    It is actually a quilt. I used pink polar fleece for the batting so it is light weight. It is bigger than her but she will grow into it.

    Square root is too complicated.

    Where is your granddaughter living? I'm thinking New York is maybe a little bit different from Montana. For one thing, we like to add all the way. When I was young, I loved living in the heart of NYC. I loved the fast pace, the culture, the opportunities. Loved it all. Now not so much. I guess for some of us New York City is like a vodka martini with onions. Delicious and fun, but you can probably take more of them when you're younger, and you might not want one every day.

    Well I made it home but got the flu almost as soon as I got to Marty's house. I had planned having a catch up and and then home but I haven't even made it home so sick with this flu got Tamiflu and should be getting better, am trying to answer some pms but can't be away from the bathroom for very long.

    Oh, sorry to hear you got the nasty flu bug. Hope you are feeling better soon! Remember, plenty of rest and lots of fluids!! And of course some aspirin to keep fevers down.

    Mailed my package to my sp today. Her zip adds to 23. She lives west of me and then a little south but lots of miles away. She should get her package Thursday but with the postal service probably Friday. She has one furbaby and likes chocolate....but who doesn't!

    me too mscupid, neither one is here yet.
    No K she has been living in Oklahoma, most recently in Dallas for the airlines. She wants back in Dallas, loves it there. She actually thinks her transfer will go through for Feb.1, just found out about 30 minutes ago, so she's on a very high cloud. Don't really know the area's there but know she's right in New York she and her friends walked to watch the ball drop. Main problem is getting to and from the airport everyday for her flight schedules and the expense of it. Those $20 a day adds up quick.

    Or as Krystyna would say - it's really 8, Ladybug. I'm the product of a southern education (even my masters is from the south), so I know how to add like her.

    I'm confused now. I used to think that my zip added up to 18. Now that Krystyna has introduced us to the "new math" I don't know if I'm 18 or 9! Oh, well. I will just happily wait for my package to arrive to whatever zip I am

    I'm from the north and thought I knew how to add, but like the southern wayless numbers to write... LOL

    My sp package went out today. It is headed south of me. Not sure if my sp likes Bulldogs, Falcons, Braves or maybe all three. Hope you enjoy your package.

    Poor Lori! Hang in there, girl friend. Spring is around the corner.
    And speaking of spring, Darlene, the quilt in your avatar is delish! Can we see a big photo please?

    I am working on 2 packages. I have everything around and ready, just need to get it packed. One will cross a lot of water, of course you realize I live in Michigan and we are surrounded by water. But, is that the water I am talking about? Something odd about both my gals. Both do not want candy. Who don't like candy? Of course, likeing and neading and wanting are all different concepts. I certainly do not need candy. And I souldn't have it around, cause if it is there, I will eat it. Gotta get to work, board meeting in an hour. Chow.

    Segasal - How did your Christmas turn out with your doggie in tow? OMG, I can't believe I forgot his name!!! Must be another year older and less memory, huh?



    Sorry it has taken so long to come back on the thread been dealing with some other things in my life. Sharon, It was interesting to say the least. I don't think they were happy that I brought the dog with me every where. They seem to think that he is an embarassment....that the family was not "perfect" anymore. Now mind you my mother in law and father in law loved him...and that is all that mattered to me.

    Segasal, How narrow minded of them!! They are not worth your effort. Read my tag line, that is the way we should all live. I am trying. I hope you do too. Your dog is adorable and if he helps you with your independence, all the better. You don't need anyones approval. Whew!! Sorry, I guess I got a little riled. LOL

    Well, I am still clue-less! But at least I know my package to Wanda got there safe and sound and she is happy with the contents. I need to remember to take pics before I mail a package off so I can post them here.
