don't you hate it, when someone asks you to make something for them. then won't listen when you give best way to do it.this is in reference to granddaughter, wants me to make a cover for the head board of her bed. her idea will not work, so we are still at odds over it. she has two twin head boards pushed together. wants one cover to go over the both. she can't seem to get it that it needs two separate covers. i could do her way and she will hate it. we shall see!!

It sounds like she needs to learn to do it herself and to learn by trial and error.

DYHIW you let your doggie out first thing in the morning and she comes back onto the porch and throws up something unidentifiable -- before you even get your first cup of coffee. It's getting so the most frequent words in my vocabulary are "what now?".
