OksewGlad, the skidsteer is very interesting...so different from the pitchfork we used in the old days...
Sixteen hours on the road and three for visiting is a LONG day; good thing you all are so young!!
Hang in there, Honchey, the days will get better. Maybe its possible for you all to move to NC soon, so you can get back to a normal routine. Guess its back to hand quilting or hand work to help pass time.
Everyone carrying credit cards: watch your balances and charges!!! I am always so careful of statements, etc., shedding all papers. We are slowly paying off balances and not charging, But one card was charged for airline tickets!!! It was monitored by the company (State Farm) who called me, and thus correcting the fraudulent charge. Cards were killed, so old ones cannot be used again...its that time of year again when it happens the most.
