Pssssttt....

Hey!  Don't look now, but it seems that I might be finally posting a post!
Life for me, not unlike yours I'm sure, has been pretty much nutso!  I have made it through my mother-of-the-groom duty with flying colors, as far as I know!  The wedding was lovely, the bride-beautiful, the groom-handsome as ever... I left my camera at home, but had my phone photos...but not really any with the bride and groom because, well, I was in those!

This is one of the official photographer  shots.  Pretty nice, right??  I figured out many ballgames ago that if I'm taking pictures, I'm missing out on the real action.  SO...I unplugged and enjoyed myself.   They traveled across the sea for their honeymoon.  They are brave and daring that way.  Not scared at all. Spain - Italy - Greece.  And they looked very happy and rested when I saw them on Sunday, but back to reality...But also, time to relax and take time in the house they moved into in February.  To just enjoy being there, instead of looking at a big TO-DO list. 
    And now, I'm working on the finishing touches of a graduation quilt and scrapbook for #4's graduation from HighSchool next Thursday night, along with the party right after.  It is my tradition.  DO the party that night and enjoy the rest of the weekend and parties with no stress or worries of what needs doing.
    Then we have our second wedding July 9th.  That one will NOT be as relaxing as we are the family of the bride and we have lots more responsibility.  But on the 10th, I'll be relaxing...except for when I have to go to Bible School for the night...for the week... but I'm at my own pace on that, so, it's all good...
  Then each happy couple has an order in for a quilt, that got noted, but I realized they weren't going to happen before the weddings, so I am trying to focus on the stuff that needs done before next Thursday...
It's good to be back... I'll try not to be gone so long....

Sneaking a post tonight

Well, I don't know if that's quite true.  Squeezing is probably more like it.  This is my incredibly busy time of year, and it's even more so than last year.  I'm looking forward to the finish line, but I have lots of stuff to look forward after my work lets up a bit.  And in the midst of all of this craziness, after we had discussed the idea of adding another dog next fall, after weddings and graduation and college check-in....someone posted this cutie of a farm puppy.  And how could I say NO??
Her name is Kali... or Callie... or Kallie....I'll have to decide before I get her name on her collar.  But for now, she's crazy.  And cute and loveable and not totally house broken and she takes my slippers and dumps her water and chases leaves when she's supposed to be taking care of business outside... but she is so cute when she curls up on my bed to nap with me.  Or flops in her crate during our work day... or chases other dogs around the house, and maybe even an occasional kitty.



Yep, I was crazy with puppy fever, but she's a keeper.  And I have to have something to train up, since these kids are pretty much done with what they want to learn from me for now...although I could get smart again later...I'll just hang around and see what happens.

February winding down.

I once had a wise veterinarian tell me that life is like a roll of toilet paper - the closer you get to the end, the faster it goes.  He never led me astray on other things ,so I'm trusting Dr.D on this one.  Seems the days and months are passing me by.  Sometimes it's sad that I don't enjoy more as it speeds away.  So I picked for my word this year (which is what EVERYONE is doing instead of resolutions) JOURNEY.  Because it's time I slowed down and enjoyed the trip and not just focused on the destination.  How many trips do you go on, that you jump in the car, go as fast as you dare, stop as little as possible, no matter HOW much leg-crossing is involved, so you can GET THERE.  Don't always remember how you got there, just know that you are now ready to enjoy yourself. 
Perhaps this is one of those over-50 revolutionary thoughts.  Heck with the rest of it, it's time to enjoy the ride.  So i stitched myself a little quilt for 2016.


Right now, it's just got a couple of pins through the tabs, but the instructions I gave to others, was to find a special stick and slide through to hold it.  And they have so far... and finally mine is done.

And so the days roll by, and the snow falls in huge dumps, then melts away....a bit different from last winter, where it came, it froze and stayed cold, and the same snow just hung around a long, long time.
Bedtime for me.  Tax season and lots of other things clammering for attention.  Need to do some more questions for our 52 weeks with Jesus project, but it's not happening tonight... see you in the morning!

