Okay so maybe I know a little but it's enough to get me in trouble and now Cindy. I went by her home to lend her my advice of sorts. She said I helped clear up some of her questions. I figured I had probably confused her even more. I need to be sure and have her show me her finished product.
I was reading Just Let Me Quilt Blog recently and found out that in September 1982 that Ronald Reagan declared it National Sewing Month.
Interesting. I guess I better make the best of what's left of the month. So many projects. What, Where do I begin. All this is or has be slated for specific quilts and are in various stages of the quilting game. I must work faster. I get side tracked toooo easily. As I've gotten older I seriously think I've developed ADHD.
For something crafty here's a picture of mine and Pamela's Red Neck Wine glasses we made one weekend when she was home.
Oh darn I'll have to drink this all by myself since she's not home when I'm taking the picture.
Saturday night we went to Main Street Crossing and saw Kinky Freidman. What a hoot! Mom and Joe joined us. This was a first.
David found his album Lasso from El Paso and took it with us to get Kinky to sign it.
Kinky looked at that album and said whoa that is old. LOL! David got the album back in 1974 or 75.
A majority of the songs he sang last night were from that album like everyone's favorite.... Ben Lucas.. Well okay maybe not favorite but definitely funny.
Haven't heard this one well the main
chorus line is "Ole Ben Lucas had a lota mucas...." According to Kinky he wrote it back when he was 10 or 11. Sounds about right. And the songs go on. We never laughed so hard so much.
One of the last things he did was read out of a book he wrote called Heroes of a Texas Childhood: Kinky Friedman, Kinky wrote about his childhood heroes like Barbara Jordan and Willie Nelson etc. The passage he read was about his father Tom Freidman the navigator.Very nice tribute to his dad. I was gonna buy the book but my mom did and said she'd pass it on to me when she finished.
Oh and did you know he has his own Tequila called "Man in Black" Only sold in Texas and portions of the proceeds go to help benefit the Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch.
May have to try some since I do like my margarita's and I also already like my salt and lime... All I need is the Tequila shots.
And coffee.. he has his own line of coffee. We find it at the American Man Cave now located in Brenham. Bruce aka Cave Man closed the Bellville store.
Kinky came down and shook our hands and said howdy at the end of the show before heading over to the table with his CD's, Tshirts and book. Loved his show with his stories, songs and jokes. I might have to vote for him if he runs for governor again. ;o)
I know this is a real shocker but I'm actually posting something that is recent and not a week old or more.
Remember my 4 little baby bunnies that were born in my back yard well one stayed. I've named it Mopsie.
It lives in our side flower beds inside the fence.
It came out tonight while David's sister and a friend stopped in for a visit.
Isn't he cute?
So the evening ends on a beautiful note and Monday is not far away. Grrrrr.
So until next blog......................
