~ I Wish I Were An ....... ~

Hello Everyone, I hope you're having a fabulous Saturday.

Living in a sleepy little town of a little over 5600 people, there's not a whole lot of excitement that goes on. Last Fall after our High School Football Team took the State Championship, excitement rocked for months around here. Small town living is perfect for us.

Friday evening is usually spent heading to Walmart to get the grocery shopping done and meds for Mr. P picked up. As I pulled in last night I thought is that what I think it is? I had to giggle to myself, what fond childhood memories I have of the song.

Do you remember singing along with the commercial?

Oh I wish I were an Oscar Mayer Wiener....

That is what I'd truly like to be......

'Cause if I were an Oscar Mayer Wiener......

Everyone would be in love with Me!What an incredible set of wheels. Can you

imagine yourself behind the wheel

driving this around? I think it would

be a blast! Someone

really had a stroke of genius when they put this

idea to paper and brought it to life.

The identities of the girls getting their pictures

taken is unknown, they were just too cute.

I'm not sure

why the Oscar Wiener Mobile was in town,

I was lucky to get these shots, they were packing

up and heading out to their next destination. I over

heard someone asking if they had hot dogs they

were giving out, the reply was no, they were given

whistles instead. :-)

I hope you enjoyed seeing the Oscar Wiener Mobile

come to our small town. :-))

Lynne, I so remember that song and the mobile is just way tooooooo cute. How fun to see it in person.

Also I am so happy that you tried the windshield cleaner and like it. I think the stuff is magic. Plus it is so much cheaper than the real window products. I spray everything in the whole house with it. Hugs, Marty

I've seen this before but not from all angles. I'm glad you shared them with us bz it truly shows what an amazing car it is. Do you remember the rest of the song....or maybe we made it up as kids. "oh, I'm glad I'm not an Oscar Meyer weiner. That is what I'd truly hate to be, cuz if I were an Oscar Meyer weiner everyone would be a bitin' me!" (short for biting)

Oh, too funny!! I've only seen it once in person. It was years ago and it came to town to "audition" kids to sing for a commercial. I don't know if anyone ever did get "hired". My son was a little guy then and he sang the song for them!

Does that ever bring back memories! I think your little town must've made the map because the wienermobille is pretty darn special! Vanna

Hmmm I found out that Wein is German for Vienna and hence "wien-ers" (weiners) are named for Vienna/Austria...also hence vienna sausages~!.... Oh the useless facts I have stored in my head now! Lol! Vanna