Snow Angel Day

Sometimes, on a whim, you start a tradition.  Like when your friend doesn't make it through her bucket list...
this is the start of our tradition:  In 2013, when Elaine left in the early morning of January 29, she left behind a group of friends who were happy to cross SNOW ANGELS off the list... so in 2014, on January 29, we met at 6 a.m. in front of the school that we had attended with Elaine, and later, she taught, and dropped and flopped and we made art...And we have returned to the scene of the crime two more years.  Different years, different people... and then everyone coming in the school that day could have a smile and a good memory.  Last year was sooooo freeeezy cold.  This year, it was supposed to rain...but someone sent us enough snow...a little blessing for friends...  Here is part of the group...just getting started...

And before long, a whole string of beautiful angels... can you see mine?? Last year I hit my arm on a little tree...they trimmed it up so I wouldn't have that problem again...
 wow...this is what friendship looks like in a little town....

My angels are a little deeper in the seat every year, and we struggle a bit to climb up...but we have fun doing this together...  We laugh and do the front, then out back by the bus entrance... then we get ourselves out along the unplowed, untracked fitness trail, to Elaine's memorial bench and do a few more out there under the light of only the moon...sometimes a little frosty tears runs down your cheek, but it is with a smile that we do this....
And then we load up and head out to do our regular January day stuff... Renee and Willowe walk up to Bryan's to leave a couple in Elaine's yard....I stop by her mom and dad's house and leave a couple for Clayton and Avie....and then think of another special lady who is spending time with Elaine, so I stop at Howard McMullin's house and leave one in the front and the back yard for Sally, a special lady...Howard had been out in the front of the school when we were gathering, on his way to the weight room, as has been his daily routine for many, many years...I couldn't figure out which one of the crazy friends showed up in shorts until I realized it was Howard.
Here is Sally's angel...a little heavy in the seat... a bit of a drag to get out and up, but made with love..
Cuz that's what friends are all about.

Happy Friday... from the trenches...

Welcome to Friday from the trenches.  Here we are.  Tons of snow, but it didn't really snow today.  Cold.  The ski instructor in this house is happy for the work and the bonus of a snow day off school following a MLK holiday off.  I guess I'd rather have a bonus day on another week, but hey, if you're on a roll, keep on rolling!!
I took some really nice snowy tree pictures last week and have intentions of grabbing a Groupon coupon and printing one or two of them on canvas to hang.  My husband likes HOT, SWEATY weather...not much love for the snow....I say, hey, we have a LOT of work to do in the office in the winter and when it looks like this outside, golf isn't an options, so you may as well sit inside, next to the heated, sometimes in your sweats and slippers, and get LOTS of work done.  So we do...



Back to my snowy pictures...I picked up a Pottery Barn catalog before Christmas and was looking through it and saw some great canvas pictures of winter, but one of snowy pine trees really caught my eye and my heart...but not my wallet.  As a DIY girl, I thought, Heck!  I can do that!  Andrea had given a canvas for a wedding gift to her friend that had enlisted her help in catching the engagement on film.  And it turned out very nice!  So I decided I needed to be on the lookout for just such snowy settings to take some pictures.
If you've done groupon before, it's always good to check out the details.  I did family calendars for Christmas, but didn't realized until I was deep into creating, and had already purchased my groupon, that it did NOT include any writing on the calendar pages, only the photos on the top of each month.  350 or so dates later, I know that next year, I will check that fact BEFORE I buy.  They were still cool.  But I left a couple of things off.  Thought I only did one mistake, but others have shown up.  I guess I needed a proofer.
10 calendars, 35 special dates, it was bound to happen.
The canvas picture groupon that I had looked at first ended up to be only a panorama print.  I'm not sure if that's the shape I want, so I'm needing to do a bit more research.  But I'll have my own snowy picture, and it will mean even more to me, because it will be some snow and trees that I know personally.  And that's always a nice thing.  Like this tree here...not one of my shots to be considered.  But it was a gift several years back for answering some questions and offering advice, from a Christmas Tree guy.  He knows how to score points with me! 


 It's in my sort-of front yard.  It's my front yard, but I can't see it from my Kitchen window, because it's kind of tucked around.  But if you look realllll close, you might see the little baby to the left of it.  A tree that came home with a kid...from school, or church, somewhere like that.  It was planted by the back deck for a few years to keep it from being a lawn mower victim, but now has reached a point where it needed moved and hopefully can hold it own out in the wide open spaces of the yard.  So far, so good.  It's not really as close as it looks, because it is small and set back a ways.  There's plenty of room for it to sprawl out.  And give the birds some cover...and hold snow on its branches....and make me smile.  In a couple of years, I'll ask myself why I didn't put Christmas lights on it while it was still small enough to be a doable thing.  And then it will be too tall to reach... and I won't be able to mow it over, no matter how hard I might try.  But I'll smile, because like kids, these trees grow, because of, and in spite of what goes on around it.  And sometimes we are just plain surprised at how much time has passed, and how big they are, and did we miss anything along the way??

