Was doing some hand sewing the other day and I needed a certain color, so I went to my sewing basket and sure enough I had the right color and it was a wooden spool and the price was marked 15. I dont know how old it was, but I do know a spool of thread is about ten times that now and it comes on plastic spools. I have been saving my empty spools thinking someday I might have a cute shelf made out of all my spools, but its just a thought now. I would have to mix the wooden and plastic and dont know how that would look, and they all are a different size - maybe Ill just forget it.

He told the boys at the coffee shop that next week is our 50th wedding anniversary. He told them that he took his wife to South America for their 25th anniversary. Oh my that was great. What are you going to do for the 50th?

Im thinking about going back down there and picking her up!

When watering my hanging plants,
Despite proceeding with care,
I always end up watering
The sofa, rug and chair.

Have you ever noticed?
More people might live to a ripe old age, if they werent working so hard providing for it.
Glasses have an amazing effect on vision - especially after they have been filled several times.
A reckless driver is one who passes you on the highway in spite of all you can do.
By the time he whispers We were made for each other, shes already planning alterations.
