit more mature.
Oh dear--that could cause problems too!

Anne....who's been out working on waxing the car....

Karin Bartimole said...

Ha! sparkly eyed Melvin and his party hat look like SO much fun and mischief!! I can hardly wait to hear about his adventures :) glad to be making both of your acquaintances Anne! xox

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hi Karin!

Welcome to the madness and dubious content I refer to as my blog.
Sometimes I am lucky and actually get to post art.....but I tell folks not to hold their breath on that one!
I think Melvins adventures will have to wait until I get the current commission off the plate! ;)


Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

WOW! WWhat a fabulous blog you have going here, Ann!

I am coming by to see if you know what has happened to Tristan Robin Blakeman....he has not posted in MONTHS and I am worried a bit...I know that you frequented his blog and I just wondered if you had any idea what he is up to; I miss him so much as I am sure everyone of his follows has!

Your work is excellent! Anita

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hi Anita!

THanks for coming by, and the kind words.
Tridtan is on FaceBook, if you want to search him out there--the last I spoke with him he was knee deep in projects. After the shingles, he was *behind*. He cranked out eight quilts, had a whole collection of CDs he decided to put on eBAy, individually I believe... :O .....and I know he had a couple of classes lined up for Fall PLUS was working with the theater on either one or two plays.
I am not sure he ever sleeps. It wore me out reading!
I too miss him, both his blog and the comments! He is amazing!


Bella Sinclair said...

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh, that is a RIOT!! He's got that special glint in his eye..... uh oh......

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Well, you know, he IS related to Milo....
And he sits here quietly smiling.
Just smiling.
By the computer.
Hmmmmmm.......but he's been soooooo good! ;D
(yes I am ready for the looney bin...)


*Ulrike* said...

Oh comes trouble!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

No, Ulrike, I think he is a little calmer.
So far.
Of course I've thought that before too...
I guess I need to keep an eye open! ;D

Talk to me Dahling!
I'm waiting, breathless...... ;-D
