Carpet, Horses and Yarn

I should get the mall stuff out of the way so we can talk about yarn. Elaine has always told me this day would come. I have become my parents! I can’t handle some of the hairstyles of the youth. (I will get to the mall stuff, just hang with me.) My parents were not happy about my choice of hairstyle (or lack of hairstyle) in my teenage years. To tell you the truth Elaine didn’t like it much either, then or now. I washed my hair daily, combed it while wet in the morning, cut it rarely and whatever happened, happened Professional football players are wearing their hair longer these days. Well, this is not a new style. The players have chosen to copy a hairstyle pioneered by my friends and

Rain, Memorial Day

It has been raining here in Northern Colorado. The rain has been making mall construction slightly less than fun. I am ready to go back to my yarn dyeing job, but no one’s hiring. I was able to work in the store Saturday. By “able”, I mean I was allowed to drive Elaine to the store and hang around in case something needed to be lifted or carried. Elaine is recovering nicely from her elbow surgery, but she is limited to what she can lift and carry. Now that I think about it, I drive every Saturday, even when Elaine’s elbow is fine. Sadly, now one needed anything lifted or carried so I hung around waiting to drive home. I did get to stand behind the cash register, but I didn’t get to pus

Surgery and Cleats

I have two stories to write this week. One I want to write, one I need to write. I guess I will start with the one I need to write. If you have been in the store lately, you probably know that Elaine broke her arm last January and it has been causing her some problems. If you haven’t been in the store recently, you have missed out on this knowledge and also seeing all the wonderful yarns I have dyed. (Me dyeing yarns has absolutely nothing to do with this story, but I am the writer of these stories and I don’t like it when I’m not the star.) Elaine has had some discomfort (and some clicking noise) in her elbow since the break had “healed”. If this had been in the Kit Carson, Daniel Boone

May, Track and Mother’s Day

I don’t like the month of May. I have good reasons. I don’t like the weather in May. It is snowing right this minute. May is the month that teases you with some beautiful weather, you start to get used to it, and BAM; it’s snowing. I can recall six of the last twelve Mother’s Days that we have “enjoyed” snow. Two of those days we have lost power due to the snow. Speaking of Mother’s Day, Mother’s Day is in May. I know mothers deserve a special day and fathers get a special day in June, but why do I have to wait an extra month? I’ve been nice to my kids also. Why am I always last? Sunday mornings in May, I get up early to write a story. I am surrounded by Great Pyrenees dog insisting

This is for Kelly

The dogs woke me up this morning like they always do. Luckily, they also woke Elaine. I laid in bed pretending to be asleep until Elaine got up and let them out. I was afraid to look at the clock. If Elaine saw my eyes open she would know I was awake and my turn to let the dogs out. (Oh come on! Tell me you haven’t done the same thing.) I think it was about 5:00 AM. Elaine let the dogs out and went back to bed. At 6:10 AM the dogs wanted out again. I was going to pretend to be sleeping again but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. I think that’s called love. I needed to get up and write a story anyway. I got up, let the dogs out and made coffee. Just like every Sunday morning. Whil
