Two weeks ago I went a dropped off an old desk to my daughter. Got to see Jethro and Ely Mae while I was there. Well the next day, Jethro snuck out of the apartment. GONE! I kinda think maybe he went looking for me. He was attached a little more to me than my daughter. So for the last 2 weeks Ely Mae hasn't quite been herself, and my daughter has been so upset. I would drive all the way over there and look for him every other day when I could, with no luck. Well this past Monday everything was going wrong for her. Someone got sick at work, she worked another shift. Going home there was an accident, took her forever, etccccccc. But all that stuff lead up to her walking from the mailbox, and the exact time Jethro was walking along the fence 25 feet from her front door. She FOUND him. He was soooooo hungry! Poor fatso! Which leads me to this next subject.
Do you ever get that 6th Sense Feeling??? You might be driving down the road hauling butt, come up to a car going really slow. It is just the two of you, on a 4 lane road, you think to your self why is this person going so slow? But yet you don't go around them. Then a mile down the road, there is a cop sitting there with his radar on... Ah Ha. That is why you didn't go around him. The 6th sense was kicking in, and keeping you from getting a ticket.
Ok, I normally just browse the pet section if and when I see the paper. But I learned not to ignore these things, so what could possibly be in the antiques section that I have to have. Well.......
Can you read it? A longarm quilting machine. Yippeeeee. You mean I have to wait till 4pm to call??? It was a very long day. Finally got around to calling around 7pm as I was getting ready to leave work. She says first off, the poles are NOT 100 feet long. It is a misprint. Then tells me to come on over there are a few ladies over sewing. So I leave work, find my way to her house. Her husband answers the door and someone says, HI Ann Marie, I answer back Hi, fancy meeting you her, and then another lady looks around the corner ANN MARIE........and comes running arms open wide, I haven't seen you forever. How are you? I knew 2 out of the other 3 that were there by face as well. Small world. I checked the longarm out, told her I would call her back in the morning, had to wait for dear hubby to get off work, and he is in Key West. Talked to him, and the next morning I called and said I WANT IT! See ya after work. So now I am the proud new owner of a very young Antique LOL> The newspaper put it in the wrong section and everything!
I managed to get it crammed in the other side of the 3rd floor, amongst all the crap that is being stored up there from the kids. I need to go through it all. I have been filling the trash can up. But there is a lot of boxes of stuff up there.
Here is my horrible attempt of feathers. Well I guess it isn't too bad since it is my first try.
Well I am off to find a bite to eat. Then to find a different spool of thread and practice some more. I have a pile of quilts that are awaiting their turn on the machine too.
So Sam found Jethro on Monday, I bought me a longarm on Wednesday, I am playing the lottery on Friday!!! Wish me luck!
