    I just came back from the PO and my package is on it's way. It doesn't have far to go, so I am thinking Monday will be someone's lucky day. Oh, I had a big bag of M&M's that I am quite enjoying. They would NOT fit in that package!! I tried, really I did. Smileing broadly while I chew.

    SharonAnne, my name begins with the 13th letter. Although if I remember correctly none of the other clues you gave matched me of course I could have them confused with all the other clues that are on here.LOL

    Krystyna- Thanks for the info concerning Brenda. My prayers and thoughts go out.

    For anyone else needing a prayer, you have it. Hope everyone has a good evening and happy sewing.

    Neat boxes. I'm still waiting, but it is early yet. None of the hints seem to match and I'm embarrassed to say I don't know if my state has a large swimming pool or any real famous athletes - unless Dolly Partin qualifies! (carrying them around should qualify her for something - snicker)

    Today I received a great package from Ms. Kathleen (Vanogay) and what a prefect day for it. I had gotten up with a nasty headache and was feeling really yucky. But finding the little package waiting for me at the door was in my giftie to perk up my day. Ms. Kathleen you did such a wonderful job with my selections and I love my Goodies.

    Here's a couple pictures to show.

    Thanks Ms. Kathleen.

    Sincerely,
    Tricia

    Hey, thanx a bunch Anastasia! Glad you showered. I didn't! hahahaha!

    Nothing serious going on ... just business and money worries ... but somehow that always manages to work itself out. Both my son and his fiancee (who lives here) are unemployed, didn't save while they were making a bundle this summer, and now both of their cars are heaps of junk and they have no money to repair them. I am ready to pull my hair out. But then my scalp would be a bloody mess and that is ever so unattractive. At least to me.

    So ... this afternoon I decided to ignore business and harvest the last of my tomatoes, peppers and grapes. It's good to be outside in the autumn sun.

    My new favorite saying: Everything will be alright in the end. If it's not alright, it's not the end.

    Oh that sounds like plenty of people I know. I feel ya. And that's a great quote. I'm also working on the bloody scalp look over this math class. But it's ok we can get Cowls from SharonAnne to cover it.. so it's ok, you can keep pulling It always makes me feel better to be outside, even though that requires getting off the comfy couch and the possibility of interacting with humans (instead of computers masquerading as humans).. And showers.. mmmm showers.. always make me happier and ready to tackle things.

    Everyone.. Krystyna needs a cattle prod in her next SP box k? for her unemployed roommates

    My boss kept me late tonight, so I only had 5 minutes to spare before the PO closed. Worked through lunch and breaks, too. I'm now officially brain dead whereas before I was only pseudo brain dead. So, I guess 5 minutes counts, huh? The cowl is off and winging its way across the US to wine city via priority USPS mail. The other letter in the name is the 11th. That's enough clues. My adorable SP should be able to guess definitively by now. I tend to let the dog out of the bag more than I should. Wow - that's 4 or 5 clues depending on if you consider what adorable means. To clarify, older people don't tend to be adorable - we tend to be cranky like Maxine. lol.

    So sad about Brenda and her beloved dad. Mine passed away at a young age in 1994 and I think of him everyday!! Often with laughs because he was a character, but sometimes with sadness. It takes a while to recuperate from the loss. Saying prayers that Brenda's transition is not too rough.

    Anastasia - Who could resist your hhhhhhuuuuuuuggggggs even if you skipped the shower? I'm sure all our SP packages are filled with invisible hugs!!! I love being outside in the crisp, clear Autumn air, too, but was stuck inside allllll day today. So bummed about that. No exercise!! Does bouncing off the walls count as exercise?

    Krystyna - If your name is Krystyna Mememememe, then the 11th and 13th letters match. It must be yours you adorable SP person you.

    OK, I've had enough fun. Time to make dinner - not much rest for the wicked, huh?

    Oops, not finished yet - I'm taking ideas on what the 10 women and 1 man in our department can dress up as for Halloween. I don't think a harem is a good idea. We'd scare the rest of the people. Last year there were 8 of us and we dressed up as Snow White and the 7 dwarves. I'm stumped this year though. Maybe Harry Potter characters???

    Have a good weekend all. I'll probably check back tomorrow after the Pacific Int'l Quilt Show - can't wait.
