SO, here's the story behind this creation!
Us women-folk were sittin' 'round the breakfast table, wonderin' what handicraft we could whip up for our ol' etsy shop. One of the youngins made a comment about grandpa's kisses were like kissing granite rock. AHA! Grandpa needed his very own lip balm, to drop in his overalls and use throughout the day. So, we got to chattin' this up! Even Grandpa joined in, he could tell we were all excited about something. What flavor? Well, MEAT-AND-POTATOES wasn't available (!%&#@dagnabit from Grandpa). BEER was voted down by the women (!!!!%&#@dagnabit from you-know-who, but, to his credit, it's been awhile since he was pulled over for speeding on his John Deere). Then Grandma said sweetly, "That man always tastes like coffee when he heads out for the day" -- and there, we had it! Now, what format? A tube? "I AIN'T PACKIN' NO LIPSTICK" Grandpa informed us. A slidey tin? "THE GERMS! THE DIRT! THE MONKEY GREASE!" shrieked Grandma. Grandpa's eyes lit up. Okay, that was settled.
Well, we hope you like it, grandma and grandpa were last seen smoochin' behind the barn...