Here we are, deep in January 2016, and as of yet, no post from me....  What has happened?  Too many directions I'm pulled.  A new camera, using my phone for pictures to post on Facebook... liking my old camera a little better, but it's not an option... liking my old phone a little better, but that's not an option... computer issues and questions....not necessarily problems, just questions. 

So.... I really didn't craft much for Christmas this year.  That took the pressure off.  I took some wonderful pottery classes this fall and so members of my household were forced to pick some pieces as part of their gift.  It worked out OK.  When I was at the wheel, I was counting up mugs, knowing I needed enough to go around my family once...  I threw a couple of extra, just in case there was a fail in the kiln...and an extra special one for my friend, Judy.  And all took at least a mug from their mama...but there were plates and bowls that left, also.  Microwave and dishwasher safe.  Can't beat that for busy life.

I made some very un-lovely, functional neck warmers for all the guys, too.  Just a double tube of black fleece, but I've found them sometimes better than the scarf, since they don't unwind on you.  Don't get me wrong.  This morning I was glad for my handknit scarf, that I could unwind when I got a little warm, halfway though walking the dog.  But when you are working or skiing or walking the dog, sometimes you don't have an extra hand to wrap back up what the blowing wind has flipped.  Black fleece...washable....dirt-proof...very functional.  The girls got blanket scarves.  All the necks were covered.  I did make those, too.  But it involved cutting them along straight lines and then unraveling 1/2 inch or so on all sides.  I made quite a few of these.  Don't know if they are a hit or not.  Gotta stalk around and see if anyone is wearing theirs.

Well, I'd best get to work or someone will pull my computer plug.
Have a great day!!

Tripping and Traveling...

This fall we took a little trip.  It involved a college visit to Liberty University in Lynchburg VA for our youngest, and a stop at my sister's for the parents.  We had a nice long weekend.  Scott had the chance to golf and we ate at a beautiful winery, worshiped at CORNERSTONE church in Galax VA which I have had the pleasure to do 2 other times.  We lounged around and just enjoyed each others' company.  It was a long trip and I have to admit, it took a looooong time for my knee to recover from all the car sitting.  But it was a good visit.

 From the deck in Fancy Gap
Next time, I get to hold the dog...or turn a different way

Rushing through

Seems a lot of activity, and not a lot of time to post or rest, just keep rushing through...

The guest room is pretty much done.  In all, I painted 3 walls, wallpapered the 4th, along with leaving some of the blackboard paint on that wall.  It turned out pretty cool, as far as I'm concerned.  And I guess that's what matters.  I used a Winnie the Pooh story book, a Bobbsey Twins book, and some pages from the Children of the World, or something like that.  All books were without color.  The Pooh stories had quite a few pictures, and I tried to maximize them.  The Bobbsey book was quite brownish pages, and the other book just threw in some extra pages and pictures of dutch kids and some eskimo ones, I think.  Some staggering and partials and different sizes and sideways application gave me a wall that looks like this...




Overall, it looks like this in the lamplight.  The center of the wall is the chalkboard for messages for the guests...


I have been moving things around in the garage and finally found where I had stashed an old frame.  There were a few special pages in the Pooh book - the dedication page, the starting page, the final page, pages and passages that were perfect for an old, brown, simply carved frame.  With a thin board cut to fit, the pages were layered and Mod Podged down and left to dry.  Then it was fitted into the frame, secured and hung on the wall.  I have loved this frame since I picked it up and can't even remember where.  So glad to finally have a chance to use it.

