    He he. Was the big, bad Thor really that shaken by a woman? My, my. Poor Thor. Barbie is one heck of an Amazon when it comes to his size. I’ll give him that. Although I didn’t think anything scared our mighty little Norse god. I’m sorry he was in a hurry to skedaddle. I wouldnโ€™t take it personally. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I bet he could have turned those cattle across the street into a tasty dinner for all to eat. LOL.

      Shaking in his sexy black boots, I’m afraid. Not that I blame him or anything. I mean…he didn’t know Barbie at all, and she did kind of bring to mind visions of a cross between Fatal Attraction and Misery.

      I do have to admit that I’m still having visions of freshly roasted beef. I should have let Thor have at it. What could the rancher across the street have done about it? Have Thor arrested for cattle rustling? Yeah, that would work. ๐Ÿ™‚

        I don’t know…After Thor almost got clobbered for horse rustling at my place, he might think twice about rustling cattle. ๐Ÿ™‚

          Yes, she is a cheeky little thing…but as long as she stays far from my RDJ, I’ll let her stay. But I don’t blame Thor for drooling over the cattle. I sometimes look at them and think…ox roast! But then I don’t know if the neighbor shoots rustlers or not, so I just open my freezer instead. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Every man, no matter his powers, is afraid of something. To think that Thor met his match, er his fear, in Barbie is not terribly surprising. Hmmm, perhaps Barbie has magical powers as well?

      Hey, Lynette! How are you? Yeah, poor Thor. I felt kind of bad for him. Especially after he chose to spend the night in the van. We were seeing single digit windchills that week, too. I’m sure he’s glad to be back in California now. Although I’ll be curious to find how he handled the MOB of Barbie’s relatives living at Tameri’s house. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ha ha, fun post.
    I think Thor and Barbie would have made quite the cute couple.

      Thanks, Emma. And I totally agree! They would have been adorable together. But I guess Thor felt he needed more than 3.25 minutes to get to know his future bride. Finicky guy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Poor Thor! Did Debra tell you I have at LEAST two hundred Barbies? It’s okay, Thor’s been cool with them so far… He arrived yesterday to much fan fare and excitement in our house!

    LOVE the cow picture. I can just imagine Thor choosing his dinner. The picture of him in the car with the wrap is hilarious! Sure looks cold there. Brrrr. Hmmm, now that I think about it, since Thor’s arrived, it’s been overcast and chilly here. Did he bring your Michigan weather? Yikes. We need the sun back!

      Well I’m glad to hear that none of your HUNDREDS (?!?!) of Barbie’s are on the immediate lookout for a husband, Tameri. And if Thor brought some Michigan cold to your house, he could have had the decency to send some of the cA warmth this way. But we are in for a bit of a heatwave on Thursday. It’s supposed to hit 44.

      I love the way the picture in the wrap turned out, too. It was perfect. And the cow one…I was surprised. I don’t know how to work the focus on that camera at all. It was what the late, great PBS painter Bob Ross would have called a happy accident. ๐Ÿ™‚

    OMG, Barbie is a little she-devil. I heard she divorced Ken a few years ago. She must be a cougar now!

      She definitely is a cougar, Sheila! Twenty-four years older than Thor. Of course I really can’t blame her given what a cutie he is. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Kristy, can’t imagine all the stress a norse god can cause. Yet, I’m not surprised about Barbie. Doesn’t take much to get her going. Of course, Thor’s a hottie, so what was she supposed to do? Oh well. He’s Tameri’s problem now. Maybe it will thaw out since Thor is gone. Enjoy your steak! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Oh…Thor caused tremendous amounts of stress. Barbie had been driving me nuts for months she was so excited about his visit (and obviously she intended to make his stay permanent). I’m so glad we managed to sneak him off to Tameri’s. Some days I wish I’d sent Barbie along, too. And YES! to the thaw. Except there’s a little snow in the forecast again. Fifties this weekend, and near sixty later this week…and snow in the middle. Michigan is weird. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Aww, poor Thor. Scare from a Barbie Amazon and having to spend the night in a cold car. Memorable trip for him and a fun read for us all. I would fight Barbie for RDJ too ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Hi, Reetta…
      Thanks for stopping by. And yes, poor Thor. I’d like to think had he come in warmer weather, he might have enjoyed his stay at my house…or rather in my van…a little more than he did. Hopefully he’s enjoying sunny California more. Oh…Barbie and I have an agreement now. She leaves RDJ alone…and she doesn’t turn into cattle feed. ๐Ÿ™‚
