The Couch is Still There

Just an update, the ugly ass couch is still there-no shock really, but now it's been rained on, frozen and gawd only knows what critters have decided to make it home.

When it warms up, I decided to take a drive around my little town and photograph some of the crapola people have in their yards around here. While driving to the local post office, the one I hate, I saw many photo ops, but it was too cold to get out and take the picture. Also, I was afraid Clem, Jimmy-Bob or whatever the hell his name is was gonna come out with his double-barrel and say "hello". I will have to be discreet, but you will all understand why the theme of "Deliverance" comes to mind sometimes when I drive down the back roads here (and yes, even the main highway).

I also saw a fine car specimen with a bullet hole in the windshield, rust all over, two flats and it was about 60 years old and indeed had the "For Sale" sign on it. Unfortunately, it's not a good thing to drive and try and be nosy.

I do want to shout out to Cindy a thanks for the ticker tape yarn and Kathy for the handpainted sock yarn she made me. Pics tomorrow.

Also, the nut that I am, I allowed myself to be kinda talked into signing up for the DC SP Swap on C'ville. First the stole swap and now this. If it turns out the way it usually does, these are my last ones I'm telling ya! I wasn't strong-armed or anything, just reluctant to sign up again cause I am always let down-we shall see. Lori and Wendy, I'm holding you responsible!

Almost done the socks. Unfortunately, laundry, napping, cleaning got in the way! Til tomorrow........
