Dammit Jim….

Ohhhh-myyyyy (if I may quote George Takei)…. look what arrived in the mail today!

It’s something I saw on Facebook that Lisa Snellings had made.  I happen to make a comment about it on Twitter when out of the blue Carl (Stainless Steel Droppings) commented back that he saw it and “just knew it had to be for Pat”.  *sniffle*  gosh, am I that obvious?  (fersure!)  And so I was informed that it was “purchased” and was on it’s way to me!!!   Wow, talk about someone feeling like a bowling pin having just been hit by a 16 lb ball!!

I said, “no you can’t”

and he said, “yes I can”..

any guesses who won? heh..  so let me show you what arrived in the mail today…

a tiny box with a bow.. and a small card signed by Lisa that indicated this was a “limited edition”… and a fabulous book mark!


so I opened the box …and low and behold!.. there he was!  McCoy Poppet!


(note how she captured his expression.. it lets me know that she may have seen the original Star Trek a few times lol)


Being a doctor, McCoy poppet when right out and gave Dr. visits to the other poppets in the house.   Everyone checked out ok except for “June”… he thought she might have a “bug”.. (don’t groan too loudly)


Then McCoy  poppet was put on display with Christmas decorations.  

He wanted to be by the Carolers where he could hum along….

after all… he’s a doctor not a singer!


“Dammit Jim… I’m a Doctor, not a poppet!”  (wanna bet?)

Ah, very awesome. He looks great, and she did capture his expression perfectly. I'm so happy he arrived safe and sound at the only home where he absolutely HAD to be. I don't always win arguments, so it was fun to win this one. LOL! Enjoy him, and have a wonderful Christmas.

Oh Pat! That is absolutely the most perfect gift ever!!! I think Carl's right--he made his way to the home that was meant to be. And not only is Carl right, but he's also as sweet and thoughtful and positively wonderful as they come, isn't he?

AWESOME! Now I'm hoping that I can order one for myself after Christmas, because after you (you are Queen of the McCoy fan group) I love him too....awesome indeed. Absolutely lovely too of Carl to win the argument!!!

Happy Christmas, Pat. Enjoy Doc poppet. He's adorable.
