Oh worsted weight, I’ve forgotten your joys. I’ve been knitting with fingering for about a month (with the exception of fiddly twiddle mitts). This is my Viktoria beginning. Berroco on size 8 circs. The flash makes it look like a safety patrol orange but it is softer than that, I promise. I’ve got a LOT of knitting ahead of me. I shall not whine.
My Betty’s Pies cup has seen better days. She’s well loved. I’ve abandoned the Keurig. I’ve decided this is cleaner, simpler and frees me of trash guilt. It does make me WAIT a bit longer for my cuppa, but the coffee tastes great. I think it is good for me to practice a bit of waiting. I tap my foot and fingers when I put my chip card in the block at the store. Sigh, data has to go all the way up to the satellite in the sky and down again. Really Kathy B? I shall not whine.
The produce stands now have pumpkins! Oh fall I love thee so much. I have no idea what one does with an APPLE gourd and my checkout lady just shrugged. She said, “Decoration I think” .
Finally, some of you will not be surprised by this at all. I was driving down the interstate when a truck merged from the on ramp. I saw a tail. Then I saw a full grown Siberian Husky standing ON boxes, in the back bed of a pick up truck. The truck was going no less than 80mph. This poor dog was barely keeping its balance.
I called 911.
“911 what’s your emergency”
“There is a pick up truck on the expressway with a dog in the back of the truck! I’m an animal lover” I proceeded to give them all the identifiers for the vehicle.
“Ma’am there is no law that says you have to restrain an animal in a vehicle”
“But, but but”
“Ma’am, I just want you to know the dog won’t jump, Okay?”
Really? What a bunch of yahoos. I’m not asking for a carseat for the dog, and I certainly understand crates in the back of a truck for working dogs and hunting dogs. But loose? Standing on boxes that were higher than the sides of the truck. ? There ought to be a law….
