What a great run! Wow, we are so appreciative of all your support and kindness. Several of you brought us gifts which I’ll show in a future post – right now I’ve got a huge tote bag to sort through.
Remember the little dog named Angel who lives with Galen and Gloria? She came to the sale – I had to hold her. I want my hair to be the color of Angel’s instead of blonde gray.
And Penny came to the sale, too, from Rochester.
I had to pet her, too. So many friends who came and I had so little time to chat.
And that brings up a complaint from me. I only know you guys by name – why didn’t you identify yourselves? I saw hundreds of faces who told me they love reading the blog but only one or two told me who they were! I am so disappointed but also want to encourage you to leave a comment. So many of you said “oh, I’ve never left a comment”and I said “why not?“ I do not understand! We are a group of friends and I threatened to quit talking if nobody keeps up the thread of conversation. They all laughed – they knew I couldn’t shut up.
I can hardly wait to sew something although tonite I’m busy watching basketball and that goes for the next two nights as well.
Here are our trusty helpers –
Jane on the left came from Des Moines and Amy on the right came from Kansas City. Two more friends, Brenda and Nan, came from Kansas, too. They surprised me when they simply walked in! Such fun we had catching up!
This is what we started with this morning in the kitchen – not much.
It got up to 50 today but yesterday was brutal – we will never forget it. Our shoppers were tough – cold weather wasn’t going to slow them up!
So it’s in the books – thanks for coming or just for sending a message of encouragement and regret at living too far away to come. It was all appreciated by both of us.
