To be insightful means to intuitively grasp things - an "aha!" moment!

About Me

My photo
I am a member of the church of Christ. I have been writing things since I was little. Some have been printed, some posted. I write to teach or encourage; to blow off steam; and for fun! I had my own motorcycle in my 40s; I was a bluegrass music DJ for about 13 years; I've performed some. I am a member of the NRA. In 2003 (age 59), I became high partial legally blind; in 2005, I had to get hearing aids! Franklin Field said: "Poor eyes limit your sight; poor vision limits your deeds". And no kidding, the picture was made April, 2012!

I met Carol through a note in "Good Neighbors" in our newspaper. Leanne wanted someone in the area where I live to teach her to crochet. I replied. Carol also read it. I met both ladies at a restaurant a week ago. Carol brought an old mesh hat, obviously loved and very much worn, to see if I could copy it. I could. I showed her several kinds of yarn. After seeing her old hat, I told her the yarn I thought would be most similar to her old hat (Vanna's Choice, by Lion, though it can be made out of any yarn), and told her to buy the yarn, and how much I'd charge. She did; I did. I had her come to my house to try one on,
which I'd made (to work up the pattern) with the same yarn but in blue. She wanted it a little bigger as she wears it a bit floppy (the pattern is easily adjustable to fit), and with the brim turned up. Ripping out is part of crocheting! She got her 2 new hats today, and wants the blue one (which I thought I'd be keeping) for her sister! Here's a picture of her 2 new hats, and a picture of her wearing the rose colored one. If you'd like the pattern, or would like for me to make one for you, let me know.

And your cake baking is unbelieveable! And to think you are making a living at it!
