Good morning. Well Pogo and I got up early and took Janice to work. We couldn't go to JoAnn's Fabric store because they were not open yet, so we went to Ocean State Job Lot instead and bought bird seed. We even got an extra bag for Deanne's birds.
Pogo found a few cute things to put away for Christmas for his little friends, and I bought a few things for the house. All in all it was a good shopping trip. We got home just in time before the heat became too oppressive.
While we were at the store, I watched a guy get out of his car and go into the store to shop, leaving his dog in the car. This makes me nervous so I stayed outside the store and kept watch to make sure the dog was alright and to see if the guy would come right back. He did not. I finally asked a person going into the store to ask the clerk or manager to call the police before it was too late for the dog. It had already been fifteen minutes.
Finally a clerk came out to get the license plate number of the car, and he went in and paged the customer. After a total of twenty two minutes, the guy came out and got into his car. It was hot and he had to open all the windows. I wonder what made this jerk think that his dog was comfortable all that time in a very hot car!!!!! Next time, I just might call the police myself. This is just not right!
Yesterday, several packages arrived containing some craft items that I had ordered, including a couple of stand up dolls. This is good because now I can try the dress on the doll to see what adjustments I need to make. Hopefully, not too many.
I'll tell you one thing. The ruffles on the underslip take forever to do. I spent an hour on the first ruffle and did not make it all the way around the row. Time to put this down and give my eyes a rest. Here's a photo of the slip ruffles that I'm working on. The ruffle stitches are trebles.
A week or so ago, Joe came home from work all excited about something he had made there. A co-worker had showed him how to make the game "Yardzee." It's the same as "Yahtzee" but the dice are made of wood and are bigger so that you can play it in the yard. I mentioned that Deanne loved playing "Yahtzee" so yesterday he came home with another set that he made for her. She's going to love these. Joe, thank you so much.
Today, Janice gave me a bowl of stuffed shells that she and Jazzy made last night. Seeing as how I did not have breakfast this morning, I ate these shells for brunch. Oh my, delicious!! I have to say I love being spoiled this way.
After work this afternoon, Deanne will be picking me up and we are going shopping (or just browsing) at the gun shop. Hopefully we'll find something we like and can start back to practicing at the range again soon. I'll have to look into the gun cleaning class. We really should know how to take care of our weapons.
Well, that's about all my news for this morning. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
