March Dirty Dozen Number

I know you’ll want to know this first thing tomorrow morning and I will need to be at church so here we go.


I also want to introduce this birthday Itty Bitty in honor of Connie’s birthday on March 16.

This measures about 10″x12″ and pattern is available for $3.00 and a self addressed stamped envelope. Send to Country Threads, 2345 Palm Ave, Garner, IA 50438.

I have something in mind for a spring quilt to hang on my outdoor hanger but I’m just too involved in sorting and cleaning right now to sew it up. Tomorrow after church Denise and I are going to work again – we’re trying to send each one of you an email to explain about supporting the blog. This is not spam – it will say Message From Mary E.

March is coming in like a lion with strong winds from the south meaning our dog door has to stay closed – a real inconvenience for the dogs and me, too! Almost time for me to watch Heartland Docs on Nat Geo Wild. My favorite show!

    I don’t get ads in my email. If I have to go to your blog site to read more, then I get ads.

    Happy birthday, Connie, in cold Florida. We are going from nights in the 30’s to 89 degrees coming on Thurs. This sounds more like Iowa or Vermont than FL! Still, the sun is shining and that makes all the difference. I’m watching for the email about supporting this blog. I look forward to and enjoy reading it so much.

      Anna M – I am sorry Heartland Docs is finished for the season – I love it but have to close my eyes during some of the surgical procedures.

        The second season of Heartland Docs, DVM is being produced now. There will be eight episodes in Season 2. I don’t know when it will air.

        I’m so glad it’s your favorite show, Mary! I understand not watching the surgeries – they’re very honest about the realities of medicine and veterinary practice.

        I grew up on a farm and have been owned by horses, dogs and countless cats, so I’ve known many veterinarians. I don’t know how they handle the physical, emotional and financial challenges. They’re amazing people! I’m glad the series has shown a bright light on the challenges of being a vet and running a veterinary practice.

        I am proud and grateful to be one of Drs. Ben’s and Erin’s clients.

    Mary, will you also please let us know here how to support your blog … I don’t get your blog through email, I just google it every day. I enjoy all your quilting, animals and adventures! Thanks for sharing!

    I want to support your blog, too, and I’m not on your email list because I subscribe to your RSS feed using Feedly. Please do post the contents of the email here on the blog.

      Dot D – and that’s just what I cannot do is post on the blog. Big Brother is watching and I am just trying to stay clear of any invalid traffic.

    I also want to be on your email address list. I read your blog everyday and suffered with you on your knee replacements. You’ve caught up with me as I’ve had mine replaced. Glad I only have two knees. lol
    My Mom’s name was Hazel….everyone needs a HAZEL in their life.
    I enjoy your blog very much and wishing you and Connie well.
    Take care.
