Happy Labor Day.

I finally finished the beautiful, large embroidery design.

Clothilde is working just fine.

George’s father fell and hurt his head last week and was rushed to the ER.  George’s sister went up to Atlanta to check on him.  He seems to be fine but he is falling more frequently these days.  George and his sister have tried to talk him into moving closer to us but he refuses.  The truth is that he does have a sweet deal on his house rent up there and really could not find anything near that price down here.  Kathie wants him to move in with her in Fairhope.  George and I feel that the offer is on the table and if he doesn’t want to move, he shouldn’t have to move.  It is just that if he gets too feeble to travel, he will have lost this opportunity.  Not to mention that it would be easier for Kathie and George to visit and care for him if he were here.  Oh well.  Like Mama used to say, you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink.

The krewe has been working hard on a new costume to wear in a Mermaid Parade in two weeks on Pensacola Beach.  We are practicing our dance routine, as well.  It should be a lot of fun and we are all looking forward to parading.  We have a basic pattern for the costume and then everyone embellishes as they like.  It should be interesting.

Our gnomenator remains a mystery but he/she has been busy.  I received a gnome we call Happy Henshall a/k/a Smiley.  Another friend recently received her gnome, too.  The gnomenator is still out there.

I am simply addicted to Pinterest these days.  A “search” for antique handkerchiefs brought a wealth of photographs and websites.  Looking at all of these beautiful hankies put another idea in my head about making them.  I’ll have to try it out and see if it works first before I tell you how to do it.

Have a wonderful week

Thank you Patrice for the following:

A retired gentleman went to the social security office to apply for Social Security.

The woman behind the counter asked him for his driver's license to verify his age. He looked in his pockets and realized he had left his wallet at home. He told the woman that he was very sorry but he seemed to have left his wallet at home. "I will have to go home and come back later." The woman says, "Unbutton your shirt." So he opens his shirt revealing curly silver hair. She says, "That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me" and she processed his Social Security application.

When he gets home, the man excitedly tells his wife about his experience at the social security office. She says, "You should have dropped your pants. You might have gotten disability too."
