Been busy...

It's been a while since I posted here because life has swept me along with the tide for a while.

It's time to catch up.

Go ahead and get that snack and drink. Let the dog out, I'll wait.

Back already? Ok, here goes...

Stephanie worked really hard to make me a scarf for Christmas. She made Karen run around to get just the right color yarn to match the stripe on my knit cap.

(Hey, I look like Orson Welles' heavier brother...)

Several years ago we were in PA for the holidays and were surprised by a snow storm. Since none of us had hats or gloves, we made a quick trip to Walmart. The only hat I could find was a hunting cap with camo on one side and hunter orange on the other.

While I wear it with the camo on the outside, sometimes an orange stripe shows. Stephanie decided she wanted to make me a scarf that coordinated with the stripe and voila' I have a bright new scarf (emphasis on the bright).

It is a wonderful scarf. The stitching is even, the length and width are great and it keeps my neck very warm. The work she put into it really shows.

Thanks Stephanie!

I like the scarf. Sarah always wants me to get one but I don't know if I can pull it off. Good color, not really hunter orange which is nice but still you shouldn't be worried about getting shot while walking in the woods. In downtown Charlotte....well that's another story.

Glad you're back to blogging. It's been way too quiet!

Orange is the colour of creativity I believe (in Eastern philosophy) So Daughter knows Father. Back in my radio days, Upper Management painted our control room orange overnight. THAT was hideous. But your scarf is a work of art!

I'll bet Stephanie's got some yarn left...

Not back completely, but thanks, I hope to catch up soon.

Oh, it's creative alright. Darn management... be careful, YOU'RE management now. :^)
