Thumbs down

I saw a documentary on Quentin Crisp's lifestyle. Dust may be one thing but he is also slovenly when it comes to washing dishes. He will use the same plate again and will only wash it once he has had fish on it!

After seeing the Quentin Crisp quote about dust, I though he could be my new hero. After reading your post about his dinner plate creative, I've completely changed my mind!

Been doing my family tree again. When I retired my oldest son and I really got into it, we even found a member of our family in Luxembourg who was amazing in helping us. Mine are mostly from Switzerland, Belgium, France, Luxembourg and Germany. My DH side's are mostly from Engalnd. So interesting.

JoAnn, you are inspiring me. I worked hard on mine for a long time but after my Dad passed away I haven't done much on it. I was trying to find out information on his grandfather's family for him and when he passed there wasn't quite the same passion. But I do want to solve the mysteries of my paternal ancestors, specially as I am the last one in that family.

Right now, however, I am trying to put together a bridal shower card to replace the one I made for the gift several months ago which isn't with the present. My friend and I made an afghan for the bride whom we have known for many years and the wedding was in the summer. We were both away when the shower happened and weren't at the wedding so we are meeting the bride tomorrow for tea and the present.

you should try to have a big family get together in europe to see what interesting things you can find out.

although, it should be held in dunkirk. you know, just in case dh has to leave suddenly.

I would love to go to Europe and see where my father fought in World War II. We were planning a trip to Luxembourg on 9/11. Our family member who lives there canceled every thing for us.

Congrats! I've heard Rugby makes even hockey look like a sissy sport. I can't imagine anything making hockey look like a sissy sport other than maybe ancient gladiatorial battles so it must be quite a game. I have a couple friends who are just crazy about it.

Hey, hockey ain't no sissy sport up here in the Great White North! We had two gold medalists from the Canadian women's hockey team compete on The Amazing Race Canada shortly after the Olympics. One of them broke her hand 4 days before the Gold medal game and still managed to score in the final game. She also competed well in the Race, with the pair winning 7 out of 10 legs and coming in second.

As for what am I doing? after I feed the furkids, I am going to finish watching last week's Blacklist so I can watch this week's tonight. I will also be working on a crochet order I need to get in the mail by the end of the week. It's great to have a job I can do watching TV!
