Determination or Denial?




This is right below and in front of our house. If it weren't hunting season, I imagine the deer jumping up and trying to get the last remnants of the growing season. Where's Gary Larson when you need him?


The new knitting resolution has been a good plan. Whether I really do it or not is not nearly as significant as is the fact that I'm going through the books and will have some to move to better homes very soon.

To be filed in the category of things I wish I had said:



I was wearing this hat at the grocery store yesterday. It is very warm and I noticed, also makes people smile a little when they see it. The clerk checking my groceries said,

"I like your hat but I honestly have to say I'd never wear it."

Had I the wit and wisdom of someone older than myself- like those 80 year old ladies that say whatever they want- it would have occurred to me to say,

"That's o.k. It wouldn't look good on you anyway."

I suppose I can relish the fact that karma was in my favor- though I wonder if I lose points for thinking it as I drove home.

Thank you for the image of the deer leaping into the trees -- if I could draw, I would immortalize that image, but I can't so I won't.

Great answer! I love the hat, btw :)

Sounds like that clerk is too chicken to wear something fun. Too bad for him/her! And I don't think you lose ANY points.

I agree that is a great comeback! She also probably doesn't have the foresight to make anything so cool either!

what kind of a backhand comment was THAT??! Would it have killed them to say 'I like your hat' and STOP talking????

I love the hat and the colours ir has been knitted it. I used to knit a lot when my children were babies. Do you sell what you knit ? If you want to take a break and visit my blog and maybe drink some tea and share a thought ...........
