The cartoon...

Sorry, just click on the cartoon and it will enlarge then go back to blog. The fishies wil follow your cursor...maybe. I'm still working on that.

Ah Summertime, baseball and knitting...

It has been a banner weekend for knitting and playing! Friday night many of the knitters from Knitters and Hookers, Monday night group at Panera's went to see the triple A Aeros (Cleveland Indians farm team) play the Mets triple A in Akron. Gorgeous night - great ball - we won! And lots of good knitting. I have some pictures I haven't uploaded yet but I'll try tomorrow. I was able to knit on my red sock from the time I sat down until the top of the eighth inning.

Funniest thing:

My friend Julie and I got to the park which is just a dream park, Julie went to the ladies room and I saw an elderly usher standing doing nothing so I asked him where our seats were.

"These are handicapped seats."

"Umm where are our seats?"

"Over here." He points to an empty space next to two seats at the top of the first section.

"There are no seats here."

"There's space for your wheel chair."

"We're not in wheel chairs. We want regular seats. You have the row wrong or something."


"Well where do we sit?"

"Right there." ARRRGGHH! Julie comes out of bathroom and asks if anything is wrong.

"No. Don't. Ask. Him. Anything. Follow me." I found a nice stadium guy by the ticket box, he got us new tickets, let us keep our coupons for Chic-fil-a sand. and shake and we sat down.

Cheryl asked if we wanted to sit next to them and we said yes because no one was sitting there, but the usher kept giving me the evil eye and Julie said she was fine where she was and the usher kept staring at me so I stared back. Later when we were knitting, he came over and asked us if we noticed that we were now sitting in the shade and that was because he made the sun move. Really. I just knitted and nodded but Julie being a dear had a nice little conversation with the old badger.

Ohhhh. The fireworks at the end of the game were beautiful. Very zen - here and gone in a blink but so wonderful. They lasted for a good bit.

Tomorrow: Why do men make noise like moose?

It worked! The post udpated and my photo of sock from "Box of Socks." This is a good thing. Another pic from same "BOS."


Ok this has gone on way too long! Gave it a good try yesterday with a long comment, etc but for some reason, (my fault I'm sure) nothing happened. So I'm being brief and making coffee for crazy Becky so let's see what happens today.
Yarn over: term used by knitters to create holes in lace knitting. I live next to the Cuyahoga Falls River and I imagine thousands of strands of yarn crossing the river and falls...
