Praying fervently for all of your family for comfort in your pain and for the best outcome.
I felt sorry for the poor girl all the way through. She was bewildered and upset and the guy put enormous pressure on her with that ridiculously over-the-top flash mob. She didn't get to plan her dream wedding. It was his production all the way. Doesn't bode well for their future.
Still laughing at the second one!
Lovely work--and adorable grandchildren!
I am a college professor who occasionally has a student who does some kind of needlework during lectures. I find that it is not only distracting to me, but also to the other students in the class. There have been times I've asked the student (privately, so I don't embarrass them) not to knit, embroider, crochet, etc., during class. They always have responded positively, usually saying that they are trying to get something made in time for Christmas.
I am a professional musician and would be offended if someone were knitting at a formal concert. In a concert, it's disrespectful of the performers and others attending to do anything -- opening a crinkly candy wrapper, talking, texting-- that distracts attention from the concert. And, as much as I LOVE knitting, I believe it's included in that category.
I regularly experience "knitphoria" --euphoria from knitting. You could call me knitphoric. But I think I prefer the knitologist label. Or just knitter.
Mamaw, my sister's husband is the vet at that clinic and she puts the funny messages on the sign! I laughed when I saw it, knowing it was hers!
