I was raised with "You may not use the gift until you have written the 'Thank You' note." Our children were taught the same, and all eight of our grands either send handwritten notes or call to thank us and have a chat. Just as your children are taught to wash their hands before they leave the bathroom, to brush their teeth before going to bed, they should be taught to say "please" and "thank you" as a matter of course.
#2 is definitely male.
#3 appears to be doing faggoting. The spool of thread is on the arm of her chair.

Check the date -- it wasn't enough to stop 45's election!
Ollie the Octopus from Lion Brand Yarn is a free pattern, knit in the round, no seams, no sewing.
Beautiful work of art. I would love to make this pillow. May I have the name / source of the pattern? TYIA.
I have an unusual first name, Baila. It's Yiddish and I'm named after my grandmother. My mother spelled it that way because "Bayla was too common."
I was named for my aunt who died ten years before I was born. My mother said 'baila' was Spanish for 'dance,' so she spelled my Yiddish name "Beila Charna" ['ch' as in cheese].
I had a neighbor who allowed her tween-aged daughters name her third: Tinkerbell O'Brien.
My son went to school with twins: Thingwan and Thingtu.
I knew an attorney named "Open." Her parents were living in a commune, and their first child 'opened' her mother's womb!
Many years ago, Readers Digest reported that a Professor of Greek History named his son Theophilus . . . because, 'He's the awful-est looking baby I've ever seen!'
I got the shock of my life 29 years ago, when I remarried and moved to New Jersey. After using a gas range all my life, it never occurred to me that electric would be SO different. I hate it!!!! We live in a high-rise apartment, and are forbidden to use gas appliances. I used to enjoy giving large dinner parties -- now I cook because we must eat. I tell people that I can burn boiling water.
Sorry -- meant to send PM.
