Why I Don't Have to Make Up Characters

So people who've read my book always say "you have the funniest characters. How do you make them up?" Simple answer, I don't. Check out this photo of my cousin Leslie and her husband, Charles. Could be a Maylene Thibodeaux in the making???



I warned Leslie that if she sent photos, they became my property and might wind up on my blog. I guess I'll be nice enough to tell you they're dressed for a Halloween party.

At least, I'm pretty sure they are...........

Holy moly! I think they live in my neighborhood! Do they have a pit bull and drive a '67 Chevy pick-up complete with moose antlers and gun rack?

Oh, that's great! I WILL get to the store today to buy your book. I WILL!

Hey, I think I've seen their twins in my neck of the woods, too! *g*

Colleen Gleason said...

Wow! Remind me never to send you pictures. LOL!

lainey - yes on the gun rack, no on the moose - but probably a deer head and a mounted duck or two. I'll have to check on the pit bull.

kimber - run, woman, run. :)

tori - the twins are everywhere.....scary, huh?

Colleen - hey, I warned her. And don't worry, anything done at National, stays at National. :)

Bwahahaaaa!!! That means I've got LOTS of leeway...and next year it's in Dallas. Wooohooo!!!

BTW, is that photo of your cousin for real, or is that a Halloween costume?

I'll never tell. :)

Leslie said...

LOL! Let me be the first to say this was certainly a Halloween Costume! We have had so much fun with these costumes. Glad everyone enjoyed the pics!

Jana DeLeon said...

C'mon, Leslie -you can tell the truth........

the sis in law said...

Wow, and to think I married into all this!!! Yeah for me!!!! As if I didn't already have enough characters in my own lineage! ;)
Leslie, that sho' nuff is one heck of a goofy getup!

OMG, sometimes, in the morning, when I look in the mirror, THIS is what I feel like! :)

And yes, you just lost all picture privileges with me, too! haha

Jana DeLeon said...

sis - you gotta love family! :)

lol Cari - I feel the same way in the morning. And don't worry about the picture privileges - you have that one of me that you can always barter with.

lainey - my mom left me a message yesterday that she'd read my blog and the picture of her niece was funny enough, but when she read your comment, she laughed so hard she cried. (I'm pretty sure we know those people you were describing)
