Horns for Health!


The concept is very simple - turn negativity into laughs.

The method involves bicycle/clown horns. 

Rule 1 is Everyone Consents. 


Only 1 Rule because it may only take 1 honk!

Everyone gets a horn that makes a funny honk noise. 


Everyone agrees to honk the horn when someone else says or does something that is ______ (this is what you all consent to beforehand.) 

Common honk reasons are for "negativity" or "being unnecessarily critical." 


Instead of holding resentment, honk away negativity!

The honk noise may make pets flinch. A 1 inch magnet at the horn's end - aka Pet Mufflers - will muffle the sound.



Lanyards may be helpful to carry the horn around. 


Happy honkers Greta and Clark Walker endorse H4H!




Horns available at many places online and in dusty garages around the world!


COMING SOON: A very limited number of new branded Horns for Health horns may possibly be available for purchase in May 2024.

WTF Wednesday: Moving to Colorado

Hello Wednesday! Hello WTF!

There will be no creepy dolls today, I'm sorry - but I have some WTF news to share - Skippy Haha Vintage is officially moving to Colorado. 

welcome to colorful colorado

Though a tragic change in family circumstances is driving this decision, it's definitely a positive move on the whole - there are a few really awesome people in Denver that we're lucky to spend a lot more time around in the coming years.

I am extremely sad to be leaving the river that flows through our backyard.

I am a little worried that the thrift stores of Colorado will not measure up to the wondrous bounty of Western NC's goodwills, but hoping to find lots of old rodeo duds. 


I am sad to be leaving some excellent friends, and Asheville's progressive creative hippie community where I immediately felt welcome when I first came to visit 10 years ago (this week!)

lexington ave mural

I am sad to be leaving Marco's pizza.

I am excited to be in an awesome (warm! thick-walled!) house in Evergreen.

I am excited for all the spectacular hiking opportunities in Colorado.


I am excited to live in a state where grass is legal and swat teams are not busting into people's homes over a plant. 

I am excited to live in a state where Single Payer Health Care is on the ballot next week.

I am excited to live much closer to some of the most amazing, generous, fun-loving, adventurous, brave, funny, and smart friends and family in existence.

Our moving date is in November - which is now officially this month. 

I'll do my best to be back next week with more WTF treasures. 

As with all wtf wednesdays, there are no answers, only questions leading to more questions.

good night, henry

a little spark of joy in this world was snuffed yesterday as my parents had to say goodbye to their almost 9 year old cavalier king charles spaniel, Henry.

henry was my fluffy little brother.

he loved to ride in the car.

henry at the wheel

he loved to eat cookies.

he loved going to the bank.

daily sugarhoney: sugarroll

sugarhoney is not the most svelte puppy i've ever seen.

sugarchunks and pounce

the extra skin on her back forms a sugarroll. a veritable dorsal fin of chub.

there was a sitcom called E/R from 1983-84 with elliott gould and george clooney. there was an overweight nurse whose husband sang her a song. i cannot find it on video, but it went like this:

i want a woman with loooooove handles
something i can hold on to
skinny girls just don't hooooold a candle
to my sweet meat mama, that's you!

this song reminds me of sugarhoney.

daily sugarhoney: sugarstuffed animal

sugarhoney is quickly turning into a dream puppy. the more she controls her bowels, the more we love her. it's simple math.

we wanted a sweet cuddler, and a sweet cuddler she is. we are so lucky!

kevin & sugarsnugs

you can pick her up and put her somewhere, and she falls asleep. she's cool with it.

if pouncey could talk, he might have a different opinion. he spends a couple hours each day fending off razor pin tooth bites.  other than that, she is just a damn sugarangel.

daily sugarhoney: sugarflashbacks

these are from the past few weeks that i didn't get around to posting.

sugarhoney with her almost 4 year old friend. i mean come on!


pouncey is on base.

 (kevin took these last 3.)



and last but not least, sharing a tongue:

they're all getting along pretty well. eli is still being cordial, sugarhoney respects that. sugarhoney wishes you all a sweet weekend.

daily sugarhoney: sugarheadrest

the love affair between sugarhoney and pouncey seems to get stronger every day.

sister as a headrest 

we're pretty sure she came home with kennel cough, and has passed it on to pouncey via all their making out. kind of like doggie mono.

the internet says it's very common, not dangerous, and can last 3 weeks. they are acting fine, but pouncey is coughing. 

the price of love.

WTF Wednesday - 4.0

Welcome back to WTF Wednesday, the day reserved for celebration of the whacky and the wild.

My vintage shopping has been drastically curtailed of late by an un-house-broken puppy, so pickins are kinda slim this week.

But still, there is always some WTF: here we have a man so dedicated to weeding the front yard, yet so allergic to poison ivy, that he dons a tyvek hazmat suit to garden.

you can order tyvek suits for under $10 each on amazon. they withstand branch and briar sticks. they seem to repel poison ivy, too.

next we have a video that is bursting with FUN. it may make you scratch your head and say "huh?" or it may make you sell your belongings and go on ALO tour.  "Falling Dominoes" (Official Music Video) - made by the indomitable Guadalajara Joe.

now here's a confusing vintage t-shirt i found last week:

 oh seymour, what are you flocking about? 

is demi a woman's name? or short for half? is a doctorette a nurse? a med student? hmmmmm....

last but not least, giggling pouncey and sugarhoney think that's a real knee slapper.


As with all wtf wednesdays, there are no answers, only questions leading to more questions.

daily sugarhoney: sugarcushions

sugarhoney is doing great. other than peeing everywhere, she is doing great.

sugarhoney sugarcushions

she likes to sit on the couch and snuggle. once it cools off, i think she is really going to like snuggling.

i need to get a better picture of this, but she does the cutest hop when she is excited. all 4 limbs are locked straight, and she just bounces up into the air.

this is the basic idea:

daily sugarhoney: sugarkisses

sugarhoney loves pouncey.

sugarhoney pouncey kisses

really loves him.

especially when he has an ice cube in his mouth.

it's a sign of respect when a younger dog licks the teeth of an older dog.

pouncey digs it, too.
