I can't sleep so I am in my Dad's Lift chair/recliner doing some cake sketches.

I am attending a cake conference in September and need to supply a display cake, cupcakes and some sugar work. It isn't a competition, but wedding planners, brides, companies all attend and it is good for business (yes I know I am supposed to be retired)

UPDATE - I sat here for four hours. I first listened to the 2012 concert, then an hour of the Vienna Boys Choir. Then two more hours of different pieces of music. It was the most restful day I have had in a long time. I got a lot done on the piece of embroidery I am presently working on. I just might do it again today. The only reason I stopped was because my spine was beginning to hurt. I think I will have Son #1 hook up my computer to my large screen TV. He has been trying to talk me into it for a couple of months now. Sounds like a good idea.

Today, I will wait to see if Son #3 shows up.

Did you try checking for the manufacturing company online, Babe? Sometimes you can get the instructions there, or at least be able to contact them to send it to you.

Another idea would be to check with a pet store for more info. HTH

Waiting for GF to get ready. Heading into the city for some food shopping. Going to an Italian grocer, NICASTRO'S Italian Food Emporium I could buy one of everything there, and then to an Asian superstore. http://www.tnt-supermarket.com/en/index.php. Bringing the cooler so I can pack some meat and fish to take home. Not sure what supper is yet....

Just had morning coffee with SO on the deck. It's a beautiful day. Quite pleasant.
