Gotcha!

My dad came yesterday for a visit and here he is joking around with the DD.


A dear non-computer friend, Regina, sent a suprise belated college gift to the DD. She received some cookies, candy and new pink college shirts.















Regina is a very sweet friend and a survivor of WW 2 war-torn Germany. The DD and I cherish her friendship.
Her stories of survival are a reminder of how we as Americans need to support our troops as they defend and protect our freedom and liberty.







We heard a meow from the hallway and caught Miss Aurora with a skein of yarn. We wondered where she was taking the yarn. An hour later we found it. Under my bed! Seems there was a nice little pile of yarn carried by the Cat Burglar. You would think that I would miss the yarn but (ahem) you have no idea how much stash I actually have hidden.....er.........stashed around here.
Which reminds me, I am knitting from stash these days. Some of it out of frugal necessity and some if because I couldn't knit all of this stash in my lifetime.

p.s. To Mr. Bettis' attorney: this by no means excuses Mr. Bettis in any way shape or form. He found a bag of treats during the night and proceeded to devour the entire bag. So he is not off the hook.

Cat burgler, SNOL. And Mr. B was just hungry. ;)

I love friends like that. I'm glad you've had lots of time with the DD!

See, Mr. Bettis isn't the *only* one. ;-) Okay, I'll be quiet now.

Yea - well tell Mr. B that somebody in my house took an entire package of muffins off the counter and ate them. Personally I blame JB for leaving them where the dogs could get them - but what do I know? Or maybe don't tell Mr. B and give him any ideas.

I notice you were too busy taking photos of the Cat Burgler to be mad at her! g

That's cute. Not that I'm endorsing critters hiding yarn from us...

I'm just hoping my box manages to get there before DD goes back. I wandered out without it this morning, and MJ is having (minor) surgery tomorrow, so I have no idea when she'll work again...

Sweet package for DD...

Just think of all the "ah-ha" moments you'll have finding yarn you forgot you owned!

My Hubby's aunt lived through WWII in Germany, she was so afraid that she was going to have to join the Hitler youth. My MIL also talks about it as a young child growing up there during Hitler's reign.
So, you have a kitty cat who loves yarn, too? I know the feeling. My Ody loves yarn so much he is starting to hoard it in his kennel. Grr!
