"It's A Great Day To Be a Peanut!"


Ms. Peanut, as we call her,  is the spokesperson for The Peanut Depot on Morris Avenue. Every Saturday she dons this great but WARM peanut costume and happily calls to shoppers that pass by her booth at the Pepper Place Market. No matter how hot and humid, she is smiling, cheerful and just adorable!  I don't know how much she gets paid to do this but whatever the amount.......it's not enough!  Oh that everyone loved their job as much as she does!

NOTE: Thanks to readers Harriet and Dystopos for supplying her name....Felicia Jackson and this information about her here!

Her name is Lisa Jackson and she is from Brewton. Both Lisa and her sister Deanna were awesome basketball players for UAB. Lisa wants to start an advertising company like this for businesses in Birmingham.

Excellent portrait Virginia. Love it!

Rob said...

Yes, but what fun to get paid to meet and interact with people outside the confines of an office. A grand portrait!

She was so sweet .. I asked her if she was hot and she said 'its only another hour and in my head its much cooler' ... I almost posted the photo of the Peanut Depot but went with the sun dial ..

Daryl, that is a great line.

She's very pretty -- bet she's an actress, making ends meet with this job and that.

What's the old TV ad? Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't. I'm glad she enjoys what she does. Way better than dressing as Ronald McDonald.

Her name is actually Felicia, and this was her own business idea which she brought to the Peanut Depot.