 Add to that, these two stitched hangings I found at Neckers Company, and another spot is complete.
 And since this room is for travelers, I decided to hang my end box label from a soldier in California, to his wife, back at home.  A box end purchased at the auction of one of my old church guys.  People I knew, from their time of war.
Purchasing a new bed for our room, left us with a king to put in the guest room.  I like to sleep in a king sized bed.  I have one at home.... which makes staying in a double while traveling pretty tight.  And some travelers might have a kid or two, or a dog, so I'm thinking that the king will be ok...even though it doesn't leave a lot of other space for bags and baggage, I'm thinking it's mostly a sleeping room.  How about your guest room?  Is the bed big, or do you have lots of walking around space?  Do you offer closet space?  A dresser or a table?  What do you like as the comforts of home, when you are staying over???

what's been going on...october

Well, we've been practicing some carpentry skills in our church. We ordered up a medium dumpster.  Lee Caflisch told me it would hold 10 pickup trucks full.  That sounded like a lot, but I knew we were starting the process with two big, bad couches, so a medium it was.  There were 4 people first, then the 5th joined in.  Trip after trip.  If it got picked up, there needed to be a good reason for it to stay.  Leftover this, canned potato flakes from the 90's or before.  Broken parts and lost pieces, out they go.  Mostly empty containers, pop cans that have started to leak, out out out!
By the end of the clean up, we had a heap of stuff in that dumpster.  I called Lee and he said we were on the list, and probably would be picked up the next day.  Neat and tidy, that parking lot was for our Saturday event.



 Then we took off to pick up a few supplies.  Some tiles to lay down on bare cement to give us a clean base to set on.
With 18" tiles, this part was pretty quick and easy..
 Add to this, tools that fit the job.  See those snips?  Yep.  I bought them at Ernie Hinsdale's auction.  They are shape and wonderful.  Cut those peel and stick tiles like a hot knife through butter.  A good tape measure and a square, and we were in business.
This bad wall needs to disappear...so we'll find something to cover it up with.

 Those pipes sticking out of the wall, lead to more than our crew wanted to deal with, so a base cabinet was installed over and around these pipes.  Out of sight, neat and clean.


We got the cabinet fitted and then covered the back wall, put a board along the top edge, decided we needed a bit of quarter round since old basement walls are NEVER square.  But, as long as we had the paint, and had painted KILZ on the other wall the last work day, we moved ahead with the priming of the new wall.  Some other fixture deals were located at a screaming deal and now it's just a matter of quarter round and blue paint and vacuuming and cleaning a carpet and attending to some lighting issues,  then moving in and setting up and moving toward a better space to learn and grow closer to God.  Why not join us??

Yarn Along in October


"~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading and I love sharing my projects and current reads here. I would love for you to join me every Wednesday to share a single photo of what you are knitting (or crocheting) and reading too! Share your photo on your blog, on Instagram (#yarnalong), or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us!~" Ginny at Small Things 

Trying to yarn along again, but the bigger problem is the project.  I am traveling to Boston and back on a train and decided this was the perfect time to work on the green Juliete vest.  Affectionately being referred to previously as the 4, 5, or 7 year vest, it has been renamed the Vest From Hell.  It is all out of wack again with the numbers and the patterns and the dang yarn overs.  It is time to rip it back to the place where it was last correct.  That would be a year ago and all the lace bottom ago.  My friend said, DON'T do anything drastic.  I assured her it was wonky enough in the repeated design being off kilter, that I would not wear it.  I said she could rip it back for me and I'd start the design again.  So instead, on my way back home, I'm gonna drag out the soft baby blanket yarn and try a little blanket.   Just as a soft diversion to the nasty vest feeling that I'm having.  I even locked the green vest up in the suitcase, so as not to temp me into trying to fix it...for the third or fourth time....this trip.  Do you ever have those projects that just torment you??  I even went back to ravelry to see if there had been some sort of change made to the pattern that I wasn't aware of sine the original purchase.  None reported.  But lots of lovely vest came off other needles.  I will not be beat!!

 This project for now... and hoping to have a picture of progress by next week.
 My view today.  The autumn leaves are gorgeous today!!  I've several more hours of daylight to enjoy them, too.
I did finish a good book.  I'm pretty deep into Christian Fiction these days.  Can't seem to keep going in so many books, where the language is bad.  And I tend to be a happy ending person.  So this one fit the bill.

 
 Link over to Ginny's page and see what the others are up to....lots of inspiration to be found there.

