My dear late MIL always told me I'd get my reward in heaven in cases like this!

On another note, when I put in the word sashing, my spell check says it's not a word.
So now it's not only the framing for a square but also now not a word? Oh no, what will we call it and how will we spell it. The agony, the agony. lol. heheheheheh. :) :)

Sounds like you handled it just fine!
There must be one in every family, because I have a sister like that too. Just can't live up to her standards or perfections, so she disclaimed me as her sister. Doesn't want me in her life at all. So sad!!!!
oh oh....we don't have the same sister do we????? :shock: :shock:

I had taken photos of the area from the back porch of the new house, and some of the pictures showed the mountains across the valley from our house (the house itself was also up a mountain a ways.)

Anyway... I had made a scrapbook page with the photos and was sharing it with some ladies I had been acquainted with. The scrapbook page was titled "our new house". Here is the conversation (or as close as I can remember it).

woman: "I thought you said your new house is in Pocatello."

me: "It is in Pocatello. Why?"

woman: "There are no mountains in Pocatello. If your new house is in Pocatello, these pictures could not be from your new house."

me: "I admit that there are no mountains actually IN Pocatello, since the city is mostly in a valley between several mountains. Our new house is up the side of one of the mountains, so it is kind of in the outskirts of Pocatello."

woman: "No. There are no mountains anywhere near Pocatello. Why don't you just show us pictures of your REAL new house? Is it really that bad?"

me: "I am sorry to disagree with you, but these really are pictures from our new house, and there really are mountains around Pocatello. Perhaps you can come visit us once we are moved in so you can see for yourself."

other woman: "It has been a long time since I have been to Pocatello, but I am pretty sure Christie is correct."

first woman: "Well... those must be NEW Mountains then!"

Can you imagine how hard it was for me (and most of the rest of the group, I am sure!) to not laugh at this?!? "NEW MOUNTAINS"?!?! REALLY!?!? Some people!!! LOL!!!!!
Yea...I remember quite clearly....when I lived in Montpelier Id, we came over Fish Creek Pass (7200 ft), down, down, down into Lava Hot Springs, and before you could shake your little tail, you were in Pocatello. I mean sure seemed like mountains to me...but then I was born and raised in the flat corn fields of Iowa, so what flat lander could tell the difference between old and "new" mountains??? :roll: :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Honestly, sometimes people say the stupidest things!!!!

My own experience with this came from a Doctor one night in the hospital.....I was a midwife for many, many years, and one night one of my ladies had to head to the hospital to have her baby (I only did homebirths). This doctor and I (after the baby was born) got into a "heated discussion" about whether there is one bag surrounding the baby...or two. (There are two...the inner bag is called the amnion, and the outer bag is called the chorion. You can separate them)...he swore up one side and down the other that I was just a stupid midwife that didn't know anything...you should have seen the look on his face when I grabbed a pair of gloves and promptly separated the bags before his eyes!!! Priceless :lol: :lol:

Stories like that are EXACTLY why I birthed my 3 with a midwife.

On the topic of whether words are words- my grandmother as child was often called out for the fact what she said or wrote was not a real word. She proudly defended herself and would prove that it was because it was in the dictionary. She opened her dictionary and showed them right there- there in the margin hand written with definition and all was the word. She really was ahaed of her time, seems that's the way most words get put into the dictionary.
