Fall is creeping up on me.


September 24.


And I've been a bad correspondent on here for yet another month.
Bad, Mary! Bad!


September 22.

Yes, Toivo, I know my excuses for slacking off are getting boring.  The yawn is a bit over-the-top, though.

So I'll do better in October.  I promise!  I'm making a list and everything!  And you know once I've put something down on a list...well, there's a 50/50 chance I'll get around to doing it.  But 50/50's better than nothing.

This one doesn't really count, since I already made one of these -- but hey, two in one month!  Not too shabby.

Now, on to the Christmas stuff...oy vey.


You know it's high tourist season...


...when there's a seemingly inexhaustible supply of old guys standing around outside of gift shops, waiting for their wives.

Police blotter.


Friday, 2:09 P.M.:  Caller states she and her BFF are having ongoing problems with a male who flips them off every time he sees them.

Saturday, 7:09 P.M.: 911 caller was difficult to understand as their story was all over the place.

Sunday, 3:23 P.M.:  Caller reports that her neighbors won't stop honking.

Monday, 7:36 A.M.:  Dispatch receives a 911 call, upon call back person says "pig, pig, pig."

What's making me happy this week.



This reminds me of me & my brothers yelling things in fake-German around the house when we were growing up.  EVERYTHING SOUNDS SO ANGRY!

What's making me happy this week.


This is delightful.

Bumpy baby blanket!

Striped bumpy blanket.

A super easy pattern that makes something super cool.  Definitely going to be making some more of these.

"I am stable as a table."


I don't know if it's my sinuses, or allergies, or a touch of the flu, but holy crap, I'm ready for this two-day dizzy spell to pass.