Make Way...to Boston

We got on a train....haven't done that in a long time....a couple of sight-seeing train trips....a real long trip from Moscow to Kazan...then Kazan back to Moscow... but it's been a long time.... and we rode for quite a while...and when we were done, we were in BOSTON!!
I didn't really mind this mode of transportation.  I'd be better at it next time, knowing what I have to work with.   This trip involved a belated birthday gift of watching the Boston Bruins play hockey on their home ice.  And a walking tour of the Freedom Trail today.  Unfortunately, that also resulted in a manly migraine.  Not on the schedule, but better this evening, then tomorrow on the train.
And our walking tour ended here, in the place that I wanted to visit again...thanks for including them.

Robert McCloskey's Make Way For Ducklings in the Boston Common....

Catching up a Bit...

Guest room- update.

We laugh when we talk about the guest room.  Andrea's room.  It's been painted -  three walls.  The fourth wall is partly painted.  We (I) had the creative idea to use the pallet slats to cover the wall, while leaving a part of Andrea's awesome chalkboard wall showing.  I'd had a bit of a slowdown on the pallet collection, then when I started to get them hauled in, I needed a bit of sawing to get the slats loose.  My brother expressed concern over the amount of pieces of wood (the number of pallets) and the number of holes to put them on the wall and the project got axed.  It is a cool look.  But I'm open to plan B or plan C.  I got onto pinterest and put in focal wall and got some wild ideas.  But the one I'm going with right now, is a wallpaper of books pages.  I have a book I wanted to use.  And Scott got a gift certificate to the local used bookstore, East Branch.  So, after my friend and I had visited for a while, I dragged Jocelyn to the shop, and we found a few more treasures.

I've had the flooring for a week.  You need to order this stuff and it takes a bit to come is, but it came earlier than I had hoped.  And it is supposed to acclimate to the room for a day or two.  And I had put off the floor thinking I'd do the pallets first, but with the pallets off the list, I started the laminate floor.  Yeah.  Last time, didn't I tell you to remind me to get some great knee pads before I did this again.  I like to do these projects.  But they remind me that I don't use these muscles as much as you'd think.  And a spend a few days being still and lame.  But the joy of looking at my completed projects outweighs the aches.  I have the last row to put in and also the thresholds.  And then I had to do other stuff and to go.  But they are on my list when I get back.  Probably Thursday nite. But what is done, looks really, really good.

More good stuff to come....

Scrap & Sew Celebrates 25 times - silver hair and golden hearts

Can you really believe when Scrap & Sew was dreamed up 13 years ago, that we would still be getting together 25 times later??  We've adapted to changing interests... and we're doing OK.  We book a spring and a fall gathering each year.  I'm in charge, so I get to pick the weekend, but we all love to be together, so we make a special effort to hit a weekend when that can happen for most of us.


We pose and pass cameras and phones to the people at the front desk, and they happily snap our photo, to be posted for future memories to be jogged back to this weekend...
Sometimes we have closed eyes, and moving hands, and all kinds of other things, which we go into here (Sue Henry), but we usually end up with a couple of really good pics that capture the mood...

Bringing back the chairs and checking out our pictures...
Sometimes we need to rearrange the furniture a little bit..but we put it back when we're done.  And we laugh and laugh and laugh...as much as we possibly can...cuz we have to make it last until next spring, this special time together...


Renee showing what her picture looked like...
 
 We like to rub it in a bit that Judy is our Senior member...but not by much.  But we do appreciate her input.  You know, she DOES have a lot of experience to draw from ....heeheehee...

 
 Willowe was making huge marks on her To-Do list... yeah, we ignored her after awhile.  Darn overachiever!!

 Cheryl got quite a bit going here, even tho she was sitting across from Kathy...I think her machine was smoking for a while!!  and she had that big smile on her face... I get more enjoyment out of what others get done sometimes, than what I get done myself.  Cheryl has a senior graduating this year, and a graduation gift of special fabrics is her priority right now...
 Such concentration. Such dedication... such encouragement from the chair behind.  Renee was in and out this time.  Her dad has had HOSPICE set up and she was one duty two different chunks of time for Ernie.  He likes Southern Gospel music, so we could here her humming along with her recordings from time to time.

 Sue was suffering from de-PRESS-ion.  Yep, she was sewing little pieces together and then pressing the daylights out of them.  If her pieces had been bigger, I think she would have completed 2 quilts...and probably knit a purse, too.  We are so glad when Sue can join us.  We love her mom, Martha, too. 

