Monner's     Mumblings

Celebration of Life

I feel I should say a couple things about my friend Gary’s “celebration of life”. If you were a teenager living in this town during in the ’70 there is an awfully good chance you knew Gary and/or his siblings. Gary’s “celebration” was well attended. It seemed that every former teenager, now gray haired kid from the neighborhood made it to the celebration. I saw and talked to “friends” I haven’t seen in thirty years. We talked about the “glory days”. Elaine had the best conversation of all with an old high school friend we (Elaine and I) see a couple times a year. The conversation went like this: Friend: Did you get a chance to talk to K&%^*? He’s over there. Elaine: Yes, I spoke with h

Two Friends and ER

Its been a tough week for Ol’ Monner. I lost two friends and made two trips to the emergency room this past week. Last Monday night I received a phone call from a friend of mine living in Anchorage.

I dyed the same two skeins of yarn twelve times. Ivy sold a custom dye order to a woman that she had taught to knit. This lovely lady requested that I dye some dark blue yarn with a small amount of white to match a skein that we had in the store. It should have been a piece of cake. Why do people say “a piece of cake”? Cake has nothing to do with dyeing yarn. However, I could have baked this woman a cake, as I am an accompli

Data, Gigs and Wrestling

I need to get a head start on my story. I am writing at the store Saturday afternoon because I have no available data at home. I have no idea what that means. I just know that when I try to access the internet at home, the arrow in the upper left-hand corner of my computer screen just spins and spins. It was Elaine that told me we are out of gigs. I have written before about our lack of data. At that time Elaine told me we needed to buy a package with more gigs of data.We obviously didn’t bump it enough. Now that the twins have smart phones again, we are running out of data. Elaine thinks they are watching too many downloads. Elaine explained to me what downloads are and I think they a
