1st – the material
While meeting up in the old hometown recently, my sisters and I took advantage to save some postage and exchange some belated and early (depending on who you were) birthday gifts, and other miscellany.
I handed over a ‘for real and honest’ wool quilt batt for Dearest Sister, and some handspun, handdyed Jacob for Wisest Sister.
From Dearest, I received a cutie pie Longaberger basket filled with shortbread cookies. What? No photo? No shortbreads? Whatever…I have already eaten them in my efforts to not gain poundage before
From Wisest, I received a stack of these vintage knitting magazines.
(You will want to clicky for biggy, as these models are stylin'...)
All for some wool!
2nd – the verbal
Dearest’s Sister Hubster leaves the 90th birthday party to watch one of two car races that afternoon, the Indy and some Coca Cola NASCAR (fill in the blank with mileage).
Me: I don’t know why…all it is, is driving fast in left-handed circles…
Him: (shaking his head as he leaves) I know…
Later that day…
Him: I thought about it and I decided you are right. NASCAR is boring. Nothing but going round in circles that same way. I have decided to take up a new hobby…
We shared much good laughter, because he scored with that one!
