Greetings this sunny but still chilly day in northern Ohio. I do believe spring has forgotten about us.
Last Saturday at the Ann Arbor hook in, dear friend Bobbie gifted me this needle book. Stitched to perfection, it is just the sweetest. I'm lucky to have such a talented and generous friend.
Yesterday, another dear friend, Dolly (who adopted pug Eema from me many years ago) and I met for lunch. My belated birthday gift. WOW. A pug puzzle copyrighted 1901. Pugs looked much different than they do today. They had a very pronounced snout that has been bred out of them over the years. Probably not a good thing because the flatter the face, the more breathing issues they can have. I am truly blessed to call Dolly friend :)
I was very good at the Ann Arbor hook in. I only bought a book on hooking eyes from Kris Miller and these yummy (sale) wools from Anne Bond. The middle wool is more bronzy than is showing in the picture. I am trying so hard not to buy wool because the wool room is overflowing.
I will leave you with a bit of humor.
To my friends who enjoy a glass of wine.
And those who don't and are always seen with a bottle of water in their hand.
Ben Franklin said: "In wine there is wisdom. In beer there is freedom. In water there is bacteria."
In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 litre of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. Coli) bacteria found in feces.
In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop annually.
However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (or rum, whiskey or other liquor), because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and fermenting.
Remember: Water = Poop. Wine = Health.
Therefore, it's better to drink wine and talk stupid than to drink water and be full of sh**.
There is no need to thank me for this valuable information. I'm doing it as a public service.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
