Good day to everyone! It is a good day, a better day...like R.E.M. says..."hold on!" Not that I am nutting up or anything like that (you can smile), but having my Dad hurt is painful. Thank you for ALL of your sweet and thoughtful comments, the prayers, the concern and the understanding. He is doing better, but his doctor is keeping him in the hospital for observation, more tests and more meds. Today I am going to visit and am going to let him know how wonderful all of you are and share the comments with him. I know that you will touch his heart...really lift his heart!!
On a lighter note, thought I'd share some little nuts..acorns to be exact. This little arrangment has my all too familiar pair of squirrels, some new fabric acorns and the real deal. These little buggers just are so happy with some quick fixins'! Next to them sits a little candy jar full of acorns and their hats. See the sampler? See the date? That is one of the many moons ago creations that I spoke of here. It was fun to stitch and the thing that I like about it most is the saying and, of course, the little acorns.
Ok...you usually won't find me on a soap box and that isn't what this blog is intended to be about. BUT!!!! Allow me to vent, please..... I do believe that one of my biggest pet peeves are those who TAIL GATE! No, not the fun party people gettin' their fun on before a game, but those who follow wayyyy too close whilst driving their car. Are they NUTS? I took some pictures recently of some mad drivers on the freeway. Keep in mind these people are driving 65-80 MPH on the freeway! Reaction time? Is there such a thing when their bumper is practically touching the guy's in front of them?! My dad is a retired Chippy and he taught me to keep one car length in front of me for every MPH. Ok, going 65 would = 6.5 car lengths. Makes good sense and also gives you ample reaction time. Look at these pics...do you see how close they are? Thank God my husband is a good driver. His dad told him you should never have to apply your brakes on a freeway, unless, of course, you have to come to a stop. I just wish people would not be in such a hurry. So many accidents these days are "pile ups" - now I can see why. Ok, I am done now....y'all be safe!!
