A Fun Challenge/Giveaway

Most of you who have followed me know my sidekick, Brittany(Bree), my niece. For those of you who don't she helps me with just about eveerything (except gardening) and she does all my computer fixing when I mess it up.LOl Here is a post on Britt if you would like an update on why she doesn't help me with gardening. ROFLMBO!!

We have all heard old women making comparisons with their old sayings when they are explaining something. Well Bree is wanting answers to some of these old wives sayings. So she has asked me to have a fun challenge/giveaway to get some answers.
So here are the questions.
Who is Dick and why is his hatband so tight?
Who is Kootie Brown and why does he stay drunk?

Now for the fun. Starting July 1st until July 15th everyone can leave comments on what you believe is the answer. Bree is going to go through these answers and pick out what she believes is the 10 best. Then we are going to let everyone vote on what they think is the best of those ten from July 16th to July 31st. I will have the crows in the mail on Aug. 1st to the winners. That person will win this Lil' Grandma Crow's Old Timey Sayings Crow. I LOVE this Lil' Crow!!
But to give everyone a chance I am going to take the rest of the people who leave comments and give away another crow! So everyone has a chance to win.
If you don't know who Kootie Brown and Dick are, that's ok. Just leave a comment on what you think.LOL And if you have any more sayings we would love to hear them! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
The rules are simple. All you have to do is be a follower of my blog. New followers are always welcome. If you would like to share the fun on your blog or pinterest, facebook, etc. feel free to do so. I want this to be a fun challenge/giveaway. And remember Bree is in charge of the challenge/giveaway, I am just providing the free gifts.
So put your thinking caps on and give here some answers!
