The Lion, the witch and . . . what the? The blackbirds are just a flockin’ and a cacklin’ and you know what that means! The cold air’s a fixin’ to come back to Georgia y’all! This calls for mink coats! Come on Momma! Let’s pop over to J & K Fleas An’Tiques located at 184 South Main Street in downtown Madison and see if they have some antique furs we can buy! Yeah! Wow! This antique shop is super fab! Hey I’ll just bet owner Keith Rex keeps some mink coats over there in that ancient, huge wardrobe! Let’s look! Creeeeeek! Wow! Check out these minks! Momma . . . Momma! Where’d you go? Shasta! This is like a walk-in closet that never ends! Burrrr! It’s getting’ right cold in here . . . what the? We’re in another world! Where’d all this snow come from? Momma! What in the Sam Hill are you doin’ sippin’ tea with a ding dang faun in a snow storm? I mean look at those goat hooves and his hippie hypnotic flute! Now I don’t know ‘bout you but I’d much rather shop locally! Throw down that tea and let’s get back in that wardrobe and back to J & K Fleas An’Tiques in Morgan County! Wheeww! We made it!
