    I know I have been around for awhile now. But I still don't know all the quilting lingo. Like what is DD, DH, and so forth. I believe I may know a couple of them. But not sure of all the lingo.

    I always spell it out, because sometimes they just don't seem so dear.

    My grammar teacher would be proud too. LOL

    I need to check the site- we always refer to them as Dear- but what if they are being a PITA? Do I go PITAH? Just kidding- (j/k) he's very well behaved.

    Gigi, we must be married to brothers or cousins. Stroke or not he can still be a real BH!!! (that doesn't mean 'better husband' either) men are men whether they are upright and moving on their own or flat on their butt and ordering you about. lol

    Well, I do have 2 Butt Heads, but they're more commonly known as domestic house cats....'tho I question the "domestic" part, I have yet to see either of them dust or do the dishes. (I do want it noted that the EH picks up thier slack).
