I had a Dream

I remember when Marshall moved out. I had a huge case of "Empty Nest Syndrome". But.......

I had a dream last week. After finding out that my middle son,Wyatt, got laid off. He's a graphic designer/drafter. He's also the one with a wife, 4 kids and a mortgage.

Then, there are the Microsoft lay offs. Youngest son, Marshall, tells me it doesn't involve him but you never know.

Then, there is my Eldest son, Jerico, who works on a ship surrounded by racists that drive him crazy so he's nearly quit a dozen times.

Do you see where I'm going with this?

Do you remember the 70's and 80's TV series The Waltons? A story about a large family during the depression. Fav. line was "Good night, John boy".

Anyway...I have an urge to clear out the rec room so we can use it as bedrooms. There is room for at least 3 rooms if we divide it up.

Its beginning to look like a REAL depression. I'm getting worried. I hope Mr. Obama can work a miracle.
Otherwise its gonna be.. "Good night mama.. Good night Wyatt boy."

Sent from Australia

Got this gift from my Epal, Sascha, in Australia. All Angora or mixed with Angora. The pink was specially dyed for me!! Its my favorite shade of pink..bordering on Pepto Pink. LOL Wonderful!!! Sascha and I have been exchanging yarn/magazines for more years then I can count. She made me the first pair of fingerless mitts and got me started down THAT road. I must mention the beautiful socks she made me last year..way beyond what I have the patience for.
You should check the Angora ladies website at
A very lovely site with lots of cute bunnies and *gulp* *squeezes eyes shut* YARN and ROVING.. I can't look
