Independence Day!

Me: c129 Cumberland
Dispatch: Go ahead
Me: 10-42 (ending tour of duty)
Dispatch: 10-4 ( acknowledgement)…

And so ended my 19 ½ years as a police officer. I fell and injured my knee, while at work, no it was not a dramatic story, just clumsiness, and being too busy. The injury was enough that I could not continue my career so I have retired from being a police sergeant, on a disability, at the age of 41.

This should give me plenty of time to knit and spin up stash before I die. That statement would be true if only those balls, skeins, and hanks of yarn would quit following me home.
Hopefully I will also be able to keep this blog updated at least a little more often.

So to everyone, Happy Independence Day, but for me this year it has a different meaning!

Open Mouth, Insert Foot

This post is meant for a very good friend. She has been experiencing some health problems. So I hope this will make her laugh. Each year on the first Saturday in October our church has their annual fall bazaar. Of course we all have high hopes each year of craft items we will complete for the following year. Well my friend took it so far as to make a statement which was written down by another friend of ours, about how many items she wanted to get done for church. Two weeks ago this statement was brought up, read aloud, and she was questioned about how much stuff she had been able to complete. A resounding laugh was heard, which meant, nothing or at the very least not much. Well I was able to complete some things, but it wasn't as much as I had hoped to complete, but alas there is always next year. I'm going to try to start now, oh wait I have to get things done for Christmas, maybe after the first of the year. Enjoy !

Let the Countdown Begin !

Well it is finally almost here, the Maryland Sheep and Wool Show, only five days left. I will be driving and taking three other knitting fanatics with me. We live about two hours away, but we are planning on leaving before dawn. Of course this brings raised eyebrows to all of those who really don't understand what a big day this will be for us. I have told other non-knitter friends that I will be going to the show and the usual response is, "the what" to which I answer "only the largest yarn/sheep/fleece and everything else there is go with yarn show". Again I usually get a shake of the head and maybe an "ok", like it is no big deal.
This will be my fourth year going to the show. My first year as we were driving and getting closer a car passed us and my friend noticed a yarn related bumper sticker. Well from there the race was on, she was telling me to drive faster. Then they were joking with me since it was my first year I would have to drink sheep's blood. Of course that was only a joke, no sheep were slaughtered for that purpose. This year there is a another sheep and wool show virgin, so I guess we will have to tell her of the ritual at least on our way there to have some fun.
Well as stated before let the countdown begin !
