Lonnie just gave me a cool new SURPRISE :-)
I was doing laundry and heard the door open and thought, "What's Lonnie doing home @ this time of day?!" He calls out, "What are you doin'?"..I reply, "Laundry, what are you do...?!" as I look up to see him standing there with this huge 16"x19" HDTV/monitor combo for the computer and he is sweetly saying..."I thought that you might like this when you were on computer with your knitting friends and looking at knitting stuff." I of course was stunned and said, "uh...WOW, YES I WOULD!!" And I was correct...it's like you are in the LYS looking around and you can reach out and touch the yarn!! I have the VERY BEST HUSBAND in the whole world :D!!
So, I'm off to order some addi's and then go window shopping

Wow! What a fantastic suprise. My husband already holds the title of best husband in the world, but if I had to pick a runner up, Lonnie would definitely get the title

They are WONDERFUL (they being my sweet man and this HDTV/monitor)!! I have been cruising through the aisles of LYS all over the world since he set this up...it looks so real that I can imagine the smell & feel of the yarn....IT'S WAY COOL 8-)
LOL, then I realized that I had gotten virtually no knitting done bc I was daydreaming about it

You lucky girl!! I am green, but very happy for you!!

Hey, is he available for coaching?? I have a pretty great hubby already, but in the gift department he's the pits (and believe me, he knows it, this isn't something I am saying behind his back at all!) In fact, last year, he not only didn't get me a birthday gift (I've gotten used to that) He COMPLETELY forgot :( I was soooooo sad.

So, what do you say? Coaching?? Pretty please??
