    Got an invite to a neighbor's baby shower - pretty short notice and have plans to go to grandson's Eagle Scout award party - but whipped up a flannel rag quilt and a flannel receiving blanket really quickly - she is a super neighbor, helps out with cat sitting if we go away and she/her dh gave us our cat - whom we love dearly.

    Wish I could snap my fingers and whip something up that quick and that nice. Sounds like you have excellent neighbors.

    Our Kitty's name is "Scooter". I took his picture with his Christmas hat on! He is part Siamese and ?. He is now about 5 years old and weighs a dainty 18 pounds! Spoiled rotten!!! He is not talking to me today as I wiped him this morning with a damp cloth - and that is NOT his favorite thing to have done.
