Happy Birthday, Rocky!!

Just in case Rocky would read this, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Today I went to IHOP for lunch. When I first got there, I ran into a lady I use to work with at LVB. Talked to her for a little while. After she left I ordered. Just as my food arrived, another couple eating there got up to leave and it was Jim and Kathy Hatke. They sat down at my table and talked for quite some time. Before they left, Dan Schafer's brother Walter and his wife walked in. A few years ago, I did some sewing for her. So, about the time Jim and Kathy left, I was finished eating, so I went and visited with the Schafers for awhile. I probably spent more than an hour in there. But, enjoyed my day.

Yesterday, Kristin and Carrie (Kristin's Matron-of- honor) came into town to go to David's Bridal and do a little shopping. They asked me to join them. I did. What fun. Some really beautiful gowns. Afterwards we ate at The Hunter's Pub. So, after lunch today, I went to JoAnn's to see what they had. This JoAnn's is not a good store. Too bad that it really is all we have. When we shop for fabric for the attendants dresses, we will go to Indy.

Happy Birthday to Lu Ann!!!

With Valentine's Day and her birthday next to each other, they are making it one. She took the day off work yesterday, and they drove to Columbus. There is something there she wanted to do.

Yes, it was Friday the 13th the day she was born. But it was lucky for me. What a daughter she is. I called her yesterday, and today I received a text message saying, "Happy Valentine's." Would you believe she turned the big 50? I don't remember it like it was yesterday, but it's difficult to believe it's fifty. Time flies when you are having fun.

Hope everyone received a Valentine from their valentine.

I have to buy a new washer. This one doesn't spin out very well anymore. They could replace/repair the bearings, but it's 17 years old.

Westfield, IN

As most of you know, I usually go to "Knit Nite" at Barns & Noble on Tuesday evening. One of the ladies was telling about this neat yarn shop in Westfield. (Well, first of all she said Crawfordsville. She couldn't seem to remember where she had been.) So, yesterday I took an old classmate and we went to Westfield. Another old classmate (now I'm not saying old as in age, but old as in the past) lives in Westfield. So I took Mary Lu with me and went to Joan's house first. And while I shopped Mary Lu visited with Joan cause neither had any interest in yarn. After I finished my shopping, we went to lunch at a very nice place close to Joan's house. We had a good time and, yes, I bought me some yarn. More than I need, but it was fun just the same. For some reason I feel I'm a yarnaholic. I bet none of you would guess that. I got home in time for Karli to come here. She is going to a dance the end of the month, and the dress she is wearing needs adjusting. She is such a cutie.

Like an idiot, I didn't take a map with me and almost got lost. I usually go 52 to 47. East on 47 to 421 to 32, and E on 32 to Joan's house. But I tried a different way, and it didn't work. And, without the map, I had to call Joan to correct my error. But we were close enough to Joan's house that she was able to tell us how to get there. You'd think I'd know better than to go on the road without a map. (sigh!!) After I got home I got out a map to find out where I went wrong.
