Welcome!

My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Happy Birthday Mr. Hambo

*This is my second post today...Please scroll down for Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.*


Happy Birthday to Timbo, the man behind the pen (or is that Pig Pen?) at Hambo Stamps!
The Bacon Bits are surprising Tim with a little birthday fun today and we would love to have you join us in celebrating. If you arrived here first, you are in the right place. I'm the first stop, so this is the place to start for the whole story and to have a chance at winning the birthday prize!

See, the animal friends from the Hambo Farm were so excited that Tim, (their master and creator...Ha!) was having a birthday, that they wanted to throw him a party.  However, they were sad because their friend, Pig Inmate was wrongly accused of a "stinkin' " crime, and was locked up in the PENitentiary.  So they got word to him that today was the big day, and he broke out Shawshank Redemption style (Yes, he was able to escape through a giant hole kept hidden behind his Miss Piggy poster) and is now on his way to surprise Tim and the animals at the Hambo Farm.  He even had time to stop at the party supply store and grab some balloons :)


Thanks for stopping by to help celebrate Tim's birthday. Don't forget to leave some "hogwash" in the comments section! Hoppers must comment on every blog in the hop to have a chance at the prize. Comments should be made by Friday, November 11, at 10 PM to be in the random drawing for the birthday prize!

Now off to Stephanie's blog, where you can see what happens next at Timbo's Birthday Bash! If you get lost, here is the order of birthday fun:
