They Are Finally Together


Judy got married and had 13 children.  Her husband, Ted, died of cancer.  She married again and she and Bob had 7 more children.  Bob was killed in a car accident.  Judy again married, and she and John had five more children.

Judy finally diet, after having 25 children.  Standing before there coffin, the preacher prayed for her.  He thanked the Lord for this very loving woman and said, "Lord, they are finally together.
Ethel leaned over and quietly asker her best friend Margaret...

"Do you thing he means her first, second, or third husband?"

Margaret replied, "I think he means her legs, Ethel ... her legs."

Back to the real world.....Christmas is around the corner!

Hey there....I'm starting to feel like hide and seek - sometimes I'm here, sometimes I'm gone - now you see me, now you don't!

Hubby is settling into a rhythm of chemo and meds, me being the nurse, so I think I can start picking up some of my own personal threads and get back to "normal" for a bit.

I have been working on potholders, as some of you know, and lately have been looking at the ones by Delights-Gems who is a prolific pattern maker.  The thing is, she doesn't just make a square potholder with an edge, she makes AWESOME potholders and isn't shy about sharing them with everyone.  They are crocheted (all as far as I can tell) and they are beautiful.

On Ravelry she is simply known as Delights. There is, however, nothing simple about her.  So, if you are yearning to have something super special for a Christmas present or for yourself, this is the place to go.  Although her patterns may not be as fast and quick as others, they are surely more rewarding and more interesting.

Only 72 days left before Christmas!!

I've been scammed. I can't believe it....the kind of thing that I warn people about happened to my husband and I.  Had I answered the phone and heard what he said, then I would have known it wasn't my nephew, but he was talking to my husband first.

The problem is he SOUNDED like my nephew...who is a good guy who never gets in trouble.  Well, if you ever get a call from a "relative" in trouble (especially if it is in Canada) tell them to go to h#&&. :o)

We are out $3,000 - it won't kill us, but it does hurt us.  Hurts my pride worse than anything,  and I am usually more careful.

So if you get any Canada number like this one (1-514-553-4182)  it is a scam.  Many of those numbers are, and especially if they call you from a number that is a Google number.

Now that I have it all figured out I know that the people in CA called through the Google number - that they were in jail in Oceanside with some of those special cell phones - and then used another similar type Google Canada number...can't trace it.  Lost the money. Lost my pride, and during a time when we are underwater emotionally.

At least someone in Oceanside was able to get out of jail. GRRRRRRR.
