Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate, cherish and be grateful for what we have. 

It is not the time to spend hours waiting in lines to maybe get a "hot" item.  Maybe, instead of shopping, people should stay home and enjoy more time with their families. 

And, for all those people that complain about the food, lines, etc at the restaurant they went to, they should prepare their own Thanksgiving meal.  Do you really think we'd rather be there than with our own families?

Well, they both start with B

The barbershoppers get together was this weekend.  Mother made a comment that she thought I didn't like them.  Apparently, she thought it was the banjo weekend.

Here's another peek at the shawl with no name.

The fiends are back to normal after Rose's solo trip to the vet.

The shawl with no name may have a name, and it is progressing nicely.

So, Rose has survived his sojourn at the vet. Of course, to Gil he smells all wrong, so Gil is having nothing to do with Rose. He's been hissing when Rose comes too close. I told the MPU that it was payback, as Rose did the same thing when Gil came back from a solo trip to the vet.

Gl did do better as only cat than Rose, ie he wasn't all clingy and needy. He basically did the same things he does every day.

I dug out the jersey knit sheets for the parental units, or I tried to. I found both fitted sheets and both sets of pillow cases, but no flat sheets. Hmmm, wonder where they went?

The shawl with no name progresses. I'm 2 1/2 repeats in. 1 1/2 repeats will put it at shawl ĂȘtre size, to get to full size, it will take another four repeats plus the border. The yarn is working well. I was not sure at first, but the accent colors are only showing up here and there and for just a few stitches, there has been no major pooling. Hopefully, I can make more progress today and tomorrow.

I dug out the recipe for the chocolate fruitcake that I have been meaning to make for the past several years. I am going to be making a few changes, I am going to take out the pineapple and swap the dates for cherries.

Now, I have to finish the laundry and make pie. Yum.

Not A Good Day

Dear humans,

Please tell Mom to bring Rose back. I'm lonely without him. AND, there was no dinner last night and breakfast was LATE. TRAGEDY!!

And, Mom won't let me help with her shawl.


Rose went to the vet to get his teeth cleaned.
