Isnt it fun to work together and have a lot of fun and visiting. Last Thursday we meet at our church basement for our ELCA meeting and tied quilts which we send over seas and also give to charities and anyone who needs them around our community. We sew the tops at home then bring them to what we call Do-Day. We come at 9 am and work till 3 pm. Sometimes we have a group that serves our noon meal, sometimes we bring our sack lunch and once in a while we run up town for lunch. We do our quilt making once a month from October thru March, and it is so much fun and in our hearts we know we will keep someone warm with our home-made quilts. See you girls in February again.

Calling all inventors
The modern bride
May find herself
In some outlandish fixes.
But most of them
Can be relived
By hand ready-mixes.
Theres ready-mix for
Cakes and Pies
Another for the crust;
And in a real emergency
The instants are a must.
Theres instant coffee, instant tea
And instant soups and gravy -
But no one yet has figured how
To have an instant baby!

Signs of Life
On a California bank: Dont kiss our girls. Theyre all tellers.
On swimming pool: If you drink - dont dive.
In front of a Chicago church: All new sermons - no reruns.
A man doesnt live by bread alone. He needs buttering up once in a while.
When you care enough to give the very best - give money.

Know how
Whole spices taste best in slow-cooked dished,
Simmering releases their full flavor and aroma.
Ground spices release the .....

The year just past,
Is like a door.
Shut tight and locked
Forevermore.
Gone is the year,
Of two-thousand one
No Longer yours,
No longer mine
Some days were good,
Some d .....
