There was also Care Bears Crochet Character in yarn (I have been looking for that one) and a great crochet potholder. Thank you very much Karen. I loved it all. It was great getting to know you a little better. I will get pictures posted tomorrow when I have more time. Gina
  2. Question One What summer vacation(s) from childhood are most memorable? I am not sure if this one really counts. My family didn't really take family vacations when I was little but the one time we planned one. It was a trip up the lakes. A couple of miles down the road we relized that we forgot jackets and went back to get them. When we left home again there was a car parked just down the street a little. Mom wasn't concentrating on the road and (yup you guessed it) crashed into it. There goes summer vacation. Question Two Share memories of family reunions or visits during the summer from extended family members. 2 years ago we had a family reunion at my aunts acerage. It was a very hot day and she turned on the sprinkler. Most kids just ran through it with their clothes on, but not my Tessa (shw was 2) She came up to me and wanted help taking off her shoes. I took them off and away she went. A few minutes later I looked down at the sprinkler and there was a bunch of kids playing in it. Including one naked little girl. My Tessa, just gotta love it. Gina

  7. JoAnns stores has always disapointed me. I now just think of it basically as a fabric store with a few extra goodies. They do have good book though. I love their online store and shop there regularly. Most of the coupons work there too and they usually have a free shipping offer going on.
  8. Nothing yet unless you changed you name to Racheal Ray or Bob Greene. Yahoo is running a little behind this morning wouldn't you know it.
  9. No Partner for me yet, exactly how many time can you hit the refresh button in a minute:scrachin Gina
