Gina, YIKES! How old are DD and BF? I'm sure any daughter of yours probably has a good head on her shoulders. Hang in there, mom.

Carey, they're 21 (DD) and 22 (BF). I'm just not sure how I feel about the BF. He's very nice and is a Christian, but is very concerned with how he looks and sometimes dresses rather weird. He is of Indian descent and his parents kicked him out of the house for awhile when he became a Christian. They're Jainists and vegetarians and were VERY upset that he now eats meat and no longer buys into their religion. (He loves to eat here b/c I serve meat!) DD has still not met his dad b/c he would be VERY against the relationship, insisting that his son marry an Indian girl. We had a good conversation with DD about it and talked about how you marry a family, not just an individual and she's very open to considering our concerns. She IS a great kid with a good head on her shoulders, but she is "In LOVE!" (and I'm sure they both have those raging hormones!) and that sometimes clouds your judgment!

they're done!
Mom & Dad are leaving next weekend to go to Vallecieto Lake, CO and today's high there was only 69' so I figured I'd better get these darn fingerless gloves finished. And re-knit the right hand fingers & thumb. So I came home after getting the cat's rear end shaved & put on a movie for the kids & like a mad woman. I'm pleased to say they're done & all ends are woven in & the fingers on the right hand are re-done

Gina, wow, I see your concern! It's so true about marrying a family, not just a person. I'll say a prayer for them, too.

Julie, the gloves look great!

Dustina, I don't think I could eat something once I had been petting it, either.

Thank you all for prayers for DD and her BF. We keep talking and will continue to do so!

Dustina, Home-grown beef is SO good! You need to see it as an investment in the feeding of your family, not as a pet! The kittens are the pets, the beef is the beef. BTW, Cows are for milk and have had calves. You keep them around because they produce milk and CAN be pets. If the ones you have are female and have never calved, they are heifers (pronounced heffer). (Can you tell I grew up around them?)
So here's some cattle humor for you that the kids might like:
How does a farmer keep track of all the cattle?
With a cow-culator!
What do you call a bull thatís sleeping?
A bull-dozer!
Whatís the most important use of cowhide?
It holds the cow together!
Where do cows go to dance?
The meat ball!

Julie, your fingerless gloves look fantastic! SO nice!

Christine, Ann, Jackie, Sue, Jess, Chris, everyone who hasn't posted lately... how are you?

Where are all you people?Enjoying summer?

I'll be heading to WA tomorrow. It's my parents 50th wedding anniversary next week. They're renting a BIG house near Leavenworth, WA to get my sisters and families together. I hope it goes well. My oldest sister is single and hasn't ever really learned how to live with other people. I just found out she's already at my folks' house so we'll get virtually NO vacation time without her around. I love her, but she drives us all crazy with her bossiness. Ugh. But, DS is there and we'll get to spend a couple of weeks with him, so that's good!

Hi everyone.

Dustina: Congratulations on the house. How exciting for you. Glad the children had fun at the pool. As for the cows, I could not have them around all the time and then have them for meat supply. I can't even think about it, I don't eat much meat anyway, but that would be impossible for me. I certainly am not a country girl.

Gina: Have a good trip. Don't worry about DD. I am sure she has a good head and won't rush into things.

Carey: Look forward to seeing pictures. That is a great thing to do.

Julie: The gloves look great.

Hi Lisa, Christine, Rosalie, Jess, Chris and anyone else I have missed.

I haven't really had a chance to catch up, I have been really busy and my computer was out of action for a while. Still no knitting but I did at least get yarn and needles out to start again. I have been making cards to see if they will sell at the scrapbook store's sidewalk sale on Saturday.

I almost forgot! Just because she's so cute (if I do say so myself!)... here's a picture of Abby in her ballet recital costume.
