What was up with Aunt Em???

LiLi decided she wanted to be Dorothy for Halloween & my first thought was "How easy is that!"
As usual I was so wrong!!!  I was so excited when I went to the store as I not only snagged the last 2-3/4 yds of blue & white gingham, I got an end of bolt discount!  Then also snagged the last packet of blue rick rack.  It gets better!  I ran next door to T*rget & got the last pair of ruby red slippers in her size!
Then I went home & started sewing & discovered Aunt Em must have thought she was Betsy Ross.....look at those sleeves! Notice the straps & trim cut on the bias!
This is on the have to make this!  It's cut on the bias!  Then pressed like bias tape before being sewn on!  I still have scars!  Aunt Em was an "overachiever"!
I could have skipped that part. 

Would anyone have noticed if I did?

But you know me.

 I didn't.

 I guess that makes me an "overachiver" as well!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Work, cat bites. hospital.....

After a long winter I went back to work on Thurday & as usual it was crazy with the phone ringing off the wall!  The weather wasn't that great but golfers in the northeast are like caged animals who are finally free!  We had good weather predicted for the weekend & I was scheduled to work both days.  After a very long day Saturday I finally got done around 8 pm & was meeting Popster & Jess in Ballston Spa at a surprise birthday party for Jeff & Colby.  Jess met me in the parking lot & said she was leaving as she had also worked all day.  She showed me her arm where she had been bitten by a cat earlier at work.  She had gone to urgent care & they gave her antibiotics & she went back to work.
Before I left for work Sunday at 5:30am I woke her up to look at it & didn't like the way it was swelling up.  I told if it didn't look better when I got home at lunch we were going back to urgent care.

This is what it was looking like when we got th…
