Long long long long wonderful wonderful marvelous wonderful day more later.

Meantime. One other Stitches moment yesterday: my water bottle being finished off, I pulled out a juice box–and found to my dismay it had no straw.

even the business end of a crochet hook, they are usually pointed and as a knitter I carry one for picking up dropped stitches. I can see someone saying “ok, how can I make someone unhappy, I’ll take the straws of the juice boxes, and kiddies will scream cause Mom can’t give them a drink”

My housemates are in the habit of coming to my door and asking “hey, Mary, do you have anything like . . . string?”

Yes, yes I do.

Oh, I just heard on the radio today that a college in Arizona is sponsoring debate on Civil Discourse, including Presidents Clinton and Bush. Hurray for Warm Hats, not Hot Heads.

Pointy sticks to the rescue! (again) I’m still recovering from that long weekend/Stitches thing.
