It was two years ago this month, one of Elaine’s rules for me changed my life forever.  We will get to that in a minute.  First, I need to tell a quick backstory.

Recently, I was chatting with the developer/owner of a strip center that I was involved with the const...

This story actually happened a couple weeks ago.  However, subject of this story was/is inevitable and Elaine and I have planned for years as best we could. With the announcement of shuttering the store, Vroom school, and mice and flies, I have not been able to tell th...

I’ve poured myself a fresh cup of coffee.  You  might need a drink yourself.  I’m ready to tell the story.

This is the story of yarn, fiber arts, a family and a beervirus.  Yes, even a beervirus.

The family is mine, well, ours.  Elaine gets growly when I leave...

As I write this story, I am sitting here watching the last of my family leave the house, leaving me alone with the dogs.  It is senior picture taking day.  One of the twins woke Elaine (and me) to get a check to pay for the senior pictures.  Elaine and I weren’t invite...

My children (Girl Twin) gifted me a T-shirt for Father’s Day.  I use the term “gifted” loosely, because at the time she had no source of her own money.  Thinking about that, I guess that’s not a true statement.  Girl Twin was in possession of a Grandma issued debit car...

Living in the country has challenges.  I have accepted them and tell stories so you won’t need to move to the mountains and experience them yourself.  This summer has been extremely bad.  I blame beervirus, our dogs and Elaine.

Before I tell you why I blame be...

Elaine and I celebrated our forty-third wedding anniversary this past week.  I guess that’s a big deal.  Not a big deal like the twenty-fifth (silver) or fiftieth (gold).  I think first anniversaries (paper) are special also.  If you can’t make it to your first anniver...

I didn’t tell the entire story last week.  I told the truth but not the “whole” truth.  I wrote a story about going for an extended bike ride because I didn’t want to hang out in the store wearing a mask.  That was the truth, but I had another motive.  I had to see if...

It’s here!  The 2020 Hot August Knits Yarn Crawl is underway.  Considering the beervirus, the day was pretty successful.  Elaine and Ivy maintained a presence in the store, while I went for a bicycle ride.

I must have been gone too long, because Elaine called...

July 26, 2020

I have the opportunity today to tell a story about yarn, knitting and someone besides myself.  I really don’t mind telling yarn stories, it’s the leaving me out of the story I don’t like.

This story is actually months in the making but I was not able to write it until n...