 Renee is going to be a grandma for the first time.  Actually, as I'm posting these a bit late, that baby has already arrived...but not when I took this, so Renee was busy knitting tiny booties for Caroline.
 Stephanie was deep in thought.  She had several variety of projects that she brought along.  Thinking projects take concentration.  That's difficult on Saturday night.  That's when you bring out the mindless projects...and just visit.
 Judy likes to show and tell old pictures sometimes.  She is into her family history with her mom.  They visit relatives and get pictures to copy and add to their collection...  and she keeps a book of her grandkids...I believe they number eleven.  She used to be a hooker at our weekends.  She does lovely wool rug hooking, but sometimes it is bulky.  Or we wreck her concentration.  Either way, Scrapbooking is her activity of choice with us these days... And keeping Lucinda in line over there in their corner...
Extra hugs for Lucinda this time....lots of picture sorting and putting them in chronological order for future scraps.  We are all missing her hubby, Eric, these days.  He would always stop to check in on us.  And bring whatever she forgot.  Which wasn't very much, since Lucinda is a spreadsheet, organized wild woman!!

Until April Fools Day....


Tuesday, September 29, 2015

There comes a time, when the youngest in your family is in need of Senior pictures.  And he's a bit... oh, I don't know....not your typical local boy who wants it done in 5 minutes....I told him to get some ideas, so he went to PINTEREST...
  And he sent the the pins to the lady who was going to take the pictures... and she came with 2 daughters, who also had their own pinterest pins....and hours later....yes, quite a few hours later, he came home with an abundance of pictures to choose from.... some on the golf course...
 some in the hallway going up to the pool....along the stone wall...and thne again, maybe just right there on the steps, while the mom holds up a shirt to block out the extra light coming in the window...


And maybe right in the construction area, if the wall is the backdrop you need to get the look that you really, really think might be wonderful...or whatever word this generation using for wonderful...while trying not to fall into holes that are being dug....
And then, there is an over the shoulder shot, taken on a back road, and you realize, yet again, that this year will pass by soooooo fast.  The last chick is getting ready to leave the nest.  Today, we left him at a college for an overnight visit.... we are getting to the place of picking which road to take...not an easy task.  But, you've gotta trust that he will find his way...there's only so much you can do for them.
 And besides - he cleans up pretty good.  Enjoying our last senior year in this house....

Senior day at Wolfpack football...

Today was Senior Day  for the football team.  It is the same school that I attended, but in my day, we had 60 kids in a class.  Not big at all, but bigger than now.  It is sort of a funny thing, but we are the corner of the state and the county.  Our closest schools, pretty equal distance apart, were always the ones we wanted to beat the most.  Our high school rivals.  As our numbers have decreased, it has been harder for us to fill team rosters in sports that take many people.  We have been slowly joining forces, sport by sport.  A few years ago we joined JV football with Sherman, the next year, it was the Varsity team.  The JV from Panama join Sherman-Clymer last year, too.  This is the first year the Varsity Team has been a three school effort.  We are CSP Wolfpack.  When we have enough kids to have our own teams (basketball, volleyball, etc) we are the Pirates of Clymer, the Sherman Wildcats and the Panama Panthers, the same as we've been since the 1930's or so.... but when we play football, run track and cross country, play golf...we are the Wolfpack.  It's working out OK in our house.  Some others are not so keen on it.  But it's our last football season.  We have sweatshirts that say CLYMER PIRATES FOOTBALL....and SC FOOTBALL...and now CSP FOOTBALL.  Probably all collectors' items... Our football players wear digital camo now...pretty neat.
We have the only Clymer senior, there is one Sherman senior, and 8 Panama seniors.  In a season of 7 games, we get 4 home games.  Clymer gets 2 home games, Sherman got senior day today, and Panama will get Homecoming in  couple of weeks.  It's rather weird.  We are a town that really gets behind our teams, like the other 2 towns.  To share the games, and to stand on the enemy side with the rest of your home team parents and fans is an adjustment.  But I'm getting over it.  My player is making new friends, learning how to adjust to this change, and entertaining new parents and coaches!  Probably not a bad skill to practice your senior year, getting ready to go out into the world.

Senior Mom, Tiffany Goldberg, gave the senior moms all digital camo hankies.  I thought, heck, I'm an old hand at this...no problem.  As you can see, I made good use of mine.
Here they go!  And after a loss at Clymer the first week, it was good to record a W on this weeks game!!
