Granny Squares for those that need them cal 2018

Recommended Posts

 I love the channels running the Westerns and old stuff.  Wish I had the one running all the Star Treks but the one that runs Westerns on Sat and during the days during the week runs the original ST Sat night. I would rather watch the old shows than most of the current programming.  There are some I am watching now that I did not watch when originally aired.  They have too many shows like Survivor, Dancing with the Stars, Big Brother etc for my taste.  One thing I find fascinating is  spotting actors like Leonard Nimoy on Perry Mason, Rawhide, Bonanza, Wm Shatner on Big Valley, Deforest Kelley on Bonanza and Chuck Conners on Super Man.

Mary Jo I feel at the very least neglected that they have not responded at all to the Board Help issues we posted and even more disturbed you and Terri got no response to your pms.  Guess it was a good way to go ahead and kill off the already dying wish lists.  Makes me sad.

I hate to tell you all this but somehow I got this setup to go to my first unread post in a thread.  I cant tell how I did it.

Go to the link I posted and read through it.  Amy explained to me how to do it there.  If you get it set up its great.  I just come here and select unread.  All the threads that have posts since my last visit show up.  I select the thread I want to read and it takes me to my first unread post.

Girls if you look at these pictures they will help you go to your first unread posts in a thread. Go to My activity Streams then Content I follow. There is a little star next to the name of the thread and if you click that star, it will take you to the first unread post. Hope it helps! I discovered this by accident.

Well we just got word that dh's cousin who was very dear to him passed away today at the age of 79. I always enjoyed when we got to go visit her and really admired her grit.  She loved cooking huge meals for large family get togethers (something I am not good at all doing) She hosted  family reunions at the farm where she continued to live after her husband passed away.  Her kids wanted her to move or at least let them hire someone to keep up the mowing but she wouldnt hear of it.  Matter of fact her dr told the kids to leave her be as that was probably the reason she was still alive ( she had beat a cancer or two and had bypass surgeries). The farm house is well over 100 years old but she and her husband had remodeled it updating it with electricity and plumbing doing a lot of it themselves.  It has a woodburning furnace.  I always found it incredible that it looked like such a little house on the outside but was huge on the inside--3 huge bedrooms,1 small one, and bathroom on second floor.  Two bedrooms have a king sized bed in them and one has two.  The first floor has a large kitchen, dining room, living room, huge bedroom and bathroom.  She always made me feel welcome and like I fit right in.

In the grand scheme of things I never got to visit many times but she made a big impression on me.  When dh and I got married she, her husband and her brothers were his family that he wanted me to meet as his folks were gone.  She was all set up to keep tabs on dh's father in a nursing home when dh was being deployed in the first Gulf War which was before my time.  She told the funniest stories about herself and family like the time her ornery son put a firecracker in her cigarette or nearly electrocuted  in a lawn chair.  She so loved having as much family from her kids, grandkids, great grandkids, brothers, nieces, nephews, cousins and all their families together at her house for a meal.  Not that she had to do for that many by herself because as each of us womenfolk walked in the door we all pitched in to help and we had fun doing it.

I did NOT got reply either to my PM I sent  (Help section too) about problems I have. I think both of our owners just do not have a time. They must be very busy with that "Sparkle Studio" and other stuff..

It would been nice if someone else would got "appointed" by them to take care things here.

Difficult morning as expected. I feel so bad for dh as he is taking it extremely hard.  To they top it off as we were leaving vet they were shutting streets down all around us for a high school marching band invitational.  Sure didnt need to be trapped there for hours. Its warm and wind is blowing.  Storms are brewing.

 

Prayers going out for you and hubby.

Big Hugs:hug:hug to you and DH Brenda.  She sounds like she was a wonderful person.

Not much going on, except it is nice and cool here.  We had a full day of rain yesterday and now the cool air has come to town.

I still have the pocket of the tote to do and I hope to get it done or at least started today. 

Hope you all have a great day.

Good Morning from very cool Florida.  It is almost long pants weather.  It will be even cooler tomorrow.

Hope everyone is well this morning.

I put aside the tote for a couple of days to make a cozy for our new cell phone.  It is in the new Crochet World, Dec. 2017.  Fascinating stitch. Instead of the usually way you crochet, you crochet thru the legs of each stitch.  Gives it a very different look.  This is for a large cell phone.  There is also a pattern for a small phone and a tablet.

Well off to see what the world has to offer.  We are waiting for our friend to come over to do some work in the yard.

Good evening everyone.

It seems life has it way of getting in the way of me getting on the internet so much these days. I have a few moment to myself and wanted to check in. Hubby, grandson and daughter are watching the second Harry Potter movie so I broke away for I just didn't feel like watching it tonight.

I hope everyone is doing good and well.

Take care

Good Morning.  Dancing :woo:dance in the streets here.  Starting to dig out my long pants.  It was 54 this morning when we got up and it is not suppose to go over 70.  I think fall is finally here.

I have 11 more rows on the pocket of the tote and then I can get to the extra's.

Hope everyone has a great day.
