The Christmas orders are arriving.  If you have any Christmas orders to place, do it soon.

I finished the BELIEVE sign for the front room.  It looks pretty good except the font that I choose has an I that looks like a J and I’m not crazy about the V, either.  All in all I really like it.

Mermaids are always the topic around here.  While designing Mardi Gras masks, I decided that we must have a mermaid mask.  I took a mermaid design and did an outline and made it fit the mask form.  It was pretty but too tall and the outline of the upper half just didn’t look like a mermaid.  Then I tried a different mermaid and a different tail.  That one looked better but needed more definition with the hair.  Once the hair was changed the design looked good but there were tweaks here and there that needed to be done.  I am still tweaking it, but I do think it is looking much better.

This week was going to be Santa Sack week.  Remember the Santa Sacks that I described that Mama made for Nancy and me?  No one seems to know what they are.  After a search on the internet it appears that these sacks are very popular in Europe and Australia but not in the USA.  That is really a shame because it is such a grand idea.  Anyway, I’ll be glad to make them but custom orders, only.

I have ordered some more red and green tea towels, which should arrive in the next week or two.  If you are interested in festive or even monogrammed towels, let me know.  We also have black and white tea towels.  The black tea towels with the gold fleur de lis are always a good idea for your local Saints fan.

The last black flannel scarf with the gold fleur de lis was sold this past week.  We are now out of the black flannel fabric but I’m sure we could find more if anyone wanted one.  However, flannel may be a bit heavy for this climate.  The scarf can always be constructed from a lighter black fabric.

Thank you Bob for the following:

Two gas company servicemen, a senior training supervisor and a young trainee, were out checking meters in a suburban neighborhood. They parked their truck at the end of the alley and worked their way to the other end. At the last house a woman looking out her kitchen window watched the two men as they checked her gas meter. Finishing the meter check, the senior supervisor challenged his younger coworker to a foot race down the alley back to the truck to prove that an older guy could outrun a younger one. As they came running up to the truck, they realized the lady from that last house was huffing and puffing right behind them. They stopped and asked her what was wrong. Gasping for breath, she replied, "When I see two gas men running as hard as you two were, I figured I'd better run too!"

A visitor from Holland was chatting with his American friend and was jokingly explaining about the red, white and blue in the Netherlands flag. "Our flag symbolizes our taxes, the man said. We get red when we talk about them, white when we get our tax bill, and blue after we pay them." "That's the same with us, the American said, "only we see stars, too."

Little Billy wanted $100 badly and prayed for two weeks but nothing happened. Then he decided to write God a letter requesting the $100. When the postal authorities received the letter addressed to God, USA, they decided to send it to President Bush. The President was so impressed, touched, and amused that he instructed his secretary to send Billy a $5.00 bill. President Bush thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy. Billy was delighted with the $5.00 and sat down to write a thank you note to God, which read:
Dear God,
Thank you very much for sending the money, however, I noticed that for some reason you had to send it through Washington D.C. and, as usual, those crooks deducted $95.00.
