Cajun Corner - Vol. 5, No. 40


Cajun Corner – Vol. 5, No. 40 – August 4, 2013

Last week I invited a couple of our friends to dinner yesterday.  My friend asked what she could bring.  I told her that I had not decided the menu at that time and would let her know.  Relaying that information to George, he said, “They will expect shrimp.  That is what you cook.”  So, shrimp is what we had.  I definitely need to come up with another main dish.  However, no one ever complains about boiled shrimp.

The gnomenator is at it again.  One girl has received two gnomes and one received a set of 4 Saints gnomes.  However, the gnomenator remains a mystery.

The horse embroidery turned out to be a success.  The Wisconsin customer said it was a gift and the recipient was very happy to receive it.

Another order this week came from an Etsy customer who ordered a dozen burgundy napkins with a mermaid with a silver metallic tail.

Another Etsy order this week was for one of our fleur de lis embroidery designs.

We received a rush order for a couple of Pensacola With Kids logos on running shirts.

Most of the week, however, was spent working on the huge embroidered headboard.

Almost any design can be embroidered on a laundry bag, beach towel, bath towel, hand towel, or any kind of towel.  They make wonderful gifts and are great for wherever towels are needed.  Imagine your monogram on a set of towels in your bathroom; all matching each other and embroidered using the color of the room. 

Have a wonderful week

Thank you Harold Wilkes for the following:

Exercise For People Over 60

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side.

With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides.

Hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.


Each day you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer. After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags.


Then try 50-lb potato bags, and then eventually, try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute.


After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.
