icesheets, Batman... Got to ice skate today after not being able to do
since late May 2013 out in the West Texas town of El Paso. What a great
time! And let it be known that I absolutely smoked the Canadian skaters
who were there today... No contest!
|The Rink||Brent||Brent and Laura||Hunter and Brent||Alexandria|
EXCELLENT! Thanks, Brent! So - you beat the Canadians at their own game, eh? Wait a minute! Canadians?? That's your bride and her children of whom you speak! OOPS!
|FUNNY, BUT QUITE
TRUE, WE ARE PROBABLY THE LAST GENERATION THAT WILL REMEMBER WHAT A
CLOTHES LINE WAS and recognize the long wooden pole (clothes pole) that
was used to push the clotheslines up so that longer items
(sheets/pants/etc.) didn't brush the ground and get dirty. I can hear my
I still remember how nice it was to go to bed on nice clean sheets that had been hung on the clothes line to dry.
Great memories for some of us! It
is the poem at the end that's the best!
Thanks, Dools! As you know, though, clotheslines are one of the things for which I decidedly do NOT entertain any nostalgic fondness! I remember all too well.
I vastly prefer sleeping on sheets that have been fluffed soft in a dryer to those tossed in the wind, and which run the risk of having bird droppings or puffs of soot attached to them.
I would also strongly take issue with #8. Once when I was in high school, I procrastinated doing my laundry one day too late. Against my mother's advice of warning, I washed a dozen blouses (by hand on a scrub board in the bathroom sink). As predicted, a hard freeze came. As I was retrieving my stiffened blouses from the line, I broke one of them in half! I was not amused.
My Friend, Susan, of NC - 03/27/14 - "10 Social Manners for Children":
What would you add to this list of basic etiquette?
EXCELLENT! Thank you, Susan! Would a ban on rude sarcastic remarks, back-talking, and eyeball-rolling go without saying?
('65) of NC - 03/29/14 - "To Do List":
|COOL BEANS! Thanks, Jimmy!|
From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 03/28/14 - "Who Knew? (#1 in a series of 25)":
|WOWZERS! Thanks, Billy!|
BONUS SWEET NOTHING CROCHET PATTERN:
|Two-Inch Flower Crochet Patterns - "This flower is one of my favorite designs included on our list of easy crochet flower patterns. It's a sweet nothing of a little flower that's quick to crochet. My sample flower measures a little less than two inches, and it's only two rounds. Of course, if you crochet this pattern, your flower may turn out to be a different size, depending on the materials you use. I used a baby yarn to crochet my sample flower. If you'd like your flower to be bigger, you can use a thicker yarn. If you want a really tiny flower, use crochet thread or embroidery floss to make a miniature version."|

greeted him and told him to look around. The cannibal began to inspect
the meat case and noticed the market specialized in brain.
