  13. good morning I guess everyone is near their breaking point,I thought it was totally stupid for our governor to say gyms were open, for outside activity only, the only outside activity at ours is the pool and they don't open that until Memorial day and then on top of this here comes hurricane season,things will get easier soon.

  18. cshort, I was thinking the same thing,but big wigs don't wear the masks, so what do they know
  19. yes Katie,lots of coloring,marking them Q plus date finished got the go ahead to make masks from the facility that his mom was at,their parent company wanted flannel backed masks,I asked Admin. he said beggars can't be choosers and gave me the go ahead to do two sided cotton blend, for some reason flannel dances around on my machine,so I prefer not to sew with it

  22. Oh Man,I used to be able to wear, what was called by his mom as junk jewelry, from the 5 and dime store. then I had Rene' my system changed alot,put those earrings in and what a festering mess that was,so from then on could wear only 14 or 18 k earrings, I can wear sterling silver with no problem and actually like that better than gold one time Sears sold us earrings,they passed off gold plate as 14k,with my swollen ears I went back and gave them heck,because I was adament that I couldn't wear the plated kind
