    Could you and they help me find my pink thimble, please? :|

    Don't feel bad about missing that there was a leaf for your table. Writing some thing like that or any other information that is given through this forum, make us curious, Many of us will check their dining table, their ironing board.So thank you for mentioning it.

    I have had my van for ten years and also discovered that we had a cup holder under where the ashtray would be. I have my controls there, for my van is handicapp accessiable, My husband found it taking out the the panel to see why my heater had only one setting. He then asked me if I wanted to take out the consel he had brought me. I said , "No". My seats are removable for a wheelchair if and when I need it. Love the storage space to keep my JoAnn Fabric ads in it. I have a tendency to forget them if I don't put them in the van. LOL

    Sounds just like my moment yesterday when I finally moved my 6' wooden folding table downstairs from storage!!

    Hi Kitsie, I will (right now) ask my three helpers to help you find your pink thimble. Okay, St. Anthony, you too God, and my beloved husband, I know its not me at this time, but a fellow quilter lost her pink thimble so I ask the three of you to help her find it. Now don't disappoint me after I bragged about how much you three help me. So I am hoping to "pay it forward" for Kitsie. Amen to you and thank you for helping my friend.

    My BFF and I were talking about counted cross stitch one day and how much we hate doing a few stitches and then changing colors and rethreading all the time. Her mother overheard us and said "use two needles". Dah!! I have a whole pack of them, just never thought to thread more than one at a time.

    I've been asking St. Anthony for help finding our spare truck keys for 5 years; I don't think he's going to come thru but I'll keep asking.

    Having come from Lancaster County, Pa. and moving outside of Springfield, Mo. I found that I had no neighbors except a young friendly deaf couple. We communicated by my posting a chalkboard in my mudroom entrance. I had no idea how my Pa. Dutch dialect could not be interpreted by a deaf man who did not understand "dialect". He came to me one day and wrote, "My truck broke in town". I wrote back, "Do you want me to run you over?". He got wide-eyed and started backing out my door and yelling "No!". I was puzzled until my DH entered and laughingly pointed toward the chalkboard. Poor kid must have thought I was out to kill him.......

    Only one who lives near Lancaster County and has in-laws (my daughter's in-laws) from there would understand. I laugh to myself every time my daughter's mother-in-law (also my best friend) says something like, "Till I get the laundry done I am all tired out." Huhhhhh?!?!?

    This is the best place to come, because everyone is in the same boat. Nobody knows what they are doing. lol
