Amen, Diane. Well said. A day we'll never forget.
CINDY - Happy Great Gramma!! I know you'll love the little guy! I actually have heard of someone named Cannon before. What fun, a brand new baby hot out of the production chamber. Snuggle time! Oh, by the way - a duck walk. You asked. Squat down (like I can't do anymore) and then you move your feet forward - walk while squatted. MOST unladylike!
VAL - How do you usually wear your long, long hair?
KATY - your bundt cake sounds kind of black foresty. And delicious, even though I'm not too much of a chocolate fan. . If Chriss does't get by there, please send me her piece!
MARY Q - Those FGV quilts definitely aren't ones you whip out in a week, but they are a fun project to work on in between all the other projects we do and so pretty when finished. Your tree skirt is going to be awesome!!! Those gnomes are so cute! And yes, Bill's been pretty occupied, but he's happy to do it for Ernie. We are getting prepared to go to Court to petition for involuntary hospitalization for Vicki. But she went on the attack again Saturday so we filed APS report and they said they are definitely going to look into it and come out to evaluate her physical, mental, and environmental status. (I think it was the rats that won them over!) so we are giving them the chance to take care of it first. We'd rather not be the ones to get her committed if we don't have to.
I think Bill wants to split wood today. We haven't circled back to that chore yet. But he has some more phone calls to make first, and is expecting a couple as well re Ernie's transfer. I haven't made a plan for me yet. I'll stack wood and probably do a little yard work and start bringing in my yard art. I want to get it done before the rains come for real.
Wishing us all full bobbins!

Prayers for the families effected by September 11.
Maryz, don't even try to sneak my Katy cake. back away girlfriend.
Maryq, is next week the week? do I get my elf next week? Just a warning, if she doesn't have her hints posted, and to quote an 8 year old Marilyn. You get what you get and you don't throw a fit.
Work time for me, Have a great day.

Maryz - thanks for duck walk explanation - good grief! LOL Good luck with the Vicki thing and it really would be nice if the APS took care of it instead of you but if it turns out that you have to do it at least you have your ducks in a row.
Chriss - you are so funny about your secret santa.
I am a great grandma. Hannah is doing fine - just sore. Gavin was such a trooper - I was very proud of him - and kind of surprised. Neither one of them know the first thing about taking care of a baby so that has me a little worried. I had to show Gavin how to burp Cannon so now he knows that. So today is back to the old grind.
I hope we can all fondle fabric today.

Prayers for all effected by the three attacks on our country. It still is unbelievable. God bless.
I want to get my post in before Kimberly Skypes me at 9. She is doing much better, hand very little pain & the wound on her leg no longer needs the visiting nurse. And now for the 3ed time she's in the beginning of
come off the pain meds.
I've not been up to much besides keeping her company & knitting.
Diane......thank you for starting us off today & all the quilts you make.
Flo......may we never forget & pass it on to the young.
Maryz......it is so sad to think Vicky's family are not caring for her. In the long run I hope she gets the proper care thanks to you. While I was out a few days ago I saw lots of little areas of red & gold leaves.
Cindy......congratulations on the birth of a great grand baby!!
Chriss.....are you two really going to fight over a piece of cake? Have a a fast day at work.
Love & Prayers.....Kathy

Not much planned for today. Have some errands to run this morning including getting a Fairview Apache shirt to wear to the football game Friday night. My DGS play for them and they are the rivals of the team my DS2 played on when he was in school. Need to get a new floor lamp for my puzzle table. My old one finally "bit the dust".
Well better get going. Will come back later and read all of your posts. Have a good day.

Yes, we must never forget! There are many still suffering and mouning the loss of loved ones. Many prayers for the brave first responders, who without a moments thought, run to help one in need. We are a blessed nation with many freedoms, let us never forget!
Should be a quiet day around here. Poured down rain accompanied by thunder and lightning all night. The horse field on the other side of my back fence had standing water, but that has soaked in. No mowing the lawn today.
I started pulling the fabrics for my November wall hanging. I will work on that today. Didn't make the milk run yesterday, so that is a must today.
Hugs and prayers,
