  11. ohh lea, i have played "yarn Chicken' MANY times, just never heard it called that, how funny!! More times than not though, i come out good on it lol its good to have a name for it now lol for those that might not know, its when you are working a row, or a round, or a piece with a small amount of that particular color, and winning the game is having enough to finish, loosing the game, is running out mid row and having to frog it lol i do this a lot when using up my small balls for granny squares lol but most of the time i come out ok lol I use the wrap trick though, if there is at least 30 wraps around my two fingers, i save it, as it will most likely make a center of a grnny, more wraps would be at least two or three times that for a six inch lol just my own trick lol bgs IS a busy bee these days, and i bet she has not had a moment free for her yarn and it feels so lonely i think.. lol Carol, you too have been one of those bees lol buzzing around and keeping busy!! i was pleased with my 6.0 i was sure it would be higher lol im so glad though im doing well its been a long time and i have sacrificed sugar, and sweets, and a whole lot of carbs too, so who knows huh glad it helped, i dont wanna do insulin either mj my neighbor got his two orders, and i got mine from prime, i ordered an 8 compartment flatwarer holder, i guess one could use it for that lol, but i wanted it for organizing my colored pencils, highlighters, sharpies, and markers and gel pens, at least more than four slots, and i got it yesterday, its hard plastic, lightweight, and i was busy this am filling it with all my wonderful coloring mediums lol it slides in my bottom table shelf and is ready and at my finger tips, just slide it out and put it on my table when i color, for hands on choices lol i love it good buy katy, high 5!! i need one more large folgers plastic tubs coffee comes in, i have three, and one more i will get soon, i tell handy to just get folgers cause i like the canisters, they have handle indents, and are easier to handle lol then when i have four, i have something in mind for them heheheh,, wait and see, some of my ideas, look great in my mind, but some, well shall we say, dont work out like i think they should lol dont ask me anything about the extendable cat hair picker upper ok lets not go there ok,should have worked!! speaking of Max, he is fine, just does his cat things and follows us around lol he hates thunder, and storms and usually hides behind the couch, and the dog, she would usually be in the bath tub or on the bathroom floor i guess she felt more protected there when the tornado that came through here a few years back, she was in the bedroom, as i was in bed, and she jumped up on the bed, and roused me and just as she did that, i felt my headboard shake, and dived out the door for the living room where handy was catching the weather, and we both felt the walls breath like, in and out it was too close.. hit a couple miles away, took out trees, carports, sheds,fences siding and roof damage, but only our flowering tree got a big branch down in front of the bay windows, which was bad enough believe me i never wanna be that close again but Ginger knew, and she woke me for it she also hated fire alarms and such, one night she woke me up and i thought she wanted outside or something so i let her out, no, she was still jumpy when she came in and nervous, she kept trying to get me up and out turns out my cell phone was quietly beeping, as i forgot to put in on to charge and she took that for a quiet alarm of some sort as soon as i plugged it in she curled up on her bed, and went right to sleep i miss her, in so many ways well time to leave you for a bit my friends, and find a chore that needs to be done lol glad everyone is staying healthy so far, so good later!!
