Happy Birthday Angus!

It's hard to believe it has been 28 years - folks always tell you that time flies and they aren't just kidding - where has the time gone - seems like just yesterday he was a tow headed little boy (see picture below - I think you were 3 in this picture, you didn't like the outfit - it was down on the steps by the Flint River). You always called my name out when I was out of sight in the house just to make sure I was around, you rode your bike all over town, and then when you got out of high school - over to Scotland he was still riding bikes....all over the country.
Now he lives in Atlanta, likes to travel (he didn't make it to Scotland on his birthday like he had planned, but methinks he will eventually get there this summer.)

All I can say is that he is a love, I don't get to see him often enough, and I wish him the very very best birthday.

On another knitting knote, I did get a set of Denise knitting needles in celebration of my son's birthday (I knew you would love the needles Angus). It got to the point that I knew I would, in the long run, find it more economical to have these than to continue to purchase different sizes with different lengths in the circulars.

In other news, Sooz and I went down to Isabee's to check out the sidewalk sale and bought a few items. Nice to know they had lemonade because it was hotter than a hot flash outside.

The rest of the day will be made up of visiting a friend at the hospital, knitting, and preparing for Rachael to come and spend 2 weeks here with us. Who knows, she might become a knitter this go round.

I like my Denises a lot, but I still find myself buying the odd Addi Turbo or bamboo needle here or there. . .
