Just to clarify, Mike is knitting the sock for me! He wouldn't be caught dead in pink and yellow socks!

Thank You but as you can see from the pictures I need to get drop at least one person in weight.

NEVER put yourself down Chris, there are enough people in this world willing to do that for you!! If you are happy with you, and DSWMBO is happy with you then don't worry about it! I think you look fantastic in that kilt!!!

Also, here's a pic of the sock Mike finished! Not bad for his first try, eh?
Gina tell Mike I am glad that Steve and I are no longer allow here.

Let us know what you think of the cro-hooks.

Lovely lady not a put down, there are a number of health issues that would improve if I dropped another 50 to 80 pounds.

My DW's cousin is getting married in October. We just got a list of her wedding registers. Looking at the list we would have to take out a 2nd mortgage on our home for the cheapest item on the list.

RHSS= Red Heart Super Saver. I just finished up making "spawning mops" out of all of my black.

Sock on,
Are you my mother? My parents had their 23rd anniversary yesterday!

In an unrelated vein, we used to use "rock on" as a command for rock climbing to let each other know who was on the wall. "On belay?" "Belay on!" "(your name here) on rock!" "ROCK ON!"

But pie tastes yummy... and as my dad will tell you, peach pie has peaches in it and is therefore a fruit.

Some people need to get real, honestly. Two of my friends are getting married next summer and while I don't know where they are registering, both are frugal individuals conscious of the fact that their family and in particular their friends have little money to spare. Yes, some people can afford some big items... some people can afford a blender.
I suppose it's considered rude to give the newlyweds $5 in a recycled birthday card (You know, the one that says "Happy 5th Birthday from mom and dad" which has been crossed out and now reads "Congratulations on your wedding, wishing you many happy years together, etc." if they register for absurdly expensive items?

OK I've been gone a few days, here, but not on KH. Anyway I love the 'shoes' & the KIP pics & think that people that ask for expensive wedding gifts are crazy! I registered for things from $.99 to $100+ just to give people a wide range, I think our most expensive gift was a 5 piece luggage set that we used on our honeymoon & will put to use on our trip the next couple days & have used many times in between. I agree Ann, with Jess, Carey & Dustina-enough is enough. blood relatives or friends, goodness people...I like the idea of Jess & Carey, use a blank card, or a recycled one & write congrats, please let our presence be your presents, & then do a master card commercial thing & write down, tux rental $...
Dress for rehersal dinner & wedding...
plane tickets $...
shower gift $...
being at your brother & sister-in-laws wedding, PRICELESS!
love ya,
Ann & DBF (sorry can't remember his name)

Dustina your friend is in our prayers, you didn't dump, you allowed us to know your worries.

Thanks for all the encouragement, I needed/need it. I've figured some of the math out, but need help still with some...not sure how to use the darn calculator with a million buttons.
Jess or whoever, maybe you could help me understand how to put this equation into the calculator? Sterling silver contains silver & copper metals. if a sterling silver chian contains 18.5g of silver and 1.5g of copper, what's the percent of silver?
so since this is a practice problem they say step one is to find out what's asked for, %
then what's the given? 18.5g &1.5g
ok so then they say 18.5g/(18.5+1.5)g X 100% = 92.5%
how do I put that into the calculator I've done it as typed above (without the ()) & it doesn't work out to 92.5% am I missing something?
thanks in advance
Gina that vicks on the feet sounds wierd but it works wonderfully! thanks.
Jackie I used to crochet barbie clothes and pillows etc, but never saved any dolls or clothes. And have yall looked at Barbies recently? they're not the same, they look funny & 90% of them dont have clothes on-just swim suits...what happened to all the pretty gown dresses and stuff?
love y'all! we're goin on our trip tomorrow, leavin about noon and will be back Thurs evening, talk to yall on Friday.
