    Houston Quilt Festival is Almost Here!

    I'm getting so excited. This time next week, I'll be at Quilt Festival enjoying all the quilt and vendors and having so much fun. I love the fall!

    You can spend a lot of money at Quilt Festival. I have an envelope that I put cash in each week and save it up so that I can buy what I want and enjoy Quilt Festival. I used to take classes but it's gotten to where it's such a hassle getting to the convention center from my house during the week that I don't do that anymore. The classes are really pricey but worth it.

    Santa was very kind to me this year: she let me sign up for four days of classes, gave me permission to volunteer for a three-hour shift two days, and gave me an allowance to shop in the afternoons.

    As a side-note, I take the Metro and avoid the hassle and cost of parking downtown. Since I'm an old guy, I get to ride Metro at no charge, and there's no charge for parking where I leave my car. I always limit my purchases since I know I will have to hand-carry them on the Metro.

    I am really looking forward to going again. It's an amazing adventure!!
    Sometimes I try to act "normal," but it gets boring so I just go back to being myself.
