Good morning.

Rainy start to the day again. Alice Ann (cat) is trying to get eh laptop off my lap so she can snuggle. 

I love turkey. Sort of hard to cook a whole bird very often though. Should get  the turkey breast I guess but just don;t think about it. With Dad being a hunter we had a lot of "natural" meats as kids. 

Good to know you're there Patte. 

Mary Alice, I forgot to say congrats on the Drunkard's Path finish.  I think if you look at it hanging or on the bed, you'll see the pattern better. Very nice.

Hi! Mary Agnes.  I am here a couple of times everyday but don't write unless I have something to say.  Love to read what everyone else is doing and seeing all the beautiful projects done by all of you.  Such a pleasant way to start the day.

Good Morning

Hope everyone in Indianapolis  area weathered the tornados.  Weather sure has had it's extremes.  Plus my heart aches for that poor town in central  Italy.

The home sleep study depends on your insurance.  My DH 1st had home study ordered by PCP then had to have study at sleep center ordered by a pulmonary specialist for our medical  insurance to cover.  Love all the little loops you have to jump thru to keep the insurance companies happy.

Rita--Wishing you the best in your very difficult situation. Try not to let your son's issues ruin you.

Never had turtle though on vacation in Florida had a plate of meats from the area. Only specific one I remember is frog's legs but not what the other meats were. When I grew up we had rabbit on occasion when my brother would snare some. DH grew up in a different area so venison was a staple for him. Then moving into the goose flyway we had Canada Goose. So totally agree that what we eat can be/is dictated by where we live.

The stable was also ceramic. Received the greenware as a Christmas gift from my friend.

I wonder why turkey isn't cooked more often. Too many leftovers maybe?

Good Morning, Gifties. It's another beautiful morning in Gotham.

My Mom made that nativity set too. And my Dad built the stable. She didn't have the steadiest of hands so it left a lot to be desired. Then one year my Dad spray painted all the figures gold. It was gorgeous.

Hi to Patte in TX. Always nice to see you pop in.

Can't say I've ever had turtle soup. Closest I've gotten to it is the scene in Babette's Feast when the turtles arrive in Juttland.

Such variety of topics, first I will say for burned on gunk I do a soak with dishwaher soap, even the little pods are fine to use.

My cousin Larry Scott, was a competitior of Arnold and if your interested in pages  of those pics, just google Larry Scott. Don't you know those grease up charectures are just to look at, wouldn't we all rather have the normal guys. He was a pretty nice guy though.

I am having a tough time with depression right now still more issues on going with sons.Makes me want to move to Siberia. I have started some hand projects but can't get my heart in it, this should be the perfect time to sew and I can't get motivated. Will try again tomorrow. I did a small forey out to the garden today, Yellow jackets just as bad as ever. but squash plants are looking pretty as are the beans.

Kathleen arn't these boots left and right or as I look down at mine maybe it is just the velcro buckles that would be different and that wouldn't matter I guess. Hope it goes well for you. Well I am off to bed.

Yeah, the blocks are all sewn together for my Smith Mountain Morning which was begun last Oct at the retreat with Bonnie Hunter. Tomorrow I can lay it out and sew the center together. There is a pieced border that I have yet to cut and assemble, but hey, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Don't recall who the drunkards path quilt belongs to, but congrats on your finish. I really like the colors and pattern they make. And I too am a border type gal. I agree, borders create the perfect frame for the beautiful center focal point.

Never have eaten turtle of any type either. Guess it depends on the area you're in as to types of meat used. Had frog legs without knowing what I was eating. Thought it was part if a chicken wing. And it tasted like chicken.

Barbara, funny story about your Dad and a fish eating turtle. Bet it wasn't too funny at the time.

Will say Happy Birthday to Carol as well. Sounds like you had a wonderful day.

Agnes your Nativity set is beautiful. It's neat that so many people can now enjoy it every year, although I'm sure you miss it some. I too did the ceramics in the 70's and early 80's. Was lots of fun working on them with my mom.

Happy Birthday Carol.

Yum, Turkey and gravy with cranberry sauce is my very favorite meal. My son's also. When he was in school, I would always cook either a turkey or cheeseburger soup that he really liked on the first day back after summer break.  The schools start here on September 7 th.

I didn't know the sleep study could be done at home either till the machine arrived at the house. It is all computerized to record the data and then analyzed and the doctor gets the report.
